After a few cancelled appointments and some reckless driving around Newton, MA, we finally got the sky just right for a sweet “Save the Date” shot. Special thanks to Charles River Canoe and Kayak for letting us set up on one of their docks!
When Sam approached me to do her senior portraits, I asked her what she had in mind. She showed me some outdoor shots her friend had taken in the summer, and she wanted something similar. After a lot of indecision, she then suggested taking shots in her Grandfather’s backyard. As you can see, we came up with some better ideas.
Sam and I made a trip to the Charles River Esplanade in Boston, nailing the classic senior shot in front of one of the park’s beautiful willows.
We then started getting more creative, playing with the backdrops. Here’s Samantha in front of Boston’s gorgeous Financial District.
Samantha mentioned she is a dancer and busted out a leg kick that would impress an NFL punter, making for another great shot – look at that perfectly placed sun!
We hopped back into the car and made our way over to East Boston just in time to get the perfect sunset lighting. In then end, I’d say the Boston skyline turned out to be a little more photogenic than her grandfather’s tool shed. Thanks Samantha!
If you think Amy and Mark look familiar, it’s because we recently featured their engagement session from earlier this year on the blog. Like those shots, their wedding was fantastically unique, scrapping a traditional ceremony for family-and-friend-filled festival of fun. Yes, that was quite the alliteration.
The reception was at the Stepping Stone Ranch, a rustic space in Escoheag, RI, that specializes in gorgeous, rustic country weddings. Great food and a cool venue, but most importantly, an excellent and wildly in love couple. They have a lifetime of happiness to look forward to, as the last photo I caught was a nice moment between loving grandparents.
How perfect is that.
