Stas and I had our engagement shoot in June. It was shot by the very talented Jeff Newcum, who also did our wedding photography.
We chose to do the shoot in Boston for several reasons: (1) Stas works there, so it was convenient, and (2) since our wedding was going to have more of a romantic, garden feel, we wanted our engagement shoots to be different – urban and colorful.
We started at the “gateway” to Chinatown:
Then we found a red wall nearby:
Next, we headed towards the park and stopped to pose along the way:
And we finally arrived at the park…
I never get tired of looking at these pictures – I love them so much!
Some couples may choose to skip on a professional engagement shoot, because it’s an extra cost – and weddings are NOT cheap! But I highly recommend it. The day of the wedding, you’re going to have so much going on that you’re not going to have time to step away from and take a lot of shots like this. AND you’ll be able to use the shots in Save-the-Dates, Thank You Cards, Invitations, reception decor, etc.!!!
Wedding pictures coming soon 🙂
