I have an engagement session coming up, so I was reviewing some of my past engagement sessions for inspiration. They really put a smile on my face, so I thought I would share a few.
For this one, I waited in a snow storm to capture the actual surprise proposal.
The 1 above and the 2 below are from my first engagement session. This couple is one of the reason I got started in the business. They are friends, so I did their engagement pictures. They asked (begged) me to photograph their wedding. I told them that they didn't want me because I didn't know what I was doing. They didn't care. I caved, scared as hell, I did it. That was it, I loved it and I was hooked. The pictures were not perfect, but it motivated me to take some courses and improve my skills.
Not tack sharp, but good expression. I love natural expressions.
I did another surprise proposal last spring in Boston. These never get tired. She was totally shocked and her reactions were priceless.
It was freezing on this day on the beach, but I love the images we got. This one just felt black and white to me. Maybe the goosebumps don't show as much.
I love to take shots from behind the couples when we are walking. Just look at their pinkies intertwined.
I have always wanted to own a truck like this to use in photo shoots. Paul Spender in Sharon, was gracious enough to let me borrow it for my daughter and son-in-law's engagement pictures.
Dogs in engagement photos seem to be a thing for me. Can't say that I mind. I love dogs.
Just look at the dog's expression in this one!
Being a hopeless romantic, I love looking at these images. I will end with several more images that I really like. I hope you enjoy looking at them, too!
After 31 years of teaching, I have decided to retire and start a new chapter of my life as a photographer. It has been my passion for about 7 years now.
