Happy March, dear readers! You know what they say about the month of March. In like a lion, out like a lamb. Although this month is shaping up to be pretty busy for me and I’m very excited about that. Like I said last time I wrote, I truly don’t believe there really is such a thing called “the off season.” This winter has been filled with a bunch of engagement sessions for me and I am very happy to share this first one with you.
So……meet Meghan and Jonathan. I am thrilled to be photographing their Maine wedding this July at a gorgeous location in Sullivan not too far from where Meghan spent many childhood summers. The couple currently lives in Cambridge, MA, but Meghan’s ties to Maine, and the dream of getting married here someday, compelled them to choose our lovely state. I love them for that! They are an insanely fun couple who I clicked with right away when we had our first consultation.
So when we were brainstorming ideas for their engagement shoot, and I told them that I would really love to come to Boston and do the shoot there, Meghan suggested a popular bowling alley in Davis Square. They didn’t even need to go any further and tell me that this bowling alley also had a full bar, pizza and drink service to your lane. I was just so excited about the bowling!! But those other things were pretty awesome too. Seriously. They are a couple after my own heart: beer and pizza AND I get to take your photos?! SWEET!
I met them at their apartment and they took me to Flatbread (yes, the same establishment like the one we have in Portland on Commercial Street for those of you that have been). Only this restaurant is inside a vintage, candle pin bowling alley!! We had some amazing pizza at the bar right under this ridiculous skylight that was just pouring in perfect light…perfect for photographs, of course. Then we got our lane and bowled for about an hour. After a few drinks and being beat by the kids in the lane next to us, we were off to our next location for some final shots of the afternoon. We stopped at the campus of Tufts University for some photos on top of the rooftop garden (not in season yet, of course), but it boasted great views of Boston even on the overcast day. I cannot wait to see what these two creative people have cooked up for their wedding. So far I’m hearing smatterings of dahlias and driftwood. It’s already making me wish for summer!
