Hilary and David : A Boston Engagement

I met up with Hilary and David a few days ago for their engagement session in Boston. While planning their session a few months ago they mentioned that they would be going to City Hall to apply for the marriage license. I suggested I tag along and document it for them as part of their session and they agreed it would be fun. If you haven't been to Boston City Hall, you are missing out on some seriously dark architecture. But no matter how dark the brick and concrete interior is, the excitement of all the couples applying for their marriage licenses brightens the place up. I loved the filing system with book after book, year after year, of marriage licenses stacked along the walls.  Once they completed their application, and raised their hands to swear that they are who they are and doing this on their own will, we headed towards Boston's North End for some fun photos. It was a real treat and honor for me to witness their application, and I had a lot of fun getting to know them. Their wedding is this May and I can't wait to see them again!

Begum and Barry : Boston Engagement Photography

I had such a blast meeting up with Begum and Barry last Wednesday for their engagement session. They will be tying the knot this August and will be doing so in grand fashion at their restaurant - 5 Corners Kitchen in Marblehead, MA. Begum and Barry were introduced to us by our good friend, former bride, and wedding planner Alison McMaster, owner of Masterfully Planned.

Begum and Barry took some time off from their crazy busy schedule of running a high end restaurant to unwind in the city, dine out, and have some photos taken. They brought along Mavi, and amazingly well behaved dog who was put to the test (and passed with flyer colors) when confronted with a flock of ducks. I can't wait to see them all again in August! Cheers ~ Matt

Autumn and Rob's Boston Engagement

I am so excited to share this engagement session. Meet Autumn and Rob. They were introduced to us from our good friend and fellow photographer Pamela Price. Autumn and Rob are getting married next winter at Church Landing and they just told me that Bear Fight will be at their wedding. I am incredibly stoked about this addition! For their engagement session we started at the Massachusetts State House where Rob works for Senator Timilty, stopped by the Red Hat where they had their first date, and ended with a cheers at The Bell in Hand. It was incredibly fun to photograph these two and shoot inside the State House. Of all the places inside the State House you'd think I'd get excited about I found this amazing blue wall in an old stairwell with gorgeous daylight coming in through the windows. It was an awesome spot for a few portraits. I really enjoyed spending the afternoon with these two and can not wait to see them again at their wedding! 

Cheers! ~ Matt
