I’m so excited to share my first official shoot of 2012! Our original session date was pushed back due to rain, and we serendipitously wound up choosing the most beautiful day of the year, thus far. We laughed, we wandered, we bonded. To top everything off, our session was bookended with delicious locally brewed beers. It was a perfect start to the season.
Meet Derek & Danielle:
As New England natives, and *naturally* huge fans of Boston sports, Fenway Park was a fitting place to start. With bright colors and countless nooks, this beloved ballpark is a wonderful location for a couple like Derek & Dani. Derek was free to play (and would probably swat me if I shared the outtakes), while Dani (the yin to his yang) was able to relax & enjoy the quiet that the off season provides. Dani was a bit shy for the camera at first, but started to work it pretty quickly. I don’t know what I love more… that beautiful smile below, or the smile Derek has while watching her.
Color + typography + snuggles = awesome
After pausing to switch lenses, I looked up and caught a quick, natural moment… quickly followed by a photobombing. St Patty’s was the day before, and apparently these guys never ended the party. I’m pretty sure they wanted their own shoot.
Next, we headed over to The Fens to enjoy the golden hour. I’m obsessed with the Phragmites there, so I was disappointed to see that they are in the process of being removed. Thankfully, we were still able to catch a few magical moments in the reeds, and the section that has already been burnt provided an interesting (though dirty) place to explore.
Last stop on our ramble was amidst the Fenway Victory Gardens. Enchanting and hushed, some gardeners who tend to these plots have created their own romantic little worlds… some complete with hammock. These quiet moments were my favorite of the day.
Danielle & Derek, I had such a good time! I’m looking forward to your wedding day, and, of course, getting together for Shephards Pie.
