“Right now we are here, and nothing can match our perfection, or steal the joy of this perfect moment.” – Audrey Niffenegger, (The Time Traveler’s Wife)
A versatile city like Boston provides any number of gorgeous backdrops for a young couple in love. However, there is something so special, so intimate about photographing a couple in their own neighborhood. A peek inside the home of the engaged. The documenting of the day to day life experienced in a young, maturing love. These are the moments, right here, that can be looked upon 50 years down the line and instantly transplant them back. These are the honest portrayals of joyous love and it’s simple glory. These are the days, in all their unmatched perfection, that build the foundation for everything yet to come.
Meet Matt & Meadow:
On a beautiful autumn day, I met Matt & Meadow outside of their Brownstone in the South End. Joining us to enjoy the brisk, fresh air was Molly, their fur child. Molly happily led the group along one of her routine walks, and was even kind enough to give a tour of the apartment, in exchange for treats and ear scratching. Leaving her at home for quality time with her Kong, Matt & Meadow enjoyed a leisurely stroll through the neighborhood, stopping for drinks at the bistro where they celebrated their engagement. The South End was full of color and delight, but what really stood out the most was the comfort and joy that washed over their faces each time Matt & Meadow embraced. I felt that in those moments… I could see THEM… and my heart melted.
Matt & Meadow, I’m so happy that our paths intersected. Thank you for allowing me this peek into your lives. With your wedding merely weeks away, my anticipation grows daily. I can think of nowhere I would rather be this New Years Eve, and I can think of no better reason to be celebrating!
