A walk through the Arnold Arboretum with Laura and John

It wound up being a beautiful day for engagement photography at the Arnold Arboretum with Laura and John.  Maybe a little toasty in the sun for mine and John's taste though.  They wanted a little touch of green for their session and picked the right spot.  A nice contrast to their upcoming wedding in the Seaport of Boston.  Here are a few sneak peeks and a few words about John and Laura's story.

How did you two meet?  We met on the Saint A's tennis team... If you ask us who was better, we'll each give you a different answer. When we met up a few years later, we reconnected instantly and it was like nothing had ever changed!

Tell us the proposal story~  While in Vegas for Laura's birthday in May of 2017, we had planned a helicopter ride from The Strip, over Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, and landing in the Grand Canyon. While standing on the edge of the canyon, overlooking the Colorado River, John said we made a good decision taking the helicopter ride, and that he was going to make an even better decision. He got down on one knee, Laura said yes, and the rest is history.

What look were you going for in your engagement session?

We knew we wanted the engagement shoot to be in nature to contrast with the wedding venue in the Seaport District. The goal was to really let our personalities shine through!

Do you have any tips or advice for couples getting ready for their session?

Relax, have fun with it, and make a day of it. We made the day into an adventure starting with the photoshoot and ending with drinks in the Seaport.

How was your overall session experience?

Trust Christian! It's obvious he has an eye for how photos will look and he is extremely observant and conscious of the surrounding environment. He gave good direction and made it very easy.
