This was a wonderful shoot with Shauna and David in the North End. You can feel the love these two have for each other just by looking at their smiles. Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot as well as a few words from the couple about their story.
How did you two meet?
David and I met at a cookout in Boston in August 2015 where both my sorority and his fraternity were represented. I actually put my number in his phone one, because I thought he was cute, and two, because his fraternity brother was having an after party and I wanted the address!
Tell us the proposal story~
In early 2018, David told me that we were going to do a photo shoot for our two year anniversary in April 2018. The day came, and I was completely oblivious! David brought all of our friends and family together (caught me completely off guard) to watch a film that he had put together, with a voice over speaking about the act of falling in love. At the end of the video, David gave a speech (and shed a tear or two), walked over to me, and got down on one knee and proposed!
What details are you most excited about for your wedding?
I'm super excited to celebrate our love with all of our guests! I'm also excited about our venues - a beautiful church in Hyde Park for the ceremony, and a scenic view of the Charles for our reception. And of course, I'm very excited about the food!!
Where are you getting married? Greater Faith in Hyde Park
Where is the reception? Royal Sonesta in Cambridge
What look were you going for in your engagement session?
David and I wanted to capture our dressy side, as well as capture our more casual side (while getting some cute photos for our save the dates!) We also wanted to capture our sorority and fraternity, as that's what brought us together!
We chose the North End for photos because of its importance to me (my grandfather grew up there!) and the TD Garden because David loves sports - it's also where we had out first "official" date.
Do you have any tips or advice for couples getting ready for their session?
Relax and be yourselves! You want the photos to capture who you really are as a couple - so when you look back in a few years the photos resonate with you.
