Jamie & Dan’s wedding is coming up in just a few weeks, so we recently braved the heat and did their engagement session (or as I like to call it, their “Get to Know You Portrait Session”) in Charlestown. I can’t believe that I have only been to the Bunker Hill Monument one time before in my life – what a beautiful spot for engagement photos! We had a beautiful evening and the light was gorgeous. From Bunker Hill we walked down to the Charlestown Navy Yard and had an incredible view of Boston.
In addition to making adorable photos, we spent the session talking, laughing, and getting to know each other. Getting to know your photographer is so critical to having wedding photos where you look comfortable and relaxed – I can’t emphasize it enough! And in an engagement session, not only do you get to know your photographer, but you also get used to their style and their approach. On your wedding day, you don’t need any photography jitters, so a Get to Know you Session really helps break the ice.
I had so much fun with these two and am looking forward to their wedding coming up very soon!
