The Boston Common is an iconic park – 50 acres in size, the beginning of the Freedom Trail, and the oldest park in the country. It’s a beautiful green backdrop that I enjoy bringing my wedding bridal parties and immediate families to. (A friendly reminder – Be sure to file for a permit prior to your wedding day!) The Boston Common Frog Pond has been a spot where I grew up ice skating and watching kids splash around!
This are is a popular location for Boston engagement portraits. Often, I suggest to my couples to head towards the Boston Public Gardens, the Common’s younger brother, because I enjoy photographing on the bridge, underneath the bridge, and taking advantage of some of the florals (if they’re in bloom). In both parks are some gorgeous Willow trees that I’ve always admired.
I highly suggest photographing sessions during weekday mornings when the park is less crowded. I prefer creating images where the photograph feels like the couple are the only ones there. It’s much easier when that statement is closer to being the truth! :)
On a brisk Autumn day in the Boston, two people walked by the Pond in Boston Common, fell upon a talented guitarist who played a significant song to them, Chris Young’s “She’s Got This Thing About Her”.

The two travel the world together, share desserts, run road races, and spend quality time with their dog, Charlie. On a fall day in Boston, Matt told Nicole that it’d be a great afternoon to… Read More
There’s a reason why Acorn Street is the most photographed street in Boston, it’s gorgeous, private and cozy – and the perfect place to orchestrate a proposal! I had so much fun walking around Beacon Hill and the Commons with these two. Capturing this emotional moment was so worth it! And there was a horse… Read More
Nikki and Tim met when they were both paralegals studying at Suffolk Law School. While sharing a class together they bonded over homework and their shared love for trying new foods. Now they are engaged and I had the chance to revisit some of their favorite spots around the city with them for a beautiful… Read More
Eda, Simon and I had a lovely sunset stroll through the cobblestone streets of Beacon Hill and through the lush greenery of the Boston Public Gardens for their engagement session.
“It sounds silly, but for me it was love at first sight. I remember driving home after our first date and thinking, ‘I think I’m going to marry this man.’” Molly wasn’t alone in her thinking, but for Matt, that thought independently popped up in his mind during the next date, which lasted over 13… Read More
