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! :)
I had a blast photographing Matt and Nicole’s Boston Common Proposal! Two years and eight months ago, Matt met Nicole. 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
Akash and Brinda have been together for over a decade! Though they met during their freshman year, they didn’t start dating until their junior year (I hear this is the most brilliant way to do it… or at least, that’s what Jason and I believe… haha! :D) I started stalking them from the Back Bay… Read More
Mike had his proposal planned weeks ago and contacted me once he knew that he’d have a few hours to wander around the city. They’re from DC and were up in Boston for a friend’s wedding / mini vacation! 🙂 Congratulations! Special thanks to Alicia, Lauren and Jen for being my very stealthy decoy friends!… Read More
I remember the day vividly. It was the week of my birthday and I had just arrived at a cozy cabin rental with some of my closest friends. I was ready to hike/explore Acadia National Park for the first time and was teeming with excitement to see the colorful New England foliage. Jason was with me. Sledder was… Read More
Luciana and Ashkan first met in Vancouver, Canada while Luciana was a medical student and Ashkan was a third year neurology resident. Luciana tells me that their first date was in Whistler, Vancouver, which was likely perfect since the two of them love skiing, traveling, hiking and spending time with their rescue dog, Sophie….

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.
