Seaport Engagement Photography with Michelle & Jeff

Michelle and Jeff chose the Seaport area for their summer, Boston engagement session because it had special meaning.  Not only did their story start there but so did the development of their relationship with a proposal!  Here's how it started from the couple...

"We met online and during our first date in the Seaport we had quickly discovered all that we had in common and were shocked that our paths had never crossed before. We grew up living five minutes away from each other in the small town of Sharon, MA and attended the same high school and college. We also worked in the buildings next to each other in Boston. We immediately hit it off and had a second date planned before the first one ended!"

From there their relationship continued to get stronger finally leading up to a proposal...

"It was a chilly December evening and Jeff had planned a dinner date at Legal Harborside where we first met. His best friend had dropped us off there and was strangely lurking around while we walked away. Jeff asked if I wanted to take a walk before dinner and I suggested that we just get a drink somewhere else since it was so cold out. He insisted on taking a walk and took my hand making a sharp turn for the boardwalk around the restaurant. We walked down to where we had our first kiss and Jeff knelt down on one knee and asked me to marry him! His friend was watching from afar and could hear my excitement from down the street."

The happy couple is getting married at the beautiful Gardens at Elm Bank in Wellesley, surrounded by their closest friends and family this September.  When we asked what they were most excited about, celebrating with friends and family from near and far was at the top of their list!  They can't wait for the romantic feel of the gardens and carriage house at their venue, which is exactly the feel they were going for!

Here is advice for other engagement couples from Michelle and Jeff...

"Just have fun and enjoy the moment - choose a place that is special to you both to do the session."

"We really enjoyed the experience and Christian provided great direction to us throughout the session - it flew by and we can't wait to see the photos!"
