Sophia and Michael's North End engagement shoot

Fall and winter are always busy times to shoot in the North End.  The fall colors with the warm tones of the brick and the general bad-assery of the entire neighborhood is just awesome!  Whenever a couple chooses the North End for their shoot we are always pumped!  Not to mention, the commute isn't bad either!!!!

Sophia and Michael had another storybook start....crowded room with a fateful look that resulted in a ZING!!!!

We met through a mutual friend. Michael and I were both attending a close friends birthday party down at the Seaport District. As soon as we locked eyes and started talking we both felt a strong connection. We've been inseparable since.

The proposal story is always our favorite part when we are meeting with a couple.  Just imaging all of the planning, the secret shopping trips, advice from friends and family and then on to the day of...the excitement, nerves, anticipation and pure bliss!  No couple can ever retell the story of this day without an infectious smile and dreamy look in their eyes.  Here is their proposal story....

It was a cold, rainy day filled with surprises. Michael had planned a lunch date down by the Seaport where we had our first date. I was reluctant to go at first since my father was feeling a bit under the weather that day (thinking back now, I'm sure he wasn't quite ready for what was about to happen). Once my father heard I was reconsidering Michaels plans he convinced me that he was fine and for us to still go about our day. After our romantic lunch, Michael was set on walking around the waterfront in the rain. As we strolled through Rowes Wharf Michael unexpectedly had stopped as I continued to walk ahead. Once I realized I was walking alone I turned around to find Michael down on one knee asking me to marry him! I was in complete shock as tears of joy filled my eyes and I of course said, Yes!

Their May wedding will take place in St. Nectarios Greek Orthodox Church in Roslindale, with the reception at Lakeview Pavilion in Foxborough and we already know they are envisioning their day with their perfect venues, but we wanted to know what else they are looking forward to!

The full experience. We try and savor every moment since we know how fast the day will come and go. We are so excited to celebrate our love with all our family and friends.

Ok guys, now tell us about your session...was it everything you were hoping for??

We wanted our photos to capture our love, in the city that we love so much - Boston.  We both really enjoyed working with Christian. Throughout our session there was no awkward moment and Christian provided great direction. We cannot wait to see what he will capture on our Wedding day.

We can't wait for your wedding day to see you marry your soul mate and start your lives together!!!  And of course, for us to shoot all of it!!!!
