Engagement Photographs :: Boston Common + Fenway Park :: Renee + Kevin

Once upon a time there was a guy named Kevin and a girl named Renee. They worked together in a big office for almost three years and slowly became friends.

Renee and Kevin would hang out and one night they shared a kiss. And then they had a big long talk about how they should just be together.

So after the kiss and the talk Renee and Kevin went on a date to Douzo. In my opinion this is the way to do it - get the kiss and the "where are we going talk?" out of the way and then have a kick-ass date.

Well actually, Renee almost died when she choked on her edamame plus the tables were set together very cozily and the guy next to her kept threatening to share her food.

Regardless, the date went well
- to quote Renee "we were just joined at the hip after that"
- to quote Kevin "yup, she came to stay and never left"

I had such a great time on Saturday morning taking engagement pictures of Kevin and Renee on the Boston Common and around Fenway Park:

Kevin was a little....shall we say skeptical about thoe whole lifestyle shoot so we snapped a few on the Boston Common and then stopped for a couple of beers at Joe's American Grill on Newbury Street.

Feeling nicely refreshed and with perhaps the tiniest buzz, we headed over to Fenway Park to get some photographs there. See - now Kevin is nice and relaxed:

Isn't this how every couple spends Saturday morning? Find an interesting architectural backdrop and then casually sit and look cool...

Renee and Kevin are SO much fun and I love their approach to wedding planning. Anytime they have a contract to review or a big decision to make, they head to their local bar for wedding discussions. Brides - take note, your grooms will thank you for this!

When I first received an inquiry email from Renee it was so happy and chatty telling me all about their upcoming wedding at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel in May 2011. She signed off "thanks for letting me babble" and I had a feeling that we'd get along. When I check my email and see a note from Renee in my inbox I smile as I know it's going to brighten up my day. And so to finish I think Renee brightens up Kevin's day and they are just perfect for one another:

  12. Okay, Rich and I are having another debate! We both LOVE the photo under the tree (it is EPIC!). Gorgeous! So the question is: with the bright sunlight in the background, how did you get the detail in the tree trunk to be so sharp? I was guessing you used a flash, but Rich doesn't think so. He thinks you exposed for the tree and let the sky get overblown. Hmm... maybe he's right. But the trees in the background are still clear!

  13. @Neeta & Rich. Rich wins this debate. No flash used. I exposed for the skin tones which blew out the sky (which I wasn't concerned about with the tree being in most of the picture). The tree trunk was actually lighter in the original image so I burned it in a little. I shot with an aperture of 2.8 but it's a really wide lens so the plane of focus isn't too shallow and detail is shown in the tree trunk. So now dinner is on Neeta I guess? :)
