So I don't know who said that the busy season for wedding photographers is May-September but I think they forgot to send me the memo. It's been crazy busy over here with engagement shoots, anniversary shoots, video filming (you do NOT want to miss the blog everyday next week), speaking at a local photography conference and booking lots of exciting 2013 weddings.
Which is all awesome and fun but this little ol' blog feels a bit neglected. Not to worry. I have a fun engagement session at Boston University for you today, an actual proposal in Vermont tomorrow and an anniversary shoot on Friday. Next week is VIDEO week. No I'm not doing video now, still wedding photography only - it's a surprise... And the week after that I have headshots, a goergeous newborn baby boy and some fabulous vendor interviews - florists, Boston wedding venues and much more....
First up are Aubrey & Mike's engagement pictures on the Boston University (BU) campus. Aubrey and Mike got in touch with me through the fabulous Andria of Infinite Events (who I worked with on an amazing wedding at the Boston Aquarium with last June). I told Aubrey & Mike that they are lucky bunnies having Andria plan their wedding as she's beyond organized, so well prepared and just lovely to work with.
Aubrey had got out of a relationship and had gone out with her girlfriends to relax and dance. They were in a club when Mike and some of his friends came over to talk. Mike started dancing with Aubrey and Aubrey remembers thinking he was cute but that she wasn't interested in a random guy at a club. As luck would have it, Mike's friends knew Aubrey's friends and they all ended up going out for something to eat together.
Mike may have managed to get Aubrey's number and send a sweet "Goodnight" message at the end of the night. With their friends in common Mike invited Aubrey over to a poker night and that was that! They've been together ever since:
An interesting sculpture on the BU beach (I actually photographed engagement pictures here before once although it was a lot warmer! )
Mike claims to not like having his picture taken but he was a trooper for the afternoon:
I even got him giggling whilst sitting with Aubrey on a bench on the BU beach:
Mike looks at Aubrey in a very sweet way :)
Bye bye Aubrey and Mike, I'll see you next month when you get MARRIED!! So excited :)
