In 7 years of photographing couples in the New England area I haven't photographed engagement pictures at Boston College. And then I was there twice in one week!
Not only does BC have a beautiful campus but I also enjoyed the challenge not to duplicate any pictures and to try to make each session unique. That was made even easier by the fact that we were joined by Lola on this shoot. Lola is an English bulldog of approximately 2 years. As you can tell by this picture Lola was beside herself with excitement for pictures:
Fast forward through friendship and a relationship, Steve had the engagement ring and planned a romantic dinner at Giacomo's. His plan was to ask Hanna to take a walk after dinner over to Christopher Columbus park and to propose under the trellis.
However, it was a freezing cold winter night and Hanna was wearing heels so she vetoed the walk to go home and snuggle up in the warmth. They drove past Christopher Columbus Park on the way home and Hanna remarked on how pretty it was with the archways all lit up with twinkly lights and wouldn't it have been nice to stop by....best made plans...
Steve figured there's no place like home and asked Hanna as soon as they got back home. Hanna said yes!
