This session was a gift from Jimmy to his new wife, Erika. They didn’t have engagement photos done for their wedding this past fall and he thought it would be a sweet Christmas present – and I obviously think he made a great choice! Originally from New York State, the two have lived up on Monument Hill in Charlestown for 4 years. They asked me to capture the charm and beauty of the historic neighborhood in addition to their love and joy for each other. Erika also asked me to include a lot of “artsy” shots – a photographer’s dream client! So I broke out my Lensbaby for a few softer shots as well as incorporated the lively and gorgeous atmosphere of the neighborhood. We finished off the shoot down in the Navy Yard, watching a perfect sunset over the Boston skyline. I think the result is a series of portraits that are creative, classic and modern all at the same time.
Quick warning : there are a lot of photos in this blog entry as I had a lot of trouble editing down my favorites. I hope Erika and Jim love these photos as much as I do!
