Engagement Shoot with Amber & Taylor
On February 18th 2019, I had the privilege to direct the engagement session of Amber Erdman & Taylor Dennis. This couple explained to me that their initial consultation that they had a love of the outdoors as well as the changing of the seasons. They had chosen to book their wedding well in advance, and were waiting for a fresh snow to take their engagement portraits.
Well on the morning of February 2nd, they received their wish. The greater Boston area received approximately a foot of snow in the early morning hours. Around ten in the morning I received a call from Taylor asking if I was available, and off we went.
We chose the location of Word's End Park in Hingham for our shoot for many reasons. First and foremost it's a beautiful park which offer portrait opportunities during every season. Secondly, it was close to both of us. Third, it involves a bit of a hike to get there and it was unlikely to be very crowded, especially during a snow storm.
The snow was really falling and made for an amazing atmosphere to the session. I try to only do one or two formal poses at an engagement session. The rest will be made with directed actions and fun games. In addition to better portraits, this also leads to a much more fun and enjoyable experience.
One of the beautiful aspects of World's End Park is the variety of views it offers. You enter the park with rolling hills and pastureland. But when you get further end you encounter amazing bluffs and beaches.
