This Boston Engagement Session on the Rose Kennedy Greenway was so so sweet! Hayley and Andrew met in college and became good friends. They went on their first date by accident – Hayley invited their friends group to a movie and Andrew was the only one who ended up being able to go! After that, they went out for pizza and went rollerskating (how awesome!?) on a real, or at least intentional, first date and the rest is history! They love spending time together and being active together and they learned how to snowboard together when they first started dating. So it was only fitting that Andrew proposed on the mountain on their first snowboarding excursion last winter! He started the proposal on the chair lift on the way up the mountain and finished at the top of the mountain. Hayley said she was really excited but that it was so cold she needed to put her gloves back on right away and had to wait to wear the ring until after they were done snowboarding for the day! Andrew is in the Air Force and will spend the next few months deployed before returning to finish wedding planning for their fall wedding next year. And the sweetest part, they’re getting married on the same mountain where they got engaged!
These two are so so sweet and were naturals in front of the camera. They won the session, along with hair and makeup for Hayley through an Instagram giveaway I did with the talented ladies of Maricruz Hairstyles and Glamour Cosmetics and we all loved meeting them and working with them. Hayley wanted the photos to be green and reflect their love of nature, even in the city, so we stuck to the Rose Kennedy Greenway and it was the perfect green space! And we ended at Faneuil Hall for some photos with ice cream because, why not?! But really because they love ice cream and plan to have a sundae bar at their wedding and wanted to tie it into their engagement session too. Thee ice cream pics of them smiling and sharing and being a goofy are some of my favs!
Congratulations Hayley & Andrew – I loved photographing your love story and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple to win the session! XO
