Katie and John are college sweethearts – my favorite! They met at Boston College the first day of freshman year. Katie explained that they each had significant others from high school at the time, but they became friends and then began dating during their sophomore year when they were both newly single. They’ve been together for 6 years now and are so excited to be getting married in April!
These two live right in the heart of the North End of Boston so we decided it was the perfect spot for their engagement session. With a Spring wedding, they decided to brave a super windy and chilly day in early winter for their photos. And they picked perfect winter outfits with chic coats and cozy hats and gloves as accents. We started out on the roof deck of their building where they have some seriously epic views of Boston’s changing skyline. Then we warmed up before hitting the cute cobblestone streets and side alleys of the North End for the rest of their session.
Classic North End: Paul Revere House
Because Katie and John live in the neighborhood, often passing little squares and finding shortcuts around the tourists on back roads, we made these paths part of their session. And they loved the idea of incorporating some classic icons of the North End, so we just had to take a few photos in front of Paul Revere’s house! The cold and wind meant we had the place to ourselves for photos.
Christopher Columbus Park
We ended the session at Christopher Columbus Park, right at the edge of the North End and right on the water. And again we lucked out that the weather kept the crowds away. So snuggles ensued and these two kept each other warm for a few more fun shots! It’s safe to say that these two are totally adorable and their wedding in April is going to be absolutely lovely! Congrats Katie & John! XO
