Flavia and Ben met via OKCupid, and really make me believe in whatever algorithms those companies must be using. I knew I liked Flavia and Ben immediately when we first met. They are both really laid back and a lot of fun and seem to genuinely have a great time with each other. They were so easy to be around and a ton of fun to shoot with. Flavia was interested in shooting in the Fort Point area and showed me some really awesome spots. I have never really explored this part of the city much and I'm grateful to Flavia and Ben for showing me around! We ended in the Seaport and were able to catch some awesome, golden hour light at the end of the day.
The best days are the ones where the only plans you have are to meet up with people you love and just enjoy the day. My friends Mel and Al sell antiques (White Star Antiques)and had this gorgeous map of Boston that I wanted to buy from them, so they came up to Boston. It was the most gorgeous day and after like the best Indian Food I have ever had, we headed to the Mt. Auburn Cemetery. Despite being a cemetery, it's such a totally gorgeous area and is a lovely place to wander. A+ day.
I must totally be a good luck charm, because every proposal I have shot so far has ended up with a yes :) This day ended up being a bit colder than we thought it would be and Alyssa definitely needed a bit of coaxing to get her to the spot but it all ended up working out! These two are incredibly sweet with each other and it was so cool to be able to shoot so many purely organic, intimate moments.
I can not say enough how much I love shooting proposals. Going through the pictures afterwards is always amazing because the moment it self goes so quickly. I love being able to help preserve such a quick, but important moment in people's lives.
