Pinterest Inspired Boston Seaport Engagement Session | Melissa & Bryan

Boston Seaport

Shooting a Boston Seaport engagement session may be one of my favorite engagement shoots! Located on Boston’s waterfront, across from downtown, the Seaport District is one of the city’s most flourishing neighborhoods, and is perfect for engagement session photos! The buildings on the waterfront are full of color and texture, the gorgeous cobblestone walkway gives so much character, and there’s an unforgettable view from Fan Pier Park and in my opinion the best skyline view in Boston!

One of the most important things to me as a photographer are my couples and their stories. This helps me get to know you better and think of the best way possible to make your story come to fruition through each image. When you inquire with me, and book I will send you a questionnaire so I can get to know you both!

Melissa and Bryan knew right away they wanted to have a classy Pinterest Inspired engagement shoot specifically one at seaport and in a restaurant with a bar as Melissa is a huge Pinterest fan and loved the idea of bar pictures with direct flash. When she mentioned this to me I knew right away where we could make her vision come true, ReelHouse in East Boston! With the classic leather restaurant booths and black and white tile backdrop and decor, it was the perfect spot to bring Melissa’s vision to life!

After shooting at ReelHouse we headed to seaport with their dog Koda to capture sunset engagement photos with the city skyline as their backdrop! We thought it might rain the entire time we were shooting as it was raining up until the session but fortunately it barely sprinkled and left some beautiful cloud coverage for the shoot! Even if it had rained both Melissa and Bryan were fully prepared for it to happen. I love when couples can embrace the unknown as it can be hard to foretell what may happen throughout the day especially when it comes to weather!

Capturing Melissa and Bryan’s Boston seaport engagement shoot was a blast. They were both fun-loving and sweet! And what was cool, was that Bryan went to UMass Amherst just like me! It was fun talking to him throughout the day about all of the memories he had there and his friends living in the same apartment complex that I did too. It was like I was talking with friends I’d had for years!

Not only that but, towards the end of the session when we were headed back to our cars I couldn’t find mine as I forgot where I parked and they were so sweet and walked with me searching for over a half hour all around East Boston looking for it. That shows how genuine and kind they are. Couples like this remind me why I love what I do and why I do it!
