We started out at the Boston Beer Works (admittedly, this little stop had a lot to do with me craving their amazing blueberry beer). Then, we ended up with unexpected access to Fenway Park (the trick was to LOOK as if we belonged at the party we were “unofficially invited to” by one of the guests who saw us on the street!) No one questioned our presence so we just strolled right up to the World Series trophies….. What a great surprise for our session since James is a huge Boston sports fan! Sometimes, you just have to roll with it! But, our Fenway side trip meant we burned through our daylight so we had to finish everything else in the dark – with a wrap up at the bar where Catherine and James first met. But, I love shooting in the dark – so with the exception of our drive back to CT in the wee hours of the morning, this session was perfect!
Catherine and James are having their wedding at the Omni Parker Hotel in Boston this September. I am suuuuuuuuper excited! I love the history in Boston and I can’t wait to shoot my first Omni Parker Wedding! And, if their wedding is anywhere near as much fun as their engagement, I will hardly be able to contain myself!!!
And when we saw this sign, we just could NOT resist!!!!!!!
And then we got our random chance to get into Fenway! We created this soft glowy light with a little off camera flash – trying to use the right gear for the look we wanted – but still trying not to draw attention to ourselves….. a little tough!
And it doesn’t get better than this if you are a Red Sox fan! (Disclaimer – being from Colorado, I get to appreciate BOTH the Red Sox and Yankees – though favor the Yankees so as to support my Yankees fan husband and Yankees fan Studio Manager! But, if push comes to shove and I HAD to pick a team? Simple….. go ROCKIES!)
The next two are some of my favorites from the night……
Then off to the Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market area to find the bar where Catherine and James first met.
