Couples

Happy New Year, friends! I’m excited to kick off the new year with a beautiful winter engagement session photographed in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Lizzy and Max are sweet as can be and are serving as the perfect bookends to 2023 for KSP. Their session was my first of the year and their wedding will mark the […]

Aubrey & Nolan: Concord MA Fall Engagement Session

Couples

Aubrey and Nolan’s Concord MA engagement session was everything lovely about late fall in New England. Minuteman National Historical Park is one of my favorite places in the whole world. I’ve shared about my affinity for “notebook time” in the past. Much of KSP was dreamed up on the Old Manse boathouse dock with my […]

Couples

I’m so excited to share Brenna and Travis’s Watch Hill engagement session with you today! Their session is the very first one that Dillon was available to join me for. Having him there made it feel like a double date and it was such a treat. We strolled along East Beach and the Ocean House […]

Jordan & Zach: Crane Beach Late Summer Engagement Session

Couples

Photos are one of the most important and tangible ways to preserve the sweetest moments of life. For many couples, the first photos together are taken sometime in college or the years that follow. They can eventually look back and say that they walked alongside each other for 50, 60, or even 70 years. But […]

Couples

Adrienne and Dan are the textbook definition of a storybook couple. Their Appleton Farms engagement session was sweet as can be. After a long heat wave, Ipswich graced us with a mild evening and the loveliest breeze, the earliest wisps of fall. We had the grounds to ourselves, perfect for dancing among the wildflowers and […]

Mary and Matt’s North Shore Summer Engagement session was magical. While planning their session, Mary shared that she dreamt of a unique coastal location with tall grass and a pretty view. My mind immediately went to one of my favorite picnic date spots in Essex, Massachusetts. It is a perennial favorite of Dillon and I, […]

Portraits

Liz and Tim’s Crane Beach summer engagement session filled my heart right up to the brim. They exude the kind of warmth and joy that leaves you feeling so encouraged from the moment you meet them. I met Liz virtually earlier this year and loved her right away, but this was my first time meeting […]

I am so excited to share this Back Bay spring engagement session with you today! This was my second time photographing engagement portraits on Commonwealth Ave this year and let me tell you, springtime in Boston is magical. Add a sunny, 75-degree evening and it gets even better. Carol and Jon have called Boston home […]

Kayla & Brian: Crane Beach Spring Engagement Session

Couples

I am so excited to share today’s classic Crane Beach spring engagement session. Kayla and Brian are *the* epitome of a classic New England couple. He’s from the Cape, and she’s from a Connecticut town that could easily neighbor Stars Hollow. He proposed at Brant Point, an iconic Nantucket Lighthouse (Dillon and I celebrated our […]

Boston Public Garden Winter Engagement Session

Portraits

It was a quiet February afternoon on the day of Hilary and Matt’s Public Garden winter engagement session. I had just parked and was walking through Copley when a few snowflakes landed on my lashes. We were meeting on the Beacon Hill side, at the very spot where they were engaged in November. They are […]
