Hello

Megan & Brendan: Fan Pier Engagement Session

arrow

Couples

It was the perfect night on Fan Pier for Megan and Brendan’s engagement session! We’ve learned to not fixate on the forecast, as the weather in New England can be fickle. But when it’s clear that the weather will be sunny and 75 with the gentlest breeze, it makes my heart soar! Boston is magical […]

Holly & Eric: Plum Island Engagement Session

arrow

Couples

“He’s had a crush on me since middle school!” Holly shared with us during a call last year. It’s hard to believe that middle school was twenty years ago. A time when peers were getting their first cell phones – flip phones, at that! A time before social media, where after school activities were the […]

Sarah & Chris: Salem Massachusetts Engagement Session

arrow

Couples

They grew up in the same charming seaside town, attending the same schools and sharing some of the same traditions. Their lives intertwined at one quintessential high school milestone: junior prom. On that day, they began writing their story together. They began to share memories and build the life that has led them here. And […]

Couples

This session was such a treat! It was the cherry on top of an incredible season of engagement sessions, marking our final one of 2023. Megan and Sam found a gem of a location, choosing Borderland State Park for their engagement session on a beautiful October afternoon. It was an extra special session where we […]

Boston North End Engagement Session

Couples

Brianna and Rob are so special to us! Their North End engagement session in Boston was a dream come true. It’s not every day that we get to incorporate a New England icon into portraits! But with a quick visit to Mike’s Pastry, their session felt more like a double date than anything. We first […]

Jamie & Peter: Essex County Greenbelt Engagement Session

Couples

It is such a treat when our couples have a vision for their engagement session. We always enjoy bringing our creativity and ideas to sessions. But it’s really special when our brides and grooms collaborate with us and share their ideas, too! When we were planning their session, Jamie shared that she loves the romantic […]

Paige & Kevin: Round Hill Beach Engagement Session

Couples

October was showing off for Paige and Kevin’s engagement session at Round Hill Beach! It was an unseasonably warm day with the perfect breeze, bringing in the best parts of summer and fall in New England. It was our first time visiting the South Coast of Massachusetts and we had the best time! Round Hill […]

Hannah & Nick: Harkness Memorial State Park Engagement

arrow

Couples

Dillon and I absolutely love adventure. Our earliest days of dating involved many “adventure days” with long car rides to new places. Our most recent engagement session was reminiscent of that, bringing us to the beautiful Connecticut coast! When Hannah shared that she and Nick had chosen Harkness Memorial State Park for their engagement session, […]

Kiara & Sam: Francestown NH Engagement Session

arrow

Couples

I don’t often publish two blog posts in one day, but this one is too special to wait any longer. This Francestown NH engagement session is one of my favorite of all time for a special reason. The bride-to-be is our younger sister, Kiara! We just love her and Sam and we were over the […]

Lissa & Nick: Essex County Engagement Session

arrow

Couples

“There are two times of year for me: football season, and waiting for football season.” This Darius Rucker quote is always top of mind in the Shattuck household when September rolls around. So naturally, the conversation between the guys flowed toward football during Lissa and Nick’s Essex County engagement session. Nick casually mentioned that he […]
