From the very beginning, Carolyne and Dan had a vision for their engagement photos. These two live in Boston and love exploring the city, so they decided they wanted to engagement photos at one of their favorite bars, Lucky’s Lounge. Lucky’s is in the Seaport and is a really cool bar with a retro theme. There are cool red booths, wood paneling, and tons of fun memorabilia everywhere. It made for such a cool backdrop for engagement photos.
Carolyne and Dan love photos that have a vintage and editorial look, so we shot a lot of direct flash and film for their session, as well. The dark and cozy bar was the perfect spot for this style of photography. During the session, we chatted and hung out while they grabbed a drink, and we ended up having an interesting chat about engagement photos. Carolyne and Dan both mentioned that when they were originally talking about engagement pictures, they didn’t see themselves in a lot of the photos they saw on pinterest or elsewhere. They couldn’t picture going to a field at sunset or a random park for more traditional photos and wanted to do something that felt more authentic to them. And I love that! I think couples should give themselves full permission to think outside the box and craft an engagement session that represents who you are as a couple.
If you want to talk about engagement and wedding photography that feels less like a random pinterest photo and more like YOU – get in touch here! I’d love to talk to you!
