“Being with her, I never laughed so hard or had so much fun as when we are together… I knew by our second date I wanted to share the rest of my life with her.” ~Jeff
When I met Shae and Jeff a few months ago, I could instantly feel the love that they had for each other spread through the room and make any other couple sitting by envious. I throughly enjoyed getting to know the both of them and hearing their stories. Such a sweet and fun couple, they had me laughing all night. Together they have such a fun and charismatic lifestyle that truly embraces each other and their families.
We planned their engagement shoot for the beach between Seabrook, NH and Salisbury, MA. Just a normal day at the beach doing their favorite things; walking, talking, playing scrabble and the day would not have been complete without their just as enthusiastic labrador Jackson joining us!
I do believe Jackson is stealing the show in the images below…
After playing on the beach we walked over to a sandy area and threw out a blanket. Shae popped out their favorite game, and they just sat and played for awhile.
To watch these two interact is pure joy.
The two of you are so fun and refreshing to be around! I can not wait for your wedding next November!
A wedding was on the horizon. The Bride & Groom had decided, after many failed attempts, that the only way to introduce their friends would be to bring them together as part of their bridal party. And so Angela, a bridesmaid, was paired with Robbie, a groomsman. Thus begins their story…
It was at a pre-wedding party where Angela & Robbie first met. Robbie made a tray of Homemade Pumpkin Whoopee Pies (um, yum!) to bring to the festivities. Angela saw this the perfect opportunity to make her interest known. Like any Whoopee Pie loving person (and who isn’t!), she took one for the team and consumed not one, or two, but THREE pies! Thankfully, Robbie got the hint and quickly became her friend.
A few weeks later, Robbie asked Angela to join him for dinner at an Italian restaurant in Boston. Their connection was instantaneous. Time flew as they chatted the night away. Before either was aware, they had closed down the restaurant! Soon after they had their second date, followed by their first kiss. The rest? Well, the rest has all led up to this moment where Angela & Robbie now stand, ready to walk down the aisle, just as their friends were when they first met.
Robbie proposed to Angela last winter so it was only fitting that it the Boston area would get hit with a snowstorm the day of their engagement shoot!
This first image is one of my absolute favorites! So beautiful! So perfectly Romantic!
The only thing predictable about early Spring in New England is how UNPREDICTABLE the weather can be! In the case of Angela & Robbie’s engagement shoot, Mother Nature did not disappoint!
On the day of their originally scheduled shoot, She (Mother Nature, that is) hit us with a snow and rainstorm that not only provided us with the beautiful images above but also caused us to end the shoot early and schedule a follow-up session.
A session that fell on a day with warmer temperatures, no snow, plenty of sunshine and, yes, a moderate amount of wind!
The contrast is remarkable, yet gorgeous!
I couldn’t get enough of this gorgeous location! No wonder it’s a favorite spot for these two!
This little Pier was so much fun! We might have stayed a little longer if the wind didn’t practically blow us off!
What New England shoot isn’t complete without a view of the Boston Skyline! I’m in love with these silhouettes!
As we ended the shoot, we ventured back to Angela and Robbie gorgeous seaside neighborhood! The day would have been incomplete without a family photo.
Say hello to Gia!
Clearly this little angel is Angela and Robbie’s pride and joy! Isn’t she lovely?!?!
Angela & Robbie -
You are a true joy to be around! Thank you for the honor of being a witness to your love, friendship and the start of a wonderful life together!
Congratulations to you both!
Over the past century, every child born into the fabric of the New England cloth has found themselves on one side of an epic rivalry – Red Sox vs.Yankees! Theirs is a legend born of blood, sweat, tears, heartache and eventual joy. A journey brought forth by the loss of an icon. A story of a curse and the gallant battle of strength, perseverance, faith and love that brings the burden of a nation crashing to its knees.
For most, the love and passion for the Red Sox is not just a birthright, it’s a blood right!
You are born with the fever!
It is rare to find a true-blood New Englander that is a Yankees fan but, in truth, they exist! (I’m clearly a Red Sox fan!)
Kerri-Anne & Steve put this rivalry to the ultimate test! Kerri-Anne is the stalwart Yankee fan while Steve epitomizes the heart of Red Sox nation! This couple rocks out the team opposition with a fiery passion that mirrors the heat and energy of their relationship.
They are a playful duo of the rough and tumble persuasion, with an outrageous sense of humor!
While the baseball season may cause division, it’s great to know that when it comes to football,
these two are one in their love of the Patriots and Randy Moss!
Our day started out at a very sentimental location for Kerri-Anne as she grew up visiting the Point Judith Lighthouse (Narragansett Bay) as a child. The wind was fierce, as a storm was closing in, but we took advantage of what we could before the rain.
…And rain it did! We were drenched!! Before we broke to change into dry clothes I was able to snap a few really great images
with the umbrellas I keep in my “in case of emergencies” toolbox!
One of the best things about Summer storms… they make for great sunsets with dramatic skies and beautiful lighting! There’s nothing quite like a dramatic storm on the water, unless of course you have a fantastic couple eager to be splashing around and playing in it!
Thank you for being such great sports on a less than perfect day, especially Gabby for helping out and joining us for the post-rainstorm pictures! A very special thank you to Kerri’s Mom, Donna, and Cousin, Katelyn for being there to help out wherever necessary!
You were wonderful!
I had a blast working and laughing with you both! Ocotber is going to be here before you know it! Congratulations!
