Erica and Dan’s Boston engagement session played like a whirlwind tour of Boston. Starting at Fenway Park and ending with their beloved dog Mattie at Jamaica Pond, it was an incredible day spent soaking up much of what Boston has to offer!
We first met Erica and Dan a few years ago when Erica was in Liz and Harry’s infamous wedding. Erica was one of the bridesmaids stuck in the elevator with all of bridal party, the rabbi and us moments before Liz was to walk down the aisle. Needless to say, after snapping quite a few photos to memorialize the moment, we all bonded very quickly.
We were very excited when Erica and Dan reached out to ask if we would be interested in photoing their engagement and wedding, offering us the chance to spend yet another wedding with this truly wonderful couple.
Erica and Dan chose to begin their engagement session with photos outside of Fenway Park. Not only is Erica a Red Sox fan, but the team actually plays an important role in how they met! Dan, a Yankees fan, struck up a conversation with Erica after a Red Sox game during the 2013 World Series. Though they may have disagreed on the outcome of the game, they managed to put their team rivalries to the side…but only a little. Dan did come to Fenway wearing a Yankees t-shirt, which was pretty brave given that there was a game the day of their engagement session!
After Fenway Park we visited the Make Way for Ducklings statue at Boston Common, which were all wearing their Easter bonnets!
Our tour of Boston led us to the historic Beacon Hill area, which is known for their beautiful Federal-style row houses with gorgeous window boxes filled with flowers and quaint brick sidewalks. This area is so beautiful and is a mandatory stop for any Boston engagement session!
Our last stop downtown was the Boston Harbor to get a few photos of the happy couple with the skyline in the background.
We love it when couples want to include their pets in their engagement session, so we headed over to Jamaica Pond to get some shots of Erica, Dan and their spunky little pup, Mattie. She was clearly excited to be included in the engagement photos and helped us get some pretty energetic and entertaining photos!
We had such a great afternoon with Erica, Dan and Mattie and we are so excited for their Boston wedding in September! Now if we can just convince them to let Mattie be the flower girl…
