It was a very cold day but that was not why I was happy to be in the warm Athenaeum in Boston. I was thrilled to be there photographing Samantha and Brian’s engagement session, who dressed to the nines beautifully complimented the rich interior of the Athenaeum. As a librarian on Cape Ann, the location was perfectly chosen by Samantha to capture them and their love. The glamorous location felt like a teaser for their upcoming wedding this year at the elegant Castle Hill in Ipswich. A special thanks to Deborah at the Athenaeum for showing us all the best corners.

The weather was starting to get warmer, and Rachel and Mark and myself decided it was finally time to visit the beautiful Castle Hill on Crane Estate in Essex, MA to document their engagement with some special portraits of the two of them. In the early morning of a Monday we had the place just for ourselves. I personally love Castle Hill anyway, but I feel it was such a good location for Rachel and Mark. I had come to know that they are far more interested in the humanities and how life works, than in spending lots of time online or social media. Crane Estate, with its vastness and old building construction, wonderfully reflects and accommodates this. And as our engagement session went on, they were able to express their love for each other more and more in front of the camera while they were discovering the beauty and new renovations of this classic venue. Additionally, Rachel had expressed her concern for not being photogenic during our first consulation meeting for their wedding, but I have to say I cannot confirm this whatsoever! Find out for yourself in the images below. Click here to see the video slideshow of their highlights. Enjoy!
Leanne and Dave's job has to do with modern machinery. For their wedding at the stunning Castle Hill at Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA, they wanted to travel back in time a bit though. The venue is an example of classic beauty and surely helps accomplishing this. Leanne and her bridesmaids got ready at the Double Tree Hotel in Danvers, MA first and then made their way in a limo over to Castle Hill. The rain set in just when the ceremony was taking place on the amazing big lawn of the Crane Estate, but it was only afterwards when everybody needed to seek shelter inside. Leanne and Dave are great, authentic people that know how to celebrate and dance! Check out Leanne's hairdo (it's out of this world!) and her equally gorgeous dress.
