Diana and Greg, Engaged! | Boston Engagement Photographer

What happens when you have thunderstorming clouds, hail, and crazy rain? You get Diana and Greg’s engagement session! This daring couple drove me out to this really cool rock climbing area out in Quincy (a former quarry) and just as we started getting set up the rain started. We ran back to the car to try to figure out our game plan when lo and behold, 10 minutes later, the rain cleared up and gave up really dramatic skies to complete the engagement photos. I guess the old adage about “if you don’t like the weather in New England, wait 5 minutes” is true!

Diana and Greg share a passion for rock climbing, so it would only be fitting that we chose this setting for their session. I thinking having clients be part of the creative brainstorming of any session is KEY – given that this session is for you, it’s important for me to incorporate your vision while providing my own professional guidance! Also, major major props to Diana for trooping it out in her flats on such soggy grounds while I was shootin’ in rainboots.

Thank you guys SO MUCH for being such troopers, I hope it was worth it!
Also, I designed an engagement guestbook for these two and when it arrives I can’t wait to show it to you all!

Emily Cool! I had no idea Quincy used to be a quarry! Now I understand why there are huge cliffs everywhere!

Shang @Emily Haha, I realized the order of my words were confusing! What I meant was that this particular rock climbing area used to be quarry, not that all of Quincy used to be a quarry!
