• Welcome to the website of wedding photographer Saavedra Photography My mission is to empower people through photography to love themselves and confidently see the beauty that I see in them.

Jen and Joel, Engaged! | Boston engagement photographer

They were in town for 2 days to get their marriage license. I missed them when I went to SF. This time we were going to make it happen, even if it snowed a little – after all, snowy flakes are pretty! I’m so glad I got to create these photos for this super-adorable couple, who will be wed in May. I’d met Jen first and we immediately clicked when we found out that we both love having short hair. This was my first time meeting Joel, who is a little shy, but clearly very in love with Jen and has his own sense of humor. Our engagement session was very short (around 40 minutes) so that I could get them off to the airport, but once we got going it was as if I wasn’t there at all. Thank you two for spending whatever precious time you had in Boston with me!

You can see a little snow in this one!

I asked them to wear bright accessories because it was going to be cold. Joel mentioned he brought a silly hat. Silly? Of course we had to photograph it!

Hugs are beautiful

Super-looking forward to their wedding, which will be coordinated by Pink Orchid Weddings!

Jen The pics came out super cute and we can’t wait to order some to put up in our new home. We both think you’re amazing and we can’t wait for you to photograph (and hang out with us at) our wedding.
