• 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.

Joanne and Chris, Engaged! | Boston waterfront engagement photos

Pitter patter, pitter patter. I dialed Joanne on my phone. I knew she had traveled all the down from Maine, but the rain? It was a miserable day. Luckily for all of us, one week later, Joanne and Chris would be in Boston again to continue their vendor appointments. We got the softest, most gorgeous light for their waterfront engagement photos. Joanne and Chris are a laid back couple – and the session felt equally relaxed like catching up with friends (prior to this, we’d only met on video chat). Every now and then you’d see them burst out in laughter and having a good time, and so did I =)

We began our session at Fanueil Hall, which was a busy and happening place

Like me, Joanne’s fav flavor of ice cream is vanilla! Keeping it classy

Windswept hair: Check. I’m obsessed with her hair

Depending on the couple, sometimes I’m more directive with poses, and sometimes I’m not. Joanne and Chris somehow just *know* how to sit with one another.


I haven’t seen a lot of maxi dresses so far this season but I love the fact that they flow when you walk. I think I want one now too

Sun flaaaare… this was the picture I previewed on my Facebook fan page

I’ll be photographing their wedding later this summer at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln – if you know that sculpture park, you can see the playfulness and whimsy reflected right in their personalities. Can’t wait!

Also, this photo is too fun not to post. Amy had approached me for some photography advice and I ended up having her assist me on this shoot… granted, the assisting thing really isn’t all that glamorous, but she makes it look so cute!
