Russell and Joel, Engaged! | Turner Hill and Crane Beach Engagement Photography

Photographing the engagement session for Russell and Joel was reminiscent of a lazy summer day trip. The two Boston-based lawyers met online and their first date was at one of my favorite restaurants in the South End – Aquitaine! Ever since, the two have been traveling and eating, and I’m so excited they will be my first 2012 wedding! They are getting married in January at the gorgeous Turner Hill Mansion. Given that it will be quite cold and leafless during their wedding, we wanted to take advantage of the current gorgeous summer weather to photograph at the grounds of Turner Hill!

Is it bright? Is it fun? I’m photographing it!

They are so sweet

We got into the following after we did some more traditional portraits looking up. Too sweet!

We had amazing, amazing weather and light this day. Everything was just golden

A drive later and we were at Crane Beach! On the way we saw so many beautiful houses and estates, Joel and Russell began dreaming of having a house here as well. Imagine how often you could go to the beach

Each of them picked and personalized their engagement ring


Thank you Amy Bao for assisting!
