Boston Engagement Photography | Alex & Steve, Mass Ave- Back Bay

June 21, 2013

I’m obsessed with this session, so you’ll probably see a lot more of these guys!  Alex & Steve are the picture perfect couple and they were hitting poses like they were on fire.  Their outfits were perfectly coordinated, I LOVED their formal looks.  The texture on Alex’s dress was subtle but added lots of detail and dimension to the photos, and of course Steve looked super fresh in his plain white button up and crisp black suit.  These guys gave us the creative freedom to choose the locations for the session so we took them somewhere a little different than your typical “public garden e-sesh”  and even though we almost got arrested and run down by a guy in a golf cart for trespassing- I think it paid off!   These two are so adorable together, so much so that my cheeks hurt after editing their video because I couldnt stop smiling!   See for yourself!



Big thanks to Jeanel, who was my second shooter for this session while David rocked it solo on video.

Alex’s Hair was done by Marisa at Salon Capri Salon Capri ( in Newton.  Her killer heels are by Sam Edelman.
