This Monday I met up with Jane and Chris to do their engagement shoot at the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain. I met Jane last fall when I shot her sister Ann’s wedding. Jane made me so happy when she contacted me to ask if I would photograph her wedding to Chris; they called me before they were even engaged! Their wedding is in August, in Woodstock Vermont, and I am so excited to be a part of it.
We had a gorgeous day at the Arboretum; everything is in fantastic bloom and the smells were unbelievable. Chris and Jane were both afraid they wouldn’t be able to relax in front of the camera, but I think they did just fine. A little pre-shoot champagne helped as well…
Janie has the most wonderful smile which is always on:
Chris makes her laugh, and they were so obviously having a great time with each other:
A few times I tried to let them wander off so I could spy on them. The Arboretum has all of these wonderful little pockets of warm light and solitude:
We also found some great spots to just hang out and enjoy the sunshine:
Chris was such a good sport:
Isn’t Janie’s skirt so cool?
Thank you, Janie and Chris, for such a fun afternoon. I am so looking forward to the big day in August!
