This photo of Laura and Kevin was taken during our engagement session at the Franklin Park Zoo. It was actually super crowded there, which you can’t tell from the photo, but we managed to squeeze in some cute pics while working our way around various class trips. In keeping with the animal theme, Laura even donned her bird t-shirt, which I thought was quite fitting. Can’t wait for their wedding in a few weeks at Upstairs on the Square in Cambridge.

Melissa, Aubrey and I did a super quick engagement session last week at Arlington Town Hall. It may sound strange to shoot in a town hall, but it actually resembles an old library, with gorgeous wood detailing, marble walls, and beautiful old windows. Can’t wait for their wedding in a short 3 1/2 weeks away.

One reason not to reschedule a shoot even if the weather looks iffy – you can get some totally unique situations, like the fog that Marco, Gina, and I had last week while photographing their engagement session in Larz Anderson Park in Brookline.

    Channing Johnson - These are awesome, Joyelle!

Being alums of Tufts, Maggie and Chris chose a nostalgic place for their ceremony, Tufts’ Goddard Chapel. We did their “first site” under the Bowden Gate, since it’s apart of Tufts folklore. (According to legend, couples who kiss under the Bowden Gate will eventually marry.) Then we headed back to Boston, battling marathon weekend traffic, to the Back Bay Sheraton, where a huge party ensued.

Flowers: Fino Fresh Floral Design

Band: Night Rhythm

Uplighting: RC Uplighting

Cake: Konditor Meister

Painting the cannon in front of the Goddard Chapel is a Tufts tradition. Maybe tradition isn’t even strong enough a word, it’s a Really Big Deal. So the bridal party surprised Maggie and Chris by having it painted for the ceremony.

This is for the Tufts alums – Go Jumbos!!
