NEPA Engagement: Sheri & PJ

A few months ago, as I was photographing Casey and Mike’s beautiful wedding in PA, I was in heaven. I adore their families so much so I nearly fell over with excitement when Sheri (Casey’s sister and bridesmaid) turned to me and said you might have another wedding in our family to photograph as she showed me her STUNNING engagement ring! Since then, I have had the pure joy in getting to know PJ and Sheri even more. We had the best time during their engagement session and now I can not wait till their wedding day to watch all their close family and friends witness their vows to each other!

 

Amy Emily PhotographyAmy Emily PhotographyAmy Emily PhotographyAmy Emily PhotographyAmy Emily PhotographyI asked Sheri how they got engaged she shared the most lovely story. PJ & Zachary (their son) set up the proposal together. Zachary really loves astronomy and one night he wanted to go outside and use his telescope. PJ went outside with him to set it up, and then Zachary ran in to get Sheri saying “come on mom! Quick! You can see the Apollo landing site!” So Sheri went outside and started looking through the telescope. She could not see what they were talking about, so she was getting slightly annoyed. After a few minutes, PJ kept saying, “Babe can’t you see that big rock right there? It’s right there!” As she looked up, he was holding the ring!!! She fell to the ground because she could not believe it! He got down on his knee and asked her to marry him. Did your heart just melt a little…cause mine did! LOVE THEM! Amy Emily PhotographyAmy Emily Photography

Castle Island Family Portraits

Castle Island is such a beautiful part of Boston! I have found myself there multiple times recently for portrait sessions and I could not be more pleased. This family session is near and dear to my heart because these two are related to me which may make my next comment a little biased but I think they might be the most adorable mom and daughter duo I have had the pleasure to photograph.  It has been really beautiful to see this mom and daughter bond deepen with time. As they stood in front of my camera, playing, laughing, and giggling, I was reminded about how extremely fragile life is.  I hope these images will always remind them of their precious bond.

Castle Island Boston Expectancy Photoshoot

There is something very special about getting to photograph maternity photos. I have completely fallen head over heels for these kind of session and can not wait to do more. I met Anabell and Jose a week before they moved to Boston in Scranton, PA. We both went to the same church there and I happened to be visiting right before their big move. I was so excited to hear of an amazing couple heading to my city that I went over and introduced myself. Anabell was so sweet and stylish and Jose was so kind. I knew right away I loved them together. Fast-forward some time and Anabell reached out to me because she was expecting. I could not be more happier for her and Jose. We decide to take their maternity photos near their home at Castle Island at sunset and it turned out absolutely perfect.

Hatch Memorial Shell Engagement Session: Shannon & Aaron

Shannon and Aaron are getting married next month and I am so excited!  Their engagement session was truly a beautiful evening. We walked around the Boston Gardens and the Hatch Memorial Shell for their images. Here are a few of my favorites…

The Boston Esplanade: Ariel Portraits

Goodbyes are terrible! There is no real way around them either which annoys me. I have learned a lot since moving to Boston but the hardest lesson I have learned while here is how to say goodbye. This beautiful city is so transient that you can count on at least 1/3 of your friend group changing over every year. This has been gut wrenching and at times, extremely discouraging. Yet with each change brings someone new. Some kind and beautiful soul, that I am baffled I did not know before.

It is my pure joy to introduce you to Ariel. Ariel and I worked together for a little bit this year. Every morning (starting at 5:45am) we would carpool to work and then spend the day talking and laughing. Planning events and crafting gifts for celebrations. She knew all along that she would be leaving come June but yet some how it feels like it sneaked up on me and possibly her. She’s all packed up now and settled into her new home in Israel. I am so proud of her for pursuing her dreams of becoming a rabbi.

With that being said, here are some of portraits of her along the Boston esplanade.

Brookline Coolidge Corner Engagement: Philip & Mayra

This is such a special blog post for me to write! Three years ago when I moved to Boston I was pretty much friendless. It took a few months for me to even get over the fact that I had to start over new and make NEW friends. That seemed so hard even for me. An extrovert! But God knew exactly who I needed to meet!

After three months of living in Boston, again pretty much friendless, I met Mayra. She would invited me to places and I’d say no. I’m not in the mood or my favorite …I really don’t feel like it. It was not long though before she wore me down (with the help of another good friend, B). That’s how it all started and now three years later, I’m going to be photographing her wedding this FRIDAY! (FRI-YAY anyone?!?)

To see her and Philip interact is one of the sweetest gifts! They have such a fun and kind relationship! They both adore each other and have so much respect for the other. I can not express my gratitude for you Mayra in words but you changed my life. Your example is one I have always seen as encouraging. Philip, you’ve surly found one of the rarest gems and I know you’re going to cherish her.Thank you for inviting me to document your love story! I’m so excited to be a small part of it! XOXO.

Beautiful NayAug Engagement: Mike & Casey

I am literally grinning from ear to ear as I write this blog post! Last year, after I photographed Matt and Melanie’s wedding, I went home and I was really sad. I felt like I had just made some dear friends and I didn’t know the next time I would have the privilege of spending time with them, their friends, and their family! Then to my complete surprise and JOY… Melanie’s brother, Mike proposed to his longtime girl friend, Casey last February. Casey reached out to me and I nearly freaked out with excitement. Not only are these two abosulety the most kind and sweet individuals, they actually met in middle school. They even dated on and off again since then! When they told me their engagement story, I swear my heart melted.

Beautiful Engagement Scranton PA0004Amy Emily Photography Beautiful Engagement Scranton PA0008Amy Emily PhotographyMike had bought Casey a lovely jewelry mirror for Christmas and took his time hanging it. One day, in February, Mike went to put it together. When Casey came down to see it, their then 3 month son was sitting next to it. When Casey opened it, there she saw her beautiful engagement ring – smack dab in the middle. Casey was in complete shock! I am so glad Mike could completely surprise her! As you can tell from Jordan’s face below – we are ALL pretty stoked about these two getting married!

We started the session at NayAug and then stopped by their middle school where they met. I wish I could say that is the most impressive thing about these two – but there’s so much more. From being amazing parents to just genuinely funny humans, they have these huge hearts full of love and I feel so lucky to have them as clients and friends.
