Engagement photos at Boston Public Garden

Engagement photos at Boston Public Garden

Earlier this spring, Gina, Michael, and their two pups drove from Philadelphia, PA to Boston, MA to take some seriously enchanting engagement photos at the Boston Public Garden with me.

Gina, originally from Newport, RI, knew she wanted to take her and Michael’s engagement photos here in Boston. And while they were familiar with the city, they weren’t totally sure where a good spot to take them would be since they were bringing their pups Coco and Remus with them. I suggested we could take their engagement photos at the Boston Public Garden and they loved the idea. It’s an iconic Bostonian location and it would provide amble smells and potty spots for their dogs.

We met up on a relatively warm spring evening. Gina and Michael were overflowing with excitement and anticipation when they arrived. And Coco and Remus were excited about all of the treats that they knew were coming. We snapped a few family photos of the four of them to ease into their engagement session before we focused on just Gina and Michael.

The Boston Public Garden is one of my favorite engagement session locations because it offers a plethora of picture-perfect locations. And depending on the time of day, the garden can look totally different from day to day so no two session ever looks the same. On this day, Gina and Michael wandered hand in hand, pausing every now and then to sneak a quick kiss from each other, while they took in the tranquil scenery.

As their session drew to a close, Gina and Michael’s spirits beamed. We seized the opportunity to chase the golden hour light, which created a dreamy, ethereal glow for them. And of course, we had to sneak Coco and Remus into a few more shots.

Gina and Michael’s engagement session at the Boston Public Garden encapsulated the essence and power of their love. They’re such a sweet and caring couple and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding at the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, RI later this fall!

How do we even start to say thank you for all the work and effort you put into our wedding day?

- Josie and Scott

Lauren played such a meaningful role in our wedding, capturing the day in photos that we'll look back on for the rest of our lives. She kept Scott and me calm and sane - Lauren is a miracle worker! She put in 100% effort and gave us her very best, and that means so much to me. Seeing our photographs makes me so excited and so happy that Lauren was with us on this journey.

Lauren made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable!

- Amy and Luke

We just wanted to say thank you again so much for your amazing work. You were seriously incredible to work with and we loved the locations you suggested for both our engagement shoot and the spots in Stillwater. We were very worried about getting professional photos done since we had never done it before, but you made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable. Thank you!

Working with Lauren was easy breezy and FUN! She gave us our most treasured photos ever!


There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!

Lauren's enthusiasm and passion make the photo-taking process so fun – she made me feel like a star!

- Alisa AND Adam

Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!

Lauren was pivotal in making our wedding day perfect!

- Emma AND Erik

My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a  calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.

Not only is Lauren an amazing human being, but she is an awesome photographer!

- Haley AND Erick

I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
