Dorothy + Kevin – Boston, MA Engagement Session Photos

October 17th, 2008

Dorothy lived in Boston and Kevin lives in South Carolina. They met on a cruise. Dorothy’s sister encouraged her to talk to him. Sparks flew and they kept in touch. Kevin made multiple trips to Boston and Dorothy visited him in North Carolina. Now they are engaged, and they continue to travel back and forth to see each other. How romantic!

Erik and I were so happy to take a trip to Boston to meet Dorothy and Kevin. We knew it would be hard to find a time when we were all available, but this long weekend Kevin and his parents were visiting Kevin’s soon to be in-laws. It was perfect! We couldn’t have asked for a more magical day! Not to mention I love Boston – and this was Erik’s first time is this beautiful city, having lived most of his life in California.

We met up with Dorothy and Kevin at the Boston Common. This was my first time meeting Kevin as well, and as soon as I saw them together, all I could think was “wow!” They are one ‘magnetic’ couple – some people just belong together.

We started off by these willow trees. Have I ever mentioned how much I love willow trees??

The weather was so amazing – I love the ducks in this one.

We found this fun lightpost

Did I mention how insanely gorgeous they are??

LOVE the sun rays…

So handsome!

I love how they look at each other.

This girl should be on a runway!

On the bridge…

The fall leaves

We liked this yellow tree

Then we headed to Carson Beach in Southie! This was where they had their first kiss ; )
Erik and I are both very physical when we shoot, and we will do practically anything to get the shot. This is nothing new, but I say this because halfway during our time on the beach Erik flicked his hand and his wedding band flew off. We searched for a good 20 minutes (Dorothy & Kevin you both are saints!) and no luck finding it. As Erik said – someone who needs it more than us will find it and have a very happy day! We felt bad because Dorothy and Kevin were more concerned than we were – we were certainly bummed for a minute, but once we realized it was lost we didn’t want to lose the good light too!!! We had some seriously SICK light! Have a look.

One of my favs:

Dorothy and Kevin are just natural posers. They just sort of fell into this one and it made me a little emotional to see because it reminds me of a picture I have of my grandparents on their honeymoon. I will have to post it sometime. They are seriously just too stinkin’ cute!

LOVE this one too!

I just had to post this one. I asked them if they felt up to running a bit. Dorothy was like “Seriously?” and off they ran. I think Dorothy may be a bit on the competitive side ; ) This just cracks me up!

I love sunset so much – and I really love how when you turn 180 degrees you can get an entirely different feel to an image. Dorothy loves the purple sky! I love the moon, and soft light….

Dorothy & Kevin we had an amazing time with you both!! Thank you so much for spending the afternoon with us and giving us a taste of Boston and of course, Southie! And thank you for helping us look for Erik’s lost wedding band. We are looking forward to your wedding next year!

Vicki (& Erik)

P.S. Yellow Car! (This is a *fun* new game Kevin & Dorothy introduced us to).
