If I asked you and your partner to write down the specific location where one of your first special dates occurred, do you think your answers would match? I’m talking about the date when you just knew that you’d found your match…maybe when you started to have an inkling that this person with the twinkly eyes would be the one to grab onto.
For Moira & James, Georges Island in the Boston Harbor Islands was that special spot. I love going with my wedding couples to places that have significance to them, and I was fortunate enough to have a husband willing to watch the kids just a little bit longer on a wedding weekend so I could tack on an engagement shoot or what I like to call an Adventure Together Portrait Session for them one Sunday morning. And what an adventure it was! We journeyed by car, the T, and then a ferry out to Georges Island, getting to know each other along the way and sharing stories about mutual interests like Wellesley College where Moira and I graduated from and Charley Harper, a favorite artist of mine with ties to James’ hometown in Ohio. I got to hear about the plane that flew right over them on their date, and like I had planned it, we were treated to a plane leaving Logan Airport as well!
Georges Island has incredible views, secretive-feeling trails, and moody tunnels that made this photographer wish she could have spent hours exploring all of the fort’s nooks. I was literally shooting up until the moment I turned and sprinted to catch my ferry back, shouting over my shoulder that I couldn’t wait to see them in October for their wedding which you can see here!
