Bobby and Sarah Engagement Session | Harvard Arboretum

This past month I have had 2 engagement sessions at the same location in Boston!  Both couples chose to have their engagement shoot at the Harvard Arboretum… and guess what?? These sessions look nothing alike! The Harvard Arboretum is so big, each session I have had here have all been in different areas! I don’t know about you but I am lovingggggg all of these engagement sessions I have been having this year!

This engagement session is so special because it’s been a long time coming for these two! They have been dating for 9 years and are planning their 2021 wedding. Bobby proposed on their vacation trip to Aruba. Bobby and Sarah were walking at sunset along the beach on our way to meet his family for a dinner reservation on the other side of the island when he asked if Sarah if they should take a photo at the end of the pier – a few short minutes later he dropped down to a knee and asked! Sarah said her first words were “What are you doing?” – followed by a shell-shocked yes and an even longer embrace in which her usual non-stop chattering self was speechless.  Want to know something funny?? When PJ asked me to marry him, my first words were also ” What are you doing?!” So when Sarah told me this story in our first emails back and fourth, I knew I could not wait to meet them!

These two have such a fun personality! They were so friendly and kind. I loved my time with them so much! It may have been a little humid, and a little hot and sticky, but you would never know in these images! You also can’t tell that we walked up a really steep hill to get some amazing shots in tall grass and while we ( I ) was out of breath shooting, these two photogenic people were all for it and did not complain once! I knew that walking that hill was so worth it!   As you scroll through these images you’ll fall in love with their smiles and the way they look at one another! I cannot WAIT for their wedding day!

Bobby and Sarah, thank you for letting me take you all around and up the hills at the Harvard Arboretum! You are so much fun to spend time with, and I honestly think I could have stayed and talked with you all night!!! I still can not believe that you had an amazing glowy sun set and once our session was over, as I turned my car on to head back home, it rained the whole way!  Enjoy my favorites and get excited to see your full gallery soon!
