Andrea and Nathaniel, Engaged! | MIT Engagement Photography

In planning this engagement session, Andrea and Nathaniel told me that they did not have many photos of themselves together. Whenever they traveled, they’d often take photos of each other but few together. This is exactly why I really emphasize engagement photos for a couple – it’s also a great way to get some casual photos together that you normally would not be able to do yourself, and if you’re not used to having photos together, then it’s even more important to see what it feels like prior to the big day. We chose MIT – one of my favorite campuses to photograph – as that’s where Shawn went for grad school. (I was introduced to these two through another MIT couple, Karen and Bryan)

This is a really cool new structure somewhere inside the halls of MIT. It looks like paper but I think is made out of some kind of metal. Can anyone tell me more about this?

We took these engagement photos while spring was in full bloom in Boston, who knew all these beautiful flowers would be everywhere! I prefer shooting near large flower bushes as opposed to flower gardens because they are tall enough to match the people.

They were nervous, but also a super playful couple who are quite at ease with each other.
