I love beach engagement sessions and weddings. Some of my favorite Boston locations for engagement sessions are Castle Island and Carson Beach. It helps that I currently live within walking distance from Carson Beach, which makes it my extra favorite place to hang out and photograph awesome couples. Speaking of awesome couples, I got a chance to photograph Brice and Press’ engagement session. I don’t use the word “awesome” lightly. They were incredibly fun to photograph. Once they started getting used to my camera,
Castle Island Same-Sex Couple Engagement Session
We first met up at Castle Island for their engagement session. It was an incredible experience not just for Brice and Press, who were being photographed professionally for the first time, but it was also amazing to see how they opened up in front of my camera. Most couples felt tense at first when a camera was pointed at them, and most of the time, they progressively became more relaxed. It didn’t take much time for Brice and Press to get to that point. It really said a lot about a couple how comfortable they were around each other.
I’ll never get tired of carry-your-fiance-on-your-back photos. They’re so much fun and candid. I love getting these awesome expressions out of them.
Boston Carson Beach Gay Couple Engagement Session
We headed over to Carson Beach, which was next to Castle Island, for more photos. It was Brice and Press’ first time there and we were lucky enough to have great weather and it wasn’t too crowded, which was a huge advantage of doing the engagement session on a weekday. Brice and Press lived in Honolulu, Hawaii for many years so it made sense to do the engagement session on a beach.
They were so silly and I loved it. You know what they say… couples who are silly together stay together.
These photos of them walking on the boardwalk above look like they belong in a men’s fashion magazine.
I had an incredible time photographing Brice and Press’ engagement session at Castle Island and Carson Beach in Boston. If you’re engaged and looking for a photographer to capture your love with a fun and candid style, please get in touch. I’m happy to travel outside of Boston too.
