Vintage Film Portrait Friday: Merri & Alan’s engagement portraits… Merri is one of my good friends, a kindred spirit, and is lucky enough to find a wonderful man who adores her. Alan is the kindest and most generous person, so I’m very very happy to see them building a life together.
Merri and I met in 2008 when she was a bridesmaid at a wedding in the Thousand Islands. We have bonded over our super healthy / nerdy eating habits and a love for our friends. She looks like such a bad-ass in this photo, it doesn’t show how giving and warm she is. Ironic. This is a woman who loves to pamper and take care of others. I adore her. She is one of the few people I relinquish control to.
Since everyone is traveling to Boston for their small offbeat wedding, we decided that the engagement photos would act as a treasure map. You see, they are getting married in a vintage 1920’s speak easy and theatre right in the heart of Davis Square, Boston. So, we started at the T station:
Then walked over to the very busy intersection of Davis Square:
I am so very honored to be their wedding photographer next year and it is really fun to help them plan their wedding. It is another great excuse to visit Boston, where I have so many friends.
Fun fact: when I visited Boston in February, I took this film photo of Merri, Alan and their dogs and called it an Engagement Photo on my website…. foreshadowing the very near actual proposal!
