Maria + Matt

A Golden Fall Time Engagement Session at Endicott Park in Danvers, Massachusetts

I am in LOVE with these two and their sweet pupper, Gracie! Matt and Maria are so laid back and go with the flow, and with the light the way it was at Endicott Park on literally the most gorgeous fall evening… I could have spent HOURS there taking portraits of them!!

I love going to new locations, especially when they hold some sentimental value to my couples! Endicott is a place they frequent often, and I can totally understand why. It’s absolutely gorgeous and it’s so funny because right as we started portraits, so many other photographers started their sessions too!! I joked and mentioned they should post a sign on that one path that says “Photographer’s Row” ?

It literally could not have been a more perfect session. What killed me is that Maria sent me a text before the session and said Matt was super pumped for their session, which was already a MAJOR win because let’s be honest — how many guys can raise their hands and say they are genuinely excited to have their photos taken for at least an hour?! NOT ONLY THAT, but he followed the outfit recommendations I sent and totally followed my tips!

Let’s just say…. I was impressed!!!

They brought their sweet pup Gracie who was just an absolute doll, and I am dying over how cute she looked in all her photos!! Gracie is a lowkey daddy’s girl, and it was so sweet watching the both of them love up on their sweet girl.

Maria is just absolutely stunning, and the way she looked at Matt throughout their portraits just had my heart melted. The two of them are so incredibly fun, and I am SO looking forward to their wedding next December, and meeting their parents who more or less set these two up on a blind date, making the rest absolute history! ?
