A Glowy Engagement Session on Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester, Massachusetts

This blog is going to be massive.. but y’all. Just wait! You’ll see why!

Jackie and Tia are incredible. As soon as I exchanged just a few short messages with them on Instagram, I just knew working with them was going to be amazing!

They decided to have their engagement session at Wingaersheek Beach, which is just the most gorgeous beach location, and though rain threatened the only hour in the day we were supposed to meet, it held off and everything turned out SO glowy!! The sun had played with us, peeking out here and there, and then coming out in full force at the end and it was so magical.

We were some of the only beach goers, and we had the whole beach for ourselves for the most part. Tia and Jackie killed their in the most fabulous way!! When they showed me their dress choices at the start of the session I nearly died of excitement!!! So flowy, so cohesive and perfect!! Their natural chemistry is just beautiful, and having them in front of my camera was just effortless. Before I knew it an hour had flown by, and we had spent time in the tall grass, on the rocks, popping champagne and running in the water.

I literally could have kept them going all night long, but I have had a hard enough time narrowing down their gallery so it’s not so overwhelming but the truth is, there is still SO many choices!!!

I’m excited for their wedding next year, and can only picture how absolutely stunning it’s going to be. The two of them compliment one another in the best way and the fun I had on the beach taking some epic portraits will always be something I would do again in heartbeat!!!

Tia and Jackie… thank you for sharing your love with me and for letting me walk this journey with you. I feel so lucky, and can’t wait to see you again soon!!!
