Devon & Levi

A Spring Engagement Session at Maudslay State Park in Newburyport, Massachusetts

I’ve been to Maudslay a few times for engagement sessions, but this was my first time going in the Spring time and let me tell you…. this location hits differently in ALL the best ways!!!

I got to Devon and Levi’s session a bit earlier because even though I may shoot at the same location, the sun is never in the same exact spot two days in a row, and the location is just vastly different from season to season. I found this one section of Maudslay that I never really got to explore before and we found it at JUST the right time of the season!!! Some trees still had those white blooms on them, the grass in the field was uncut and the sun was EXTRA warm and glowy for their session so as you can imagine, I was in heaven!!

Let’s just say I am obsessed with Devon’s dress!!! She looked stunning and Levi’s outfit combo matched perfectly. It was the recipe for a bright, spring session and I am just thrilled with how everything came together so perfectly.

It’s crazy to think that in two months time I will be emailing these two again to start securing wedding details, and how fast the rest of the summer is going to go by!!! I had the absolute pleasure of having Levi’s best friend, Eric, join us for some fun and at the end, Levi and Devon popped not one… but TWO bottles of champagne and it was the perfect way to top off an incredible session!!!

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as hard as I did during this session before. At least not in a long time! I’m talking about full on laughs the whole time. They both have insanely outgoing personalities so it felt like I was able to be right at home with them!

Levi and Devon… THANK YOU for trusting me with this location for allowing me to take these portraits for you!!! I can’t wait to see you at the wedding in just a few months 😍 Enjoy some top favs from your gallery 🙂
