Gabby and David share a passion for life. They met in college, dated for two years, and got engaged in the fall of 2018! This year has been full for the two of them, working towards graduation and planning a wedding together. We have met up multiple times to talk about wedding timelines and photography, but we finally made it to spring when we could shoot their engagement photos! It was the perfect spring evening, and these two did a wonderful job getting each other to laugh and smile. :)

As much as I love styled engagement sessions, there’s something perfect about just wandering downtown, hand in hand, and sharing life. That’s so REAL! And that’s just what Gabby, David, and I did. We found some alleys out of the crazy spring wind. Explored spots that could have been someone’s garage…we’ll never know for sure. And ended our evening out by the lake, with dog walkers and fishermen alike. Such a simple way to celebrate love and spring and life!

I can’t wait for August— Davide and Gabby will celebrate their vows at the lovely wedding venue in Cambridge, The Chateau. It’s going to be a WONDERFUL day, fully of sunshine and friends and laughter. But for now, enjoy their engagement photos. Wedding bells will be here before we know it!

If you want photos like the following, make sure you find fields that haven’t been mowed down yet or haven’t bloomed. April was perfect for those white field tones! Also, that golden hour light did NOT hurt. ;)
