Keith and Erin didn’t know that when they attended a summer party at a friend’s place that it would turn into meeting the love of their life. Keith and Erin met at a party in town. Huge Patriots fans!
Keith proposed at a family gathering (when? Soon after they met, recently, etc). While some family members knew it was going to happen, Erin most certainly did not. I think it’s incredibly sweet when someone proposes in front of their family members.
We went to the beautiful Wayside Inn in Sudbury, MA. It was a quiet, not so busy day at the Wayside inn. If you are from the area, you know it can be extremely busy during the Fall when the leaves are changing on the property. We were really lucky to have a nice low-key or relaxingtime finding areas to photograph. Erin brought a variety of scarves to incorporate into their engagement shoot. Scarves are one of my favorite accessories!
I usually suggest always photographing early in the morning for the sunlight. Especially with a setting like the Wayside Inn‘s Grist Mill. The only way I can describe the lighting atthis charming venue is stunning, that’s the perfect word! It also tends to be less crowded if you arrive at any venue early in the day, which is certainly helpful. The Grist Mill is a gorgeous area to take photographs but can get really busy quickly with a lot of photographers.
Of course we had to incorporate our favorite team, The Patriots! That was definitely one of the highlights of the engagement shoot that we almost forgot about. Shame on us! So fun! Keith and Erin, I’m looking forward to your wedding next Fall! I know it’s going to be a ton of fun!
