I met Jen at her best friend Jackie’s wedding a year ago. Little did I know that her fiance Cam had proposed just two weeks prior, and you may remember reading about that last summer (check out Jackie’s wedding post here!). Jen was the Maid of Honor, and was extremely helpful to me! Getting to know Jen throughout the wedding day was a blast, and ever more so when we reached the dance floor. Jen and Cam were living it up! Just a few short months later she had reached out to me to see if I was available for her wedding date, and I literally jumped out of my seat! I was so excited! I knew that I would love being a part of this couple’s wedding day, so it was a perfect match.
We met up back in the fall so I could get to know them a little better, and I found out they met while attending UMass Amherst. Jen is a Registered Nurse at Beth Deaconess Medical Center and Cam is a Paramedic. They have a tough schedule! With that in mind, we decided to wait to take their engagement pictures until the spring time. Mother Nature got in our way at the beginning of May so we decided to hold off until Memorial Day weekend. As we talked about possible locations for the shoot, Jen told me that she grew up going to Priscilla Beach down in Plymouth, MA and wanted to go there. As a beach goer myself I knew exactly what she was talking about and what it meant to her. She mentioned that she wanted to work with the tide schedule and try to get pictures at low tide, giving us more beach and sand to work with. The stars aligned and it was an amazing evening on the beach with Jen and Cam at Priscilla Beach in Plymouth, Mass! It might have taken some time, but that wait was COMPLETELY WORTH IT! This is a dream engagement shoot for me and one of my business goals! Check that one off the list!!!
Jen and Cam I cannot wait for your wedding in September at the Duxbury Bay Maritime School in Duxbury, MA, it can’t come soon enough. Enjoy some of my favorites from your engagement shoot!
