Matt + Ariel

Gloucester, Massachusetts

When Matt and I first started talking about having us come back this spring to provide their wedding photography in Gloucester, we had no idea that we’d already crossed paths at a previous event. Matt hosts a radio show and had been at the Mayo Bowl, which was my first photo session here in the Boston area. As we talked during the engagement session I even found a photo with Matt in it and our minds were slightly blown that we’d be at the same event and already run into one another. With their wedding to take place in Gloucester, we opted for a Gloucester engagement photography session and put it in the books!

As we began to talk about doing an engagement session, the Cox Reservation came up and I sent over a photo that I had gotten of Rachel in the field and they were sold. Leave it the the weather to be cloudy the day of our session though, we made the best of it and threw on the flash to provide some light pops and Matt and Ariel were great as we experimented with the remote flash placements. We started off our Gloucester engagement photography session in the fields right off the path and then continued our way over to the water’s edge and the Clamshell Landing where we got some beautiful pictures of them standing, dancing and sitting on the beach near the Essex River.


We wrapped up our Gloucester engagement photography session together in the dark and we played with some more back lit shots to give them some fun rim lit silhouetted shots. We made our way back to our cars and talked about our plans coming up – I was slightly jealous as I had to go work more and they were off to pick out a Christmas tree.


The Gloucester area is so beautiful during both off and on seasons and we’d love to come back and do another Gloucester engagement photography session. We’re already booked to come back for several weddings this coming 2018 summer and we’d love to keep coming back for more in this beautiful area.
