Melissa Rabbitt

Charles River Esplanade

“The Esplanade is one of my favorite Downtown locations for an outdoor photo session in Boston! I love how much variety there is without having to walk far. There’s the Charles River, docks, boats, bridges, greenery, etc. I especially love going early in the morning when it’s quiet. If you’re looking for even more variety for your photo session, the Public Garden and the Beacon Hill area are just a short walk away!”  

Gina Brocker

Fan Pier Park

“My goal as a Boston engagement photographer is to capture images that will spark memories of what this special time in your life, not memories of that time you didn’t know what to do with your hands. If the seaport is a significant spot for you, heading over to Fan Pier for some intimate photographs as the sun sets never disappoints. There are a few spots you can sneak away if there are crowds and still avail of the epic view and light this location offers.”
