Spending an afternoon with Brittany + Matt at their Harkness Park engagement photo session was like spending an afternoon with old friends. I had only met Brittany a couple of months ago at a walkthrough where they will be having their wedding, Farmhouse by the Sea, but just a couple minutes into their session and we were already laughing and having a great time. I actually do know Matt from our high school days, but probably haven't seen him since. It was like not a day had gone by, just now he just has this super awesome, gorgeous fiancé with by his side ;) Brittany's creative side came out and she had the idea of doing a picnic for their photos, which I loved and was just perfect for them. It totally showcased how they can just hang out and have an awesome time together no matter what they are doing, they simply enjoy being with one another. While we were picnicking there was a surprise proposal going on next to us and a wedding behind. It was like love was just everywhere we turned!
Matt and Brit have been together since 2007. They are adventurous, and enjoy anything if they are doing it together. From climbing Mt. Washington in some extremely harsh conditions, to just aimlessly hanging out in NYC, or walking on the beach they truly are best friends and enjoy each other's company. Matt proposed about a year and a half ago while they were in New York City, on the day they were leaving for Australia. They both agree that trip to Australia was the best trip, and gift they have ever been given. (Like a honeymoon for your engagement?! Genius Matt, good job ;) )
At one point, we came across a lot of those dried up dandelions that when you blow on them, they scatter everywhere. I suggested we use them in the photos and Brittany loved the idea, she calls them "wishes" and I think that is the most adorable thing ever. Because "dried up dandelions" just doesn't sound quite as good. You can see that clearly we had a good time with these ones. Well Brit and I did, Matt got a lot of "wishes" blown into his face hahaha.
Brittany + Matt had some gorgeous moments at their Harkness Park engagement session, and these are a few of my favorites! Cheers guys, thanks for being so fun and including me in this incredibly special time!
