Last weekend I got to photograph this amazing couple at Sholan Farms in Leominster, MA.
Whitney is one of my cousins’ best friends (and my grandmother's favorite of all the cousin's friends...he frequently serenades her to Frank Sinatra songs), so I’ve known him for years. He is hilarious, so I knew the shoot would be a ton of fun. His fiancé Kayla wanted a Christmasy vibe for their shoot and the farm hit the nail on the head. I was so happy that the snow was still left on the trees.
I loved watching the two of them interact. They were all laughs and smiles despite the freezing temps.
Sholan Farms wound up being the perfect backdrop for this shoot. They were so kind when I called asking if I could shoot there. Not old did they have a lot of Christmas trees to buy, they also had a huge area of apple trees.
Whit has dabbled in stand-up comedy, so I knew he would excel at the "whisper something funny in her ear" prompt. I couldn't hear a word he said, but they were both cracking up almost instantly.
I've started incorporating fairy lights into my bag of tricks. They wound up being the perfect addition to Kayla's beautiful ring.
Kayla requested they do a piggy-back shot and I'm so glad she did! I absolutely love this image and I'll probably incorporating this into future shoots.
