Bethany and Jake are real-deal Canadians…into hockey, good beer, and they are fearless when it comes to getting’ stuff done in sub-zero temperatures! We met up in their hometown outside of Toronto to shoot their engagement photos at a Christmas tree farm that is important to Jake. I absolutely love it when couples incorporate places that are special to them and very separate from their wedding when it comes to engagement sessions…it’s such a great way to tell more of your story and reflect some of the other facets of your life! Knowing that their wedding will take place in coastal Maine, it was so cool to capture some of home for these guys! And, not to brag or anything, but it was -22 degrees for most of the shoot (it got even colder at the end!) and these guys rocked it without complaint. Yeah, dog.

Speaking of dogs (how do like that segue!?)…in case I hadn’t already been convinced of their awesome-ness factor, Bethany and Jake are crazy in love with their fur-babies! You know I’m a sucker for dogs and the people who love them, and these guys totally fit that bill!! I can’t wait to see the fluff balls all dressed up for the wedding next year! Love love love.

Now…onto the good stuff! Bethany and Jake, y’all!

Don’t forget…while I am not posting very often over here on Cuppa anymore, there is a lot happening over at Cindy Giovagnoli and on the blog there…stop over for a visit to see some recent work from El Salvador and Belize and look for more adventures from around the world and close to home coming soon!

I recently met up with Sarah and Patrick for their engagement session outside of Boston! We had such a great time wandering around Middlesex Fells Reservation with it’s plethora of trails and gorgeous lake! Sarah and Patrick were totally game and really good sports about me dragging them around the woods! Totally worth the hike in my opinion…but check out their awesome session for yourself and let me know if you agree!

I met up with Sarah and Joel recently and we had a ball wandering about Boston with their dog, Billie! A perfect fall day, I had such a great time getting to know these two huge-hearted people and to witness their clear devotion firsthand! Without further ado…Sarah & Joel!!

Thanks so much, Sarah & Joel! You guys are awesome!!! Happy holidays!!

I met Tera for the first time when she was a bridesmaid in Morgan and Joe’s wedding back in 2012! Her enthusiasm, kind heart, and amazing sense of style made her memorable and I was thrilled when she reached out to me about her own upcoming wedding! She and Bennett will be traveling from their home in San Francisco next summer to celebrate their wedding with friends and family overlooking the sea in Bar Harbor! We decided to squeeze in an engagement session while they were here doing some planning last month and I had such a fantastic time wandering about Mount Desert Island with these guys! Between their easy laughter and game-for-anything attitudes and the fact that, c’mon, they are just gorgeous together, I couldn’t have had a better time or be more excited for their big day next year!! Without further ado, a few favorites from their awesome session!!

Thank you so much, you guys!!!

Erika and Jimmy have known each other for a long time. Long enough to have once “dated” and “broken up” because their parents said they were too young to “date”! But all these years later, here they are…planning their wedding and building a life together! They traveled up from their home on the New Jersey coast to spend a little time on the one here in Maine and we had a ball wandering around the always darling Boothbay Harbor for their engagement session last month! Erika and Jimmy, y’all!
