This session was SO much fun. I have a few stories to share about this couple and the day, but I’ll start with the romantic one.
We started off our session (a chilly but beautiful day in early November) at a special location in Pembroke, MA. When Caitlin and Steve met, neither was living in Pembroke, but discovered through casual conversation that they both had lived there growing up.
“Oh really, whereabouts?” I imagine Caitlin asking.
And it was then that they discovered that their families had lived in the same house in Pembroke at different times. ::cuethegoosebumps::
But wait! There’s more. Each with multiple siblings, Caitlin and Steve had both called the same bedroom their own! And now they’re engaged. That story gets me. Every. Time.
So we started with a few shots of these two in front of that house, where they both lived, at different times, without knowing that their new favorite person would be a part of that house, too.
After our stop in Pembroke, we headed to World’s End in Hingham, where lots of people were also taking in the beauty of the day.
As I was taking photos of Caitlin’s gorgeous engagement ring on the stem of a little pumpkin, a mom with a baby carriage and a little girl walked by.
“Why is she taking pictures of that pumpkin?” the little girl asked.
“I think she just asked that pumpkin to marry her,” the mom replied, smiling at me.
It was the best reply, ever.
