COUPLES SESSION INFO & PRICING

BOOK ME FOR YOUR NORTH SHORE MASSACHUSETTS ENGAGEMENT SESSION

WHEN DO NORTH SHORE MA COUPLE SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?

Couple sessions (engagement, anniversary, or just because) can be booked at sunrise or sunset weekdays Monday-Thursday or sunrise weekend sessions (if I’m not out photographing a wedding). The prettiest light to photograph in always takes place within 2 hours after sunrise and within 2 hours of sunset to get the best pictures possible. That way you don’t have to squint with the sun, it won’t create deep shadows under your eyes, and it has the dreamiest golden light!

Top tip: To get beautiful backlit images of the sun rising over the ocean (think SoCal vibes) these locations are all best for SUNRISE so you don’t have to stare into the sun the whole time. Also most of these beaches are still very crowded at sunset during the summer tourist season.
