Jennifer and Peter were a local couple looking for a more urban environment for their engagement portraits. So when I suggested downtown Worcester, this brave Clark University Alum and her soon to be husband were completely on board…and I did a little fist pump inside.
Worcester is one of my favorite places to shoot…and not just because I can drive there in 15 minutes! But because it combines the old New England charm of an industrial MA city, with all sorts of hidden alleys and textures, and signs of a bygone era. Jennifer and Peter proved willing adventurers…meeting me at Union Station, and quickly moving on to fine the little sections of the city that would provide a unique backdrop to their love. Of course we stopped in front of the classic Heywood Furniture heart, but from there we ducked down a pretty seedy alley, and found so much photographic goodness! They danced for the revolution, climbed up and down pikes of rubble and old loading docks, and even had a spin in front of a giant bull. Across the street we found more old warehouses, and a little patch straight out of a post apocalyptic movie where nature had reclaimed a small party of the city. Through it all stalwart couple kept each other warm, and laughing, and dancing!
