Ainsley & Scott: A Hopkinton High School Engagement Session

Last night I met up with Ainsley and Scott in their hometown of Hopkinton, MA. But, we went one step further and took a trip “back to the future” and returned to their high school where they first met and started dating. It would have been cool to drive a Delorean there since it’s a bit of a hike for me to Hopkinton, but I’ll just hold onto that dream for now. Fall colors were popping as we wandered around their old stomping grounds. We spent most of the time laughing and smiling, which makes for my favorite type of shoot. Scott played football at Hopkinton, and the home town pride is still coursing through him. Once practices were finished we headed out to the field for some images, which are among my favorites. Any time you can utilize a location that is especially meaningful to the couple is a good day out. I was going for a little Friday night lights drama in the portraits, and I think we succeeded. We then went into the school for a few back-to-school shots before heading into town, where we finished at the start to the Boston Marathon. It was a great session, and I can’t wait for their wedding next May! Here are a few of my favorites…
