A certain ceremony is usually afoot when we photograph our clients at a church, but Jamie and Doug introduced us to the lovely grounds of the Old Stone Church in West Boylston for their engagement session this past August. (Apparently the building has been vacant since the 1890s, when the Wachusett Reservoir adjacent to the grounds was filled with water.) These two met in medical school in West Virginia, and moved to Massachusetts to start their life—not to mention their residencies—together. We all quickly connected over a love of the outdoors and traded notes on some of the finer points of camping gear. It’s always a delight to photograph a couple with such a zest for life and each other. We can hardly wait to join them for their wedding next summer!
