today’s love story:
Rachel + Zac’s Wingaersheek Engagement Session
and all the magical moments that made it
Once upon a time, a beautiful couple named Rachel and Zac arrived at their Wingaersheek Engagement Session in Gloucester, MA with a bottle of champagne and perfectly styled beach session attire.
I’m telling it like a fairy tale because that’s what it felt like! Wingaersheek Beach is across the harbor from Annisquuam where Melissa and Evan got married last year – see their beautiful oceanfront Yacht Club wedding here.
If you’re thinking of a Wingaersheek engagement session, know that it will be busy if its a nice warm day in the summer, even during the week. I honestly wouldn’t even imagine trying a session here on the weekend. For us, it was a hot day in July and even at the late hour (it was around 6pm), the beach was PACKED. We found some beautiful shade and a cute boy to hold a reflector (Cooper Ewing!) to put these two in perfect light and airy light away from the crowds and hot sun.
Their chemistry is undeniable and so adorable! They light up when they look at each other. I gave them little prompts along the way and they did the rest…and when the crowd cleared away from the rocks that run along the shore of Wingaersheek Beach, we took advantage and they headed out. There still may or may not have been ohhh five to seven people that I photoshopped out. The magic of digital photography!
And then, it was champagne time! Champagne is always a good decision for an engagement session…and remember, my classy friends, pinkies up!
UMM, her ring! Starry eyes over here…
Rachel & Zac, I’m so excited to be working with you. I am 100% creating “a guide to walking together during your engagement session” tutorial using your pictures. This session was magic and I am so excited to do it again at LaBelle Winery next year!
