Back in December I teamed up with The Newport Bride during their 12 Days of Giveaways. Anna was the lucky winner of my engagement session giveaway and I was so excited to meet her last week! Also included in this giveaway, was a make up session with the very talented Alyssa McKenzie, so before we met up, Anna was pampered and showed up looking gorgeous!
Anna is an au pair from Hungary and she met Jeremiah while living here in the US. These two were a blast to work with and could seriously be models! Jeremiah was born and raised in Salem, and he and Anna spend a lot of weekends there together. For our session they decided to show me around the quaint downtown area of historic Salem, Massachusetts. We walked along the cobblestone streets, lined with old brick buildings, and popped into some places along the way.
First we checked out Salem’s newest boutique hotel, The Hotel Salem, and they were kind enough to let us get some shots in the lobby and on their marble staircase. The hotel has this swanky retro vibe that was a lot of fun and Anna and Jeremiah played the part! If you’re visiting Salem, definitely check this place out and consider a stay!
We strolled along the streets some more, finding alleyways with bistro lights (so cute!), but it was getting cold! We stopped in the Red Line Cafe to warm up with some coffee. Anna and Jeremiah cozied up in some window seats and told me about their proposal story. They just got engaged this past December and poor Anna had been sick that day! Luckily Jeremiah had the sweetest proposal planned to make her feel better. He took her to see some houses with the best Christmas light displays and he showed her a video he had made all about the reasons why he loved her! Congratulations, Anna and Jeremiah!
Recently engaged? Congratulations! ATP is still booking summer and fall 2018 weddings! I’d love to hear your story!
