Gard & Martha’s Duxbury Engagement Photos

I met up with Gard & Martha in Duxbury, MA last week. I had only been to Duxbury once before (for Jeremy & Megan’s e-shoot) so it was fun to be back and see it in a different season! Gard’s parents live right near the water so we started at their property and went from there.

The beautiful marsh background was just the place to get started 🙂

Love 🙂

Gard’s parent’s two labs followed us around and provided comic relief by getting the whizzies and speeding dangerously close to us 🙂

They each had their own pumpkin….Gog is a nickname 🙂

A quick change and we headed down to the water – love these two (the pictures and the couple!) 🙂

And then…..we went out on the water (cue my happy dance)

Martha had told me that Gard is an oysterman and a recreational lobsterman and maybe during our shoot we could go out on his boat?
Um….yes please 🙂
It was fun to see Gard in his element and I learned a ton of interesting facts about oystering and lobstering…always cool.

Gard checked on a few of his traps and had had success!

Now here’s where I admit that I am a wuss.

Gard and Martha generously offered to send me home with a few lobsters for dinner but I said no 🙁
Cooking lobsters (and thinking about them hanging out in the car with me on the ride home) gave me the heeby jeebies. Don’t get me wrong – I love me some lobsters but I thanked them and said I’d stick to restaurant lobsters!
Yep – I’m a total wuss.

Martha trusted my crazy idea and took off her ring 🙂

COME ON – I love these 🙂

One more before we headed home!

Martha & Gard are getting married next August in New Hampshire – I can’t wait!
