Gard & Martha’s Duxbury Engagement Photos

November 4, 2010

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 πŸ™‚

Love πŸ™‚

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

They each had their own pumpkin….Gog is a nickname πŸ™‚

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

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 πŸ™‚
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 πŸ™
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 πŸ™‚

COME ON – I love these πŸ™‚

One more before we headed home!

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