Jen and Les: Couples shoot at Northeastern University and the Public Gardens in Boston, MA

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of photographing Jen and Les. They've been in Boston since their freshman year at Northeastern, and 6 years later, they're married and moving to California! They wanted to have pictures taken at a few of the places they loved in Boston to commemorate their time here together.

Jen and Les met at Freshman orientation in 2007 before their freshman year of college. They started dating shortly after and have been together ever since. They grew especially close during Thanksgiving breaks-- Les is from Canada and Jen's from CA, so they both stayed on campus during the holiday when most of their friends were gone. They've stuck together through the long distance years where Les was playing baseball, and look back on it with gladness, saying it makes them even more grateful for the time they have with each other now. Jen loves the way Les is always thinking about her happiness and the way they laugh together, and Les loves Jen's cooking ;)

They're both really looking forward to going to LA and "building their empire together" as Jen puts it. Les mentioned he's excited for them to start a family together. 

I had such a great time with Jen and Les, and it's so clear hanging out with them that they're great together. There's so much trust, respect, joy, and affection between them. Jen glows around Les, and he's always making her smile! I'm sad they're leaving Boston, but I know their future is bright on the West Coast. Thanks for a great evening, Jen and Les!

As we walked around Northeastern, we stopped in the alley where they had their first kiss.

Jen started getting emotional as it all hit her that they were really moving away from Boston this month. Les wiped away a tear or two and Jen started laughing, saying "he did it right this time! usually he tries to use his whole palm to wipe tears off" haha! Good job Les ;)

We started heading toward Newbury Street, where we'd take a few last photos before the light faded, and where they were having dinner together after we finished.

One last photo... taken on Newbury Street to end the night.
