Vintage elegance.  This was the atmosphere Amy & Ryan were searching for as they chose the location of their engagement session.  The Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA was a natural choice and provided the perfect backdrop for this romantic session.

Once you take your first step onto the Crane Estate, you immediately feel the weight of its presence.  Garden after intricate garden, the immaculate rolling greens lead you to the crowning jewel, Castle Hill.

Completed in 1910, the grand estate sits on 2,100 acres and was originally built as a summer home for the Chicago Industrialist, Richard T. Crane, Jr.

Feeling as if we were walking through a scene from the Great Gatsby, Amy, Ryan & I explored the grounds of the Crane Estate.  Beautiful walkways, stone staircases and wrought iron gates were some of the many great details that added to the texture of our collection.

Checkmate!  While the life size chess pieces are a fun prop for our engagement session, this added touch by the Crane Estate is a great way to entertain guests.  

What an amazing afternoon!  Lucky to have perfect weather and the great company of Amy & Ryan, it was a pleasure to capture this gorgeous couple's love!  Congratulations!  We are so happy for you both and are very excited for your wedding next year!
