Hayley & Greg | Love Story

We met Hayley back in January when doing a bridal show in Quincy and we we were so excited that she asked us to do her engagement photos. When she contacted us about their engagement shoot and said it was going to be a styled shoot we were excited to do our first ever styled shoot. It was all organized by the talented, Sara, of Sara Elizabeth Weddings. It was neat to see all the ideas they had come together and be able to capture the fun and creative ideas they had.  What a special twist on engagement photos and capturing Hayley and Greg’s relationship.  Here are just a few of our favorites from their styled engagement session.
