Rainy Day Engagement Session

A word from Tricia: Driving out to Cummington, MA to meet Annie and Gil there was a thick fog from melting snow and a light rain that was falling.

Since Annie is in her second year of law school in Vermont and Gil is a busy professional in the Boston area, they knew they had to seize the moment rain or shine.
