When Jon proposed to Ayesha, let’s just say she wasn’t expecting it. They were walking their pup, Lucy, along the Charles River and it was quite late at night. In fact, Ayesha said something to the effect of I am glad I don’t have anything valuable with me because they weren’t the only ones out that late. Jon just smiled to himself. Of course, they had nothing to fear with their beautiful giant French Mastiff Lucy by their side. So when he found the perfect spot, a dock along the river overlooking Cambridge, Jon popped the question. As you can imagine, Ayesha happily said yes!

For their engagement session, we knew two things. First, we had to find our way to that dock. And second, Lucy would have to make an appearance. So we started our foggy morning e-session at the river esplanade.

I love how they hold hands.

And we made our way from the bridges and green spaces to the infamous dock.

This one reminds me of cornfields, which in turns reminds me of the midwest. And since they met at Ohio State, I find it all very fitting.

Lucy steals the show as we take her for a walk and some playtime in the Back Bay.

Along the beautiful tree lined path of Commonwealth Ave, a spot the family enjoys often. I love Lucy’s expression.
