Love Shoot: Sara & David

I first discovered Max and Margaret’s work when Anne Sage interviewed them about their company, Unusually Fine Photography, and they were kind enough to let me share Sara and David’s shoot with you. This is not your average love shoot, which is exactly what I love about it. It’s intimate and sexy and sweet, and totally authentic. Doesn’t it feel a little like a retro movie? But why am I telling you this – on with the photos! Here are Sara and David (who, according to Max and Margaret, “aside from being very pretty to look at, are tres cool”) and Boston’s South End.

Don’t you just love love? And don’t Max and Margaret take awesome photos? And if you’re wondering if they’re any fun, check out this little blurb from their about page:

Max sports a moustache but Margaret does not. We have four legs and five languages between us. Plus a little French. Send us anywhere and we’ll be pretty alright. We love Rome. And Paris. And New York. And wherever it is that you want to take us, too. We love turning strangers into friends.

Fun, right?! See more Unusually Fine photos at their blog and find out more about them in this interview over at The City Sage.

    WOW! What a great shoot!

  • Blue Green Arts says:

    Wow, this is beautiful! the pictures are great and really capture some intimate moments

  • Dream Wedding Italy says:

    Beautiful photos and a really adorable couple. The quote from the photographers made me LOL too!

  • Jennifer says:

    These are great photos! Almost like something out of a magazine. I have a feeling my husband and I would look super goofy if we attempted the same poses, but this couple looks fabulous!

  • Astred says:

    While the photography, framing and skill in these shots are lovely, the poses and subject matter is two steps away from being soft-core porn. Not something I would be looking for in my engagement shoot.

  • Sarah says:

    these are so embarassing, I feel weird looking at them I'm afraid. why on earth would you want to show yourself off like this to people around the world that you've never met?

  • Kathryn says:

    Hi Astred and Sarah,

    I don't know that Sara and David considered this an engagement shoot in the way most people do – as something you do to show your friends and family, and at no point did I call it an engagement shoot. It's much closer to a couple's boudoir shoot than anything else, and frankly, I think the photos are beautiful, which is why I shared them. I'm sorry they made you uncomfortable.


  • Ingrid Nelson says:

    it seems to me that the photographers captured something 'real' here…intimate yes, but all instantaneous emotions between two people are 'intimate'. There is so much contrivance out there now, maybe capturing something authentic is what catches a few off guard. To me that is the mark of a good photographer…and is what makes an interesting image. STUNNING. Kathryn….thanks for posting.

  • Autumn says:


    I don't think there's any reason to apologize. You intro'd the pictures pretty clearly. I think this is a great fit for what I think of Snippet & Ink – edgy, sexy, beautiful weddings.

  • The Memory Journalists says:

    Wow! What a couple and what a fabulous shoot! I want more! :o)

  • Luna and Chloe says:

    This is fabulous. It's gives you a sense of how they are together…and I just love that. Playful, loving, hot and sexy – I see a new trend coming on! Thanks for sharing. Happy weekend.
