Lesley & Andrew’s Sneak Attack Engagement

Lesley had been trying to talk Andrew into the idea of an engagement session for a bit, but he wasn’t exactly excited about the idea…

Fast forward to this past weekend, and there may have been some slight misdirection when she explained to Andrew why they would be meeting up with me at the Boston Harbor Hotel.  We were just going to talk about the wedding and maybe take a few photos. Maybe…riiiiiight.

Luckily, it was Lesley’s birthday, so Andrew couldn’t be upset when I showed up with two cameras and an assistant!  While it took a little bit of encouragement, I would say that Andrew gave us a brilliant performance.
