The magazine wanted to showcase all that Boston had to offer, and it was essential to find a producer that was not only familiar with the city, but could tap into the very pulse of what makes it so fashion-friendly. When GH's photo editor, Devon Baverman, approached MDP about producing their photoshoot, Michele and Matthew jumped at the opportunity.
BEHIND THE SCENES
We started our day in Boston's Innovation District at the Envoy Hotel, a luxurious urban getaway with chic furnishings, concrete flooring and golden pillars.
One of the most impressive parts about working with photographer Bryan Derballa (save for his super down to earth, inspired personality) was his use of natural light—and the high ceiling, atrium-style lobby of the Envoy provided the right amount of sun for our first shot of the day.
We're on a boat! A big thanks to our friends at Classic Harbor Line for helping us set sail for a successful shot.
Not to mention their DIY Bloody Mary bar! Who doesn't love a midday cocktail?
Meghan does ;)
After a quick wardrobe change, Meghan and our crew whisked their way to sweeping panoramic waterfront views of the Envoy's Lookout Bar.

That's a wrap! And what a way to finish. We couldn't be happier with the final images and are so proud of all the hard work everyone put forth to make this photoshoot a huge success. Be sure to pick up your own copy of Good Housekeeping :)
