I just love these two! Lauren and I were in the same sorority back in college and getting to reconnect with her during her wedding planning has been so much fun. This time last year she and JD came over to have dinner with Ted and me and we had the best time. Lauren has this infectious spirit that makes everyone around her feel so loved. After meeting JD it was clear that Lauren had met her perfect counterpart. Not only do they share the same hobbies and pastimes, but they share a love for people and both have a way of making you feel known and cared for.
JD teaches at Cranbrook and these two actually get to live on the absolutely beautiful grounds. So basically they live in a storybook! When your clients have a backyard this pretty of course we have to take advantage of it! We wandered around the perfectly manicured grounds and stepped inside the most picturesque library for a few shots. These two both love reading, so it was extra fun to capture them right in their element- surrounded by books. And the library looked a whole lot like a scene out of Beauty and the Beast so basically it quickly became one of the coolest places I have photographed!
While chatting about engagement pictures Lauren and I also discussed going with a vintage travel theme. So Lauren put together a few things to create the perfect vintage travel setup. I love the way the images of her in the fur with the suitcase and big hat turned out. I love that these two were able to show some much of their personality during their engagement shoot.
Lauren and JD I could not be more excited to be a part of your wedding day! I think you both are pretty darn amazing, and cannot wait to see the beautiful day that celebrates the start of your forever!
