Ben and Lauren are engaged, and very soon to be married!
These guys have been each other’s best friend since high school and dated long distance while they attended College in different states! Capturing their story and personalities during an engagement photoshoot was such a privilege!
In preparation for the shoot we discussed what they would like and not like in their engagement photos, I suggested overall looks, and styles that might reflect who they are as a couple. Lauren and I then had a quick text dialogue about style ideas, outfits and color combos agreeing on an overall plan.
I could tell that Ben and Lauren were looking from a relaxed feel with some fun and creativity mixed in, totally my kind of shoot. We met up at a local sports park a few weeks later just before dusk, as I knew the park well, I knew it would have a variety of scenes we could use to maximize our time and give them several looks and a diverse gallery of photos.
We had so much fun with the gorgeous light as we started at the back of the squash courts, wandered through the avenue of trees to the overgrown bush then back to have a bit of creative fun with the unused beach volleyball court at the end.
Within an hour we were done. I was able to surprise Ben and Lauren by sending through a couple of sneak peek pics while they were still out on their date post-photoshoot. Don’t they look great, congrats Ben and Lauren!
