This engagement session is so special to me! Lauren is one of my best friends, we’ve been friends since we met in dance class when we were 4 years old!! How incredible is that? I’m so blessed to have friends that have been with me my entire life to share memories and grow up with. We’ve been in bands together throughout elementary school & middle school (Glitter Girls & Full Intentions yessss!), took up to Spanish 6 together in high school and even traveled to Spain & Mexico together, and have traveled to visit each other throughout the college years & now! So when she asked me to take her engagement photos with her awesome fiancée, I was over the moon ecstatic!
When Lauren introduced her girlfriend Lauren to our friend group (so funny they have the same name, even funnier that with their last initials they are Lauren B & Lauren C!), she IMMEDIATELY fit in! Our friend group can be intimidating I must admit, we have so many memories together & are very very loud when we get together hah. So the fact that Lauren C didn’t miss a beat when hanging out with us was impressive and we were all in love with her instantly!
As you can see, these two are truly a beautiful couple! But even more they are just as beautiful on the inside. Individually they are incredible people, and when they are together they just fit each other’s personalities and interact together so amazingly. Lauren C, we are so so thrilled to have you part of our friend family forever!! Love you both!
For their session, we walked around the Tidal Basin in Washington DC right after the sun came up on a beautiful cloudy Sunday morning (a dream for a photographer!). We did an entire lap, stopping whenever we saw a beautiful scene. We ended up stopping a lot! Haha. And it ended up perfectly - there was a race going on which we think might have deterred other photographers from going at that time, because there was barely a crowd! Absolutely perfect. We ended the first portion at the Jefferson Memorial, and then went home for a quick change before going out to the cutest coffee shop, Colony Club! It was perfect getting to take photos celebrating their engagement here, as this was the place they had their first date!
Lauren & Lauren, I’ve adored seeing you two blossom into the incredible couple you are. And I absolutely ADORE this session :D Enjoy viewing these photos!
Next was our trip to Colony Club coffee shop! <3
Love you LB & LC! <3
