• Gardner + Lauren | Engaged

… been married a month, actually one month tomorrow to be exact!! Wow!…. and so I know I have a ton to learn. I’m still in the honeymoon phase where doing his laundry seems fun and loading the dishwasher together doesn’t seem like a chore. We’re still putting together our many many shelves from Ikea and trying to figure out exactly where to hang our bath towels! … Someone PLEASE tell Michael to use the towel rack… NOT the bedroom door:) Anway…I love being married and I really love being able to relate to my brides. They are planning and preparing and doing everything that I JUST finished doing and so it’s great to be able to tell them

that it’s worth it!! All of the planning and the details are WORTH the time and energy! Promise!


Walking around beautiful downtown Richmond with Gardner and Lauren and talking about their wedding plans was different than previous engagement sessions because this time, I was MARRIED!  I love it! I know and understand their excitement and that makes it so much easier for me to capture their personalities! I hadn’t met either of them before their session but after 5 minutes of talking to them and seeing Lauren’s boots, I knew we would be friends! I seriously don’t know how I luck out with my couples… ALL of them are awesome and not to mention, GORGEOUS!


The three of us walked up and down Grace Street in downtown Richmond where Lauren is living and where they will start their life together next October! We made our way over the Monument Avenue where it’s almost IMPOSSIBLE to not find great portrait locations and we had a blast. Gardner and Lauren are both Dental students and I loved hearing about they future dreams of opening a practice together in a small town. I also loved learning that Lauren is very much a details girl…. which is my kind of girl.  Like I said… we’re going to be great friends! I just know it! After meeting these two and getting to know them, I’m a little bummed that I have to wait a whole YEAR for their wedding!!! Gardner and Lauren, you guys are awesome and I am so honored to be a part of this HUGE part of your lives! Thank you!!! Enjoy my favorites!!

I LOVE Lauren’s front porch swing! … and that her boots matched it perfectly!

This was probably one of the first 25 shots I took…. really? They’re THAT good at being in front of the camera!… Their wedding is going to be AWESOME!

Oh my GOSH Lauren you’re gorgeous!


I’m kinda a big fan of that garage door… can you tell!?
