Goodness I don’t even know where to start. How about how excited I was when Lauren emailed me asking me to photograph her engagement session. I felt SO honored because I remembered Lauren from high school. She was a year older than me and played soccer. What I really remember about her was how artistic she was. So it was SUCH an honor that she thought highly enough of me to document such a special time in her life.
Ok, now can we PLEASE talk about the obvious here? Please take a gander at Lauren and Anthony’s beautiful green eyes and freckles? Could they be anymore perfect? They made my job so simple, I could have captured a great photo with an iPhone with great subjects like Lauren and Anthony. (after all they are easy on the eyes) =]
We started the session at Heartwood hall, an old historic manor in Piperton, TN. I shot a wedding there once before so I was ALL too excited when Lauren requested we go there. There are so many great nostalgic nooks, we had to visit them all. The very popular “Barn” is my absolute favorite. I’m such a sucker for twinkly lights and old reclaimed hardwood floors. There is also a beautiful lake, cabin, and garden- it was like a photographer’s dream come true. After we got our fix at Heartwood we headed on down to Arlington Town Square. Lauren informed me that she and Anthony had recently bought their first home together in Arlington and that it was very special to them. I was SO down, you know how I feel about love stories, and this one in particular I was THRILLED to be a part of. Lauren and Anthony have been together for over five years, so they are both so eager to start their journey as husband and wife. I can’t think of anyone so deserving. When Lauren moved, Anthony would move. They were both so playful with each other, and just honestly spoke the same language. I’m so happy for the two of you. I hope you guys love these images as much as I do. You are both so beautiful and deserve a lifetime of happiness.
