Morgan + Lauren | Engaged

A Downtown Baltimore Engagement

I’ve driven

past it a million times. This was a city I never had a reason to stop in. Normally, when I’m driving up north, my destination takes me on the interstate right around Baltimore. I’ve driven past the skyline and have seen the Raven’s and the Orioles stadiums but that’s really all I’ve ever seen of Baltimore….. until Monday! Morgan and Lauren just recently got engaged and I was so excited when Lauren emailed me with the news! Lauren was one of my FIRST coaching clients this year and during our time together she mentioned that she would be getting engaged soon! ….Now, I hear that literally ALL the time. SO many girls email me before they even


have a ring on their finger!! But I could tell that Lauren was very confident about this. She spoke about her boyfriend Morgan in a very permanent way…. like he was a part of the family… and after several years of dating, I bet he feels like a part of the family!  These two are just wonderful and as I got to know Morgan, I realized just how much of a perfect compliment he is to Lauren.  They’re SO excited about this new phase of life and I’m so excited for them!! They made a dreary evening in Baltimore feel bright and sunny!  And I’m sure all of the harbor could hear Lauren’s laughs!!! I had an amazing time shooting this final engagement of the year and I can’t wait for their wedding to roll around!! It will be here before we know it!! Enjoy some of my favorites from their session on Monday!

Beautiful ring!!
Love these!
Teal doors?! Yes please! Just had to use them!
I think it’s safe to say that they have fun together……
Work it!!
A favorite!!
Where he proposed!
Another fav!
