• Adam + Lauren | Engaged

they were brave when they asked to do their engagement session in January! Lauren emailed and asked if we could schedule this shoot and said they were up for the challenge so we made it happen. This past weekend I drove up to Harpers Ferry, WV and shot Adam and Lauren’s session and it was CHILLY! Oh man was it cold! It’s already hard to get “warmed up” in front of the camera, figuratively speaking… but we LITERALLY needed to get them warmed up! The 30 degree day was definitely a challenge but they made it happen and I’m so thankful

we were able to accomplish such a fun shoot! Not only did we have an amazing location, we had their puppy TUCKER as well! Now, I shot this engagement only a few days before we got Bokeh! So I was little excited and I was all ears when it came to puppy training and what to expect. It’s a HARD job….. and it’s even harder when you are dealing with a dog that can literally pull you down a hill! Tucker is SO strong!!!! (We won’t have that issue with Bokeh… he barely weighs 4 pounds! He’s all FLUFF!).  Tucker cooperated for his portion of the shoot and then we headed out to the rest of Harpers Ferry to use up the light that was quickly fading. Despite the cold, it was a beautiful day and a perfect afternoon for some picture taking!! Lauren and Adam are such a great pair. Lauren’s bubbly personality and Adam’s calm, soft spoken-ness (I just made up that word) makes them such a well balanced couple and they are a joy to be around!  They kept going and trying my crazy ideas even when they couldn’t feel their hands or toes. I left their session so excited for their big day that will be here before we know it!! It’s going to be a fabulous celebration!!


Lauren and Adam, thank you so much for allowing me to capture this phase of your life!!! Next time we’re together… the temperature will be above freezing and we’re going to have a blast!

Awww Tucker… Good boy:)
