This session was seriously serendipitous.
Lauren contacted me about doing an engagement session at West Point, but it just so happened the ONE weekend she & her fiancé Mario were up there, was one of two weekends this summer that I was NOT there. But, as luck would have it, they live only a few hours from Atlantic Beach, NC where my family was vacationing this summer. So when she agreed to meet up for a beach session, I was too excited.
Lauren & Mario were so natural in front of the camera, and I couldn't help but fall a little bit in love with them while observing them that evening. Lauren's hair was magic in the sea breeze, as was the way Mario did the smallest, yet sweetest, gestures like kissing her hands or grabbing her face totally unprompted.
Thank you guys for dodging fire ants, sitting In-between baby palm trees, and getting soaked in the ocean...all while looking flawless and most importantly, majorly in love. xo
