Lauren and Jack.  I so loved photographing these two.  
The pair have been playing the long distance relationship game for some time now – she, here in Charlotte; Jack, in Los Angeles.  I know they seriously can’t wait for their March wedding day to get here so they can begin their new life in California together.  Truly, I couldn’t be more excited for them.  
Lauren is *extra* special to our family, as she is not only sister to our talented friend and filmmaker, Jared, but she has been a caretaker for our Boone and our dogs many a time.  There were even a couple times this past season that she would care for Boone while he was sick, but we had to shoot a wedding.  I was always beyond grateful to have the peace of mind that he was being loved while we had to be away.
When Lauren told me she wanted their engagement session to be super simple / super relaxed at her cozy little home as they made breakfast together and hung out, I was totally up for it.
