Every couple has a story. The story of how they met and began their journey.

Lauren and Joe have been dating for about five years, but they have actually known each other since 2003. What is so special about their story is that they had the opportunity to develop a strong friendship before they ever began dating. In my opinion, that is how the best romances are born.

I was actually photographing a wedding on the day they got engaged, and I was obsessively checking my phone during free moments to find a text that said “I’m engaged!!!!”

Finally, the text came in:

Joe and Lauren truly bring out the best in each other, and I have seen such a growth in character throughout their dating relationship in each of them. These two are such a great example of what it means to be patient and wait for the “right time”. I feel like the luckiest photographer to have had the opportunity to take my best friend’s engagement photos, and I cannot wait to be IN their wedding to support them as they make a commitment to become husband and wife. So to my best friend, I can’t wait to watch you marry yours.

    Yesss!!! The almost kiss shot with the sun in the back is LEGIT.

“Other things may change us, but we start and end with family”

Getting the Kupres kids to have fun in front of the camera was not a challenge at all. I found their smiles and goofiness absolutely contagious, and I left this session feeling completely inspired by their willingness to let their personalities shine though each frame. As if I was not lucky enough to work with this fun and energetic group, I also got to photograph in the most beautiful fall location. There is a reason family photos are so popular this time of year — the COLORS!

This family post is sure to bring a smile to your face:)Enjoy!
