It is always exciting when old friends and acquaintances share news about their engagement. We have known Lauren since she was a girl – Luciana’s favorite babysitter! Lauren was a pleasure to work with when we photographed her high school senior portraits, quite a model. When her mother called about Lauren and John’s engagement, we could hardly believe that so much time has passed.
Lauren and John met at Wheaton College and they are a perfect match. Their love and friendship is so obvious. We needed to capture their connection in a fun and cheery way that would express their great personalities. When we spoke about John’s proposal, always my favorite story, I knew that ice cream HAD TO be involved. John arranged for a cup of ice cream to be left on a bench by their favorite ice cream shop. Luckily Illinois weather cooperated! When Lauren made it to the bottom of the cup, the best surprise awaited her!
Woodside Creamery in Hockessin seemed just the perfect spot to document Lauren and John’s love.
We can not wait to photograph their wedding in September.
