One small dose of bravery. That's all Lauren needed to begin her epic love story with Jon. Just about to start grad school, Lauren made a promise to herself that she would go on every adventure that came her way before she had no more free time. Jon and Lauren were playing on the same Zogsports football team in the city when Jon extended an open offer to everyone on the team to join him and some friends at brunch. Lauren summoned that dose of bravery and accepted...she was the ONLY one who accepted. Even though they barely knew each other, they had the best time and Lauren knew she needed him in her life. What Lauren didn't know was that while Jon's invitation to brunch was for the entire team, he was hoping that she'd be the one to accept! Cue the "awwwww!" Almost four years later, we are more than ready for the wedding!!! I had so much fun photographing these two cuties at the Willowwood Arboretum in Far Hills, NJ. We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather! <3

I photographed a good portion of this session on film and I can't swoon enough!!! Just look at these gorgeous tones! Lauren, you're a dream!!
