Ben & Lauren

With every couple that hires me, before their session I make sure to ask how they met, what they like to do together, what kind of look they're hoping for, as well as inquire about their own personal style. This is to give me an idea of what they're like as a couple as well as an idea of what they're expecting from their session.

Ben and Lauren made sure I knew that they loved camping and hiking, that they wanted to include Ben's dog and - my favorite piece of information - that they were up for anything.
