Lauren + Chris' Mystic engagement photos were supposed to be a black tie style photo shoot. But when a blizzard was in the forecast, Lauren contacted me to see if we could do the photos that weekend instead, taking advantage of our lovely(?) New England weather. I loved the idea of some Mystic engagement photos in the snow! Since they will be tying the knot in the WARM (thank goodness) sun in beautiful St. Lucia, I thought the contrast was a great idea! I also thought the idea of the blizzard was perfect because we would be able to truly show their relationship, which is naturally very warm and snuggly. Add in some hats, mittens and cute pea coats and it made for such a cozy engagement session! I knew Lauren + Chris were an awesome couple, that's pretty obvious after spending any amount of time with them, but after the session I fell even more in love with them. Chris was such a good sport the whole time, doing any kind of crazy thing Lauren and I came up with, holding my equipment, protecting it from the scary weather, keeping the car running for much needed warm up breaks! And Lauren's incredibly bright, outgoing personality just radiated the whole time. She may have been freezing occasionally, but it didn't show. Her pure joy of being with Chris was enough to keep her (all of us really) going through the visit of Juno. I feel so honored to be chosen as their wedding photographer, I absolutely can not wait to have way more time to spend photographing their love story!!
