Is there a happier time in a person’s life than when they meet that special someone with whom they can see spending the rest of their years? Okay, maternity pictures, but that’s a different blog! Wedding and engagement photographs are some of the most important pictures that a person can have in their lifetime and it’s important to hire a professional to capture these memories in a way that reflects who you both are. We recently had the pleasure of photographing the newly engaged couple, Lauren and David, to mark this joyous occasion.

Lauren and David’s love story started eight months ago when they met through a mutual friend. And it was obvious that these two love each other a great deal when I met them. He proposed on his birthday at dinner in front of all their friends and family. The cake, instead of a traditional birthday cake, came out saying “OMG … He went to Jared’s” and he went down on one knee to ask for the greatest birthday present he could ever hope for.  Of course, she said yes.

They will be married in March 2014, hopefully at the Lutheran Church in Tampa with a reception on the water. “We want an all black-and-white wedding with accents of green,” said Lauren. The photographs that I took of them will be hanging in their home and at the engagement party and so I was happy to hear them say “we loved them it was very difficult narrowing it down to the ones we wanted to be framed.”

The problem is, as every photographer knows, the weather never does what you want it to do. I booked two days with Lauren and David in order to go to two different outdoor locations for their photographs and it rained. Both days. Thankfully, the photographs came out well. “Our favorite aspect was that both days we shot our photos the weather wasn’t perfect but Jonathan’s professional abilities made the photos amazing and you couldn’t even tell the weather wasn’t the best.”

“We would both just like to say how much fun it was to work with Jonathan. It’s not every day that you have professional pictures taken and he made the experience awesome! Both locations he took us to were exactly what we had envisioned for our photos.” Engagements, weddings, births, graduations and other milestones are when it’s a good idea to trust your memories to a professional photographer and it’s important to find a photographer whose work you enjoy and who can bring out your personality. I’m so glad to have been a part of this milestone for this terrific couple.

I want to wish Lauren and David luck and happiness in their life together!
