Lauren and Nick and their pup Kodiak are the freaking best!! I absolutely loved hanging out with them at Sayen House and Gardens for their engagement session. Their style was seriously the best, and they’re just so much fun to be around. This little fam is up for anything and they were all just the cutest together! From the first time I chatted with Lauren, I knew they were my people, so I’ve been eagerly waiting for their session since the moment we set a date! Also, major perks when your couple brings their adorable furbaby, because Kodiak the Weimaraner is such a cutie pie and was SO good for our shoot! Unsure if you should bring your furbaby to your session? I say heck yes, but let me tell you more about that here! 🙂
Nick and Lauren met back in high school, so they were high school sweethearts! The only plot twist was that he was 3 years older, so they didn’t start dating until she was going into her senior year of high school and he was in his sophomore year of college. He was living in Manayunk in Philly where he went to school and she was living at home, but Lauren would secretly drive her car over the bridge and sneak to his house all the time! His place in Manayunk will always have a special place in their hearts, especially now that they’ve finally spilled the beans to their parents about the sneaking after 7 years haha!
Lauren told me all about their proposal, and it is one for the books!!! She said, “So our favorite band is Circa Survive. They are an alternative rock band from Doylestown, PA. We have seen them play 9 times to date haha. Like Manayunk, Circa was an integral part of our beginnings. The music always brings us back to the sweet days of our beginning young love and fearless adventures. SO ANYWAY, Nick had purchased VIP meet & greet tickets for me, him, and my brother to go to back on my bday in November 2016. It was our first time actually MEETING our idols and they had a private acoustic session for like 100 of us before the main show. They wound up doing this question and answer thing and Nick grabbed the mic and goes “Alright, I friggin LOVE you guys but this questions isn’t for YOU!” And then he told me to stand and got on one knee and asked me to marry him! LOL. It was insane and a dream and totally us. It’s still unreal to me that our favorite band in the entire world that means everything to us gave us MARRIAGE advice and talked to us and joked with us. Ugh, so surreal!!! <3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R927eFuZN4c –> Some random guy got a video!” Okay, HOW AMAZING IS THAT?! You need to watch that video, I had major chills!!!! These two are the CUTEST ever!
I just can’t get over how awesome this sweet duo is – a typical date night for them usually involves snuggling watching Netflix documentaries, eating froyo, playing music together (they both play guitar and piano), or going hiking and climbing mountains. They LOVE to hike now and explore national parks. They went to Colorado and Maine over the summer and said that it was so life changing. Like, come on!!! These two do it ALL!
Nick and Lauren, I cannot wait to celebrate your big day with you two in May! It’s going to be incredible and I know you’re going to make it totally you! Thank you both for being so adventurous and fun, I had a blast at your session and can’t wait to see you both in a few months!!! Congratulations! XOXO
