She’s a teacher. He is a builder. They met through friends and later fell in love. Spending the afternoon with Bart and Lauren, it was obvious they loved each other. They were both so enthusiastic about each other, often times jointly telling stories and laughing about it before they could even finish. When we started planning their engagement session, I asked Bart how he proposed. He explained how he did it on a bike ride last autumn, hiding the ring in a pumpkin and stopping at a local park in Utica. Unbeknownst to Bart and Lauren, someone snapped a photo while he popped the question (he proudly showed me the moment, and yes, it was beautiful.)
Judging by the fun we had during their engagement shoot and how they describe their friends and family, their wedding is going to be quite the experience. The word “fun” doesn’t quite cover it. I can’t wait.
