I creepily slid into Priscilla's DM's to ask if I could take some bridal pictures of her and her husband, Kobe, when I was visiting Zion National Park. To my amazement, she said YES!!! And oh my gosh, I don't think I'll ever be able to thank them enough. They are seriously some of the coolest people ever. She trains horses and he saves people for a living (not kidding - he's a correction officer and on the rescue team for the park). Like seriously amazing people!
Oh and this session took place where Kobe proposed. Isn't that just awesome?! It was the icing on the whole experience.
This session never would have happened if I didn't take a risk. So, I just wanted to encourage you, TAKE THE DANG RISK. Send the message. Make the move. Buy the plane ticket. Apply for the job. Start the business. Will you fail?! Maybe. But who the heck cares? At least you tried. And I don't know about you, but I'd much rather fall flat on my face because I tried than sit back and doing nothing. Life is seriously too short to have any regrets.
HEYYY!!! I'M LAUREN! I'M A WEDDING AND COUPLE PHOTOGRAPHER IN RECKLESS PURSUIT OF CHRIST, ADVENTURES, AND LOVE. I'M FROM A SMALL TOWN IN PA WHERE MY ROOTS RUN DEEP. I LOVE JESUS WITH MY WHOLE HEART, I WILL JUMP ON (OR OUT OF) A PLANE AT THE DROP OF A HAT FOR AN ADVENTURE, AND I BELIEVE LIFE IS BETTER LIVED OUTSIDE WITH YOUR HANDS AND FEET DIRTY.
ALL THESE THINGS PLAY A HUGE ROLE IN MY PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE, WHICH I'D DESCRIBE AS NATURAL, VIBRANT, AND AUTHENTIC. OTHER THINGS THAT BRING ME LIFE ARE SNOWBOARDING, FLANNELS, MOUNTAINS, SMALL TOWNS, RAINY DAYS, WILDFLOWERS, AND WEDDINGS! I WOULD TRULY BE HONORED TO CAPTURE YOUR SPECIAL DAY!
