Matt and Lauren are our best friends. I know all photographers try to get cheeky and say that their clients are their best friends; however, in this particular case it’s a true sentiment! Gena and I met Matt & Lauren while in college and have remained friends ever since: partying, traveling, growing up, and just being together. So naturally when these MIDDLE SCHOOL SWEETHEARTS (sorry about the all CAPS but come-on… middle school!) decided the time was right to finally get married we knew we would be their photographers, we wouldn’t have it any other way. The couple decided to do their engagement photos in their hometown of Terre Haute, Indiana. We started the day just walking around downtown, then we drove out to to the country for a little picnic. After the picnic we made them daringly stand on a tree stump out in the lake (because we are friends, remember). We ended the night back at their house with lovingly prepared beer can chicken and pyrotechnics (that’s right, sparklers)!
