Lauren and Bennett are planning their wedding for next June in Sunriver, Oregon. Lauren asked if we could take some fun and casual engagement photos in one of their favorite places in Sunriver. Of course! I love taking photos in places that are meaningful to my couples.
This little fishing spot where they take their two boys fishing is also one of my favorite places for family photos. It was so perfect for their engagement session.
What you aren’t seeing in these photos is the adventure at the start of their session. The river water was super low so when Josh jokingly suggested I take them out to the island since we could cross – I was like, “let’s do it!”. Then I got stuck in the muck and had mud oozing through my leather boots the rest of the session. Thank goodness Lauren and Bennett weren’t the ones to get stuck in the mud!
After that, we just hung out along the shoreline for their romantic photos. I just love that this spot is where they fish and float the river!
After just a few in their first outfits, they through on their fun sports outfits that were filled with personality. They wore jerseys from their favorite teams.
They also had cups made from the cousin of one of the bridesmaids who created beautiful watercolor paintings representing their home states. They had the artwork put on the cups for them to treasure forever. How awesome is that?
Lauren and Bennett,
I love how sweet you two are together and full of personality and joy all your photos are! I can’t wait to photograph your wedding day and meet your two boys.
