I met with Lauren and Kirk last week to go over all the booking information for their 2015 wedding and we shot their engagement session that same night! I think this was a first for me and it worked out great because I was able to really spend some time with them as a couple. By getting to know a bride and groom before the wedding day, I’m so much better equipped to capture real moments and personalities. Lauren found AGP through her brother who will be married in October. This is not the first time I’ve worked with the same family on more than one wedding and I LOVE it! I suppose there could be a downside if the families I work with weren’t always so amazing!
Lauren and Kirk met here in Melbourne and started dating after some persistence on the part of Kirk – which I think is awesome for a love story! But it wasn’t long after they started dating that Kirk was stationed in Oklahoma for six months and Lauren moved to Miami for law school. They must have known during that short time living in the same town that their relationship was special because as soon as he could, Kirk moved to South Florida and eventually proposed to Lauren on a walk around Biscayne Bay. She said yes and they celebrated with a romantic rooftop dinner at the beautiful Epic Hotel overlooking the bay. Love.
We started out their engagement session in Melbourne and finished shooting in Lauren’s parent’s backyard in Satellite Beach…
Congratulations to a beautiful couple and thank you for choosing Angel Gray Photography!
