Noue and Jeff are a dynamic, loving, and goofy couple. They met three years ago on Tinder (yup, those apps totally work!!) and have been going strong ever since.
The two share a love of the outdoors, fishing, and their dogs. Each time I’ve met with them, they have a new story about fishing or hiking and I can see the passion they have for each other. They are my #relationshipgoals for being a great outdoor couple.
Jeff proposed last May when they were going up to their cabin. He tied the ring on a new fishing rod for Noue. How cute?!?!
For their engagement session, I met Noue, Jeff, and Noue’s mother at Afton State Park. Noue’s mother sewed them traditional Hmong outfits earlier in the year and Noue, being the sweetheart that she is, wanted to honor her mother by wearing them in their photos.
I seriously can’t get enough of this couple! I wish them peace and strength as they finalize plans for their wedding at the end of June.
There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!
Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!
My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.
I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
