Lauren & Nathan’s wedding previews

From the groom ~

Lauren and I met while we were both attending law school at LSU in Baton Rouge. From the moment I first saw her in those leopard leggings during my Employment Discrimination exam (somehow it ended up being my lowest grade that semester), I knew she was the one. After deploying some super smooth tactics, including pretending like I didn’t know who she was, I somehow convinced her to study with me at the library. Eventually, after buying her countless smoothies during our study breaks, she finally agreed to go on a date with me! We decided that we would go to the movies for our first date and I even let her choose the movie thinking she would choose some boring chick flick, but to my surprise, she chose Mad Max Fury Road. Once we got to the movies, I offered to buy some snacks expecting that she would choose popcorn and candy, but again to my surprise, she chose a pickle…yes, a pickle. It was at that moment that I knew two things: 1) this was not your typical girl; and 2) I had to make her mine. There was really just one more test for Lauren to pass at this point – meeting my now 10 year old golden retriever, Marley. Lauren and Marley became best friends immediately upon meeting each other. In fact, the first time Lauren met Marley, they rolled around on the ground together for at least 15 minutes. After I graduated and moved to Shreveport to start my job at Bradley Murchison Kelly & Shea, our future seemed a little uncertain as Lauren was set to take the Texas bar exam in May of 2016 and planned to move back home to Dallas, where she all but had a job lined up at a prominent oil and gas firm. To my surprise, Lauren told me she was fully committed to me and was going to take the Louisiana bar exam and search for job opportunities in Shreveport. When Lauren told me this, it was one of the happiest days of my life. Shortly thereafter, Lauren accepted a job with the twenty-sixth judicial district court for Bossier and Webster Parishes, where upon graduating and passing the bar she clerked for the Honorable Parker Self and the Honorable Michael Nerren. In December of 2016, Lauren met her new best friend in this world – a tiny miniature longhair cream Dachshund named Nash, who is as ornery as he is cute (Lauren would kill me if I somehow didn’t mention Nash during this whole thing). During the summer of her clerkship, Lauren took and passed the Texas bar exam. After Lauren’s clerkship, she accepted a position as an associate attorney with Langley, Parks, Horton & Maxwell in Shreveport. We closed on our new home in Shreveport on August 4, 2017. On that same day, Lauren made me the happiest man in the world by agreeing to marry me after I got down on one knee in our empty new home filled with candles and rose petals. We then shared a picnic of her favorite food (spaghetti) and celebrated with champagne and chardonnay (her favorite white wine). We have been celebrating ever since and are excited beyond words to become husband and wife. We cannot wait to celebrate with our closest friends and family on October 13, 2018 in Dallas, Texas.

Mackenzie & Connor’s engagement previews!

The engagement session was at Dallas Arboretum.

From Mackenzie:

Connor & I met early my junior year in High School, he had a girlfriend at the time. He & I weren’t really friends, just knew of each other. That girlfriend & one more girlfriend later, we started texting a little & he asked me to hangout a few times, after months of getting to know each other & hanging out he asked me to be his girlfriend. He went off to SFA right after that & I was in my Senior year of High School. Not long after I think it was pretty clear to the both of us that we had thought we were each other’s future, & talked about getting married a lot down the road. We did the distance relationship for 3 years & 3 months which wasn’t always easy but forever will be worth it. I decided about that time I wanted to live with him & end the distance, I found an equally good management job in Nac so that way we could live together & start a new chapter together while he completed his Masters Degree. Little did I know he had a similar idea; not long after the plans came for me to go off to training for my new job, he took me to my dads grave to ask him for his permission to have my hand in marriage, followed by him getting on one knee & asking me to marry him!!! I cannot wait to be his WIFE!!

We shot at the Dallas Arboretum. I have been shooting there for over 10 years and that day was the first day I ever had to park across the street! It was packed full of people for a big event and 3 weddings, crazy but we made it happen.

She’s a beautiful young lady with a very bright future. Here are some of my favorites 🙂

Couple’s session – David & Kathleen

Here are some of my favorite shots from the day.
