Lauren and Andrew are what dreams are made of. We started their fun Sacramento engagement session photos at Ella and basically my heart was theirs from that moment on. We spent over an hour chatting and getting to know each other over tasty cocktails and snacks. I love starting engagement sessions like this. Being photographed is weird, y’all. I like easing in. I like getting to see how a couple talks to each other, how they interact without a camera pointed at them. It’s this time before we start making photos that make the pictures even better. Lauren and Andrew are so good together. They are hilarious and delightful. Best of all, they love each other a whole bunch and aren’t afraid to show it. They pushed past the awkwardness of being photographed in public loving each other and we made some magic. I loved dancing on rooftops and giggling through gardens with them. As an added bonus we got to see a family of raccoons descending a tree at the end of the night. I mean, honestly is there anything better than watching nocturnal creatures come out to play? Lauren and Andrew are the best and I cannot wait for their wedding next year – it’s sure to be just as magical as they are.
