When I met Lauren over email this summer, I loved her idea to shoot her engagement photos at the venue where her and Jake will tie the knot next September. Not only did this experience familiarize me with Pine Tree Farmstead, it was a fun way to foreshadow the atmosphere to be felt by guests and the couple on their big day.
We began shooting at the barn site, and eventually moved into the adorable downtown New Prague, where the couple sipped hot chocolate (it was chilly!) and I photographed their conversation.
I’m so excited to share a sneak peak of the photos from Jake and Lauren’s session. It was amazing to finally meet the two of them–Jake claimed he never smiles with his teeth for pictures. I’m glad Lauren and I could work together to get a few big, genuine smiles out of him.
