Mike and Lauren are both dedicated teachers who met in their Graduate School. They lived in Kazakhstan for a couple of years and traveled the world together. They are planning to get married in Saratoga Spring in 2016, because Lauren grew up in the Bay Area. Like almost every couple that I photographed, they were so nervous about the shoot. We talked prior the session and I gave them assurance that they can be themselves, in fact that’s what I really want them to do, because I’d like to capture who they really are. Seemed that my assurance was working because they were having fun and I only have to direct them very little in the 2 hours we were out. They had a great laugh and were feeling at ease during the entire shoot. Here are a few images from the 2 hour engagement session at Roaring Camp. We even managed to catch the beautiful sunset near the Santa Cruz marina.
