Lauren and Ben are getting married this weekend! They are the most adorable couple and I am obsessed with their Musical Outdoor Engagement Session. I have known Lauren for years, so getting to know them as a couple was incredible. I even learned about a special musical instrument they brought along with them that Ben handmade for Lauren. For their session, we went to Dickson Azalea Park near Thorton Park in downtown Orlando. If you have not been there, you should check it out because it is gorgeous.
So, I met Lauren back when she was 19 years old! We used to work together back in my Trane days. It’s been a few moons, but now I am shooting her wedding! Time flies. We have been friends for so long and we have kept in touch throughout the years, so I am really excited for their wedding day.
On to their engagement session, which I adore so much. They made cute little boats with their wedding date and initials. The trees were gorgeous and we had a lot of laughs whenever someone would almost fall out of them. They are hilarious, so naturally I caught a lot laughing photos.
My favorite part of their session was when Lauren pulled out a ukulele that Ben made for her from scratch. He used an old cigar box for the body and fixed it up to become a truly unique ukulele. They say they do not know how to play and only do so for fun over drinks, but they sounded really good to me.
This engagement is really special to me, because I have such a long connection to Lauren. They are so stinkin cute together! I am looking forward to this weekend, because I know their wedding is going to be amazing. I do not know if they will breakout their musical instruments, though. Although a repeat performance of their engagement session tunes would be great to hear! Until their wedding, I will leave you all with these gorgeous photos from their Musical Outdoor Engagement Session.
