Lauren is the younger sister of Kellie, a bride I had the great pleasure of photographing two years ago. I was also lucky enough to photograph her cousin’s wedding after Kellie’s – and then Lauren got engaged!!

I remembered Lauren as this sweet, beautiful woman who was really close with her sister. And when we met to discuss her wedding and portrait, she had some really fun ideas for the shoot, and she was even prettier and sweeter than I remembered :)

We went to The Red Room, in Raleigh, and they were kind enough to let us turn their restaurant into our personal studio…

This was Lauren’s choice for her bridal portrait – it had a great platinum feel when it was printed as a wall portrait…

Red & gold, yummmm……

Then we went outside for a little wind….

Did I mention the wind???

Love this one!

And one of my very favorite photographs from (big sister) Kellie’s bridal portrait…

Hmmmm – does beauty run in this family or what??
