Engagement Photographer: Heather Lauffer for Tamara Lackey Photography Location: Chapel Hill Known to many as Miss Sprint Cup and recognized as one of NASCAR’s 50 Most Beautiful People, Monica Palumbo is known by those closest to her as “the sweetest girl you will ever meet.”  I first met Monica about 10 years ago and was struck by her genuine charm and warm demeanor.  Even my oldest son (he’s 6) is head-over-heels for her, with an autographed picture of her in his room! When Monica asked me to photograph her engagement pictures, I was thrilled to meet the one who had captured her heart…Rick was as equally amazing and I felt I had known him forever… Strolling through the streets of Franklin St., we laughed, told stories, made silly faces…and captured the most beautiful images of a young couple in love…thank you Monica and Rick for a wonderful evening!
