Meet Megan & Andy! Megan is another one of my beautiful cousins that is gracing the blog this week! (I guess I’m getting old since all of my younger cousins are getting married! ;)) Megan & Andy chose to do their engagement session at our Grandparent’s famous farm! I’ve done a number sessions there now and it’s such an amazing location. Thanks Grandma & Grandpa for letting us shoot there and home-cooking us a meal when we were done at 9:00p! Andy brought along his very awesome truck for our session, which he just inherited from his Grandfather. His Grandfather actually bought it brand new in 1978. At the end of the session Andy let me drive the truck and it was first time driving a stick on the column. Very fun!

Jill Olson - I LOVE these! Megan is so beautiful!

Megan M - I love every one of these!!! You did an awesome job Laura!

Laura - Thanks cousins! Yes, Jill, I agree, Megan looks stunning! Did you see Alicia & Michael’s pics below! :-) Beautiful family we have! :-)

Lynn (Andy's siser) - I love the photos! You two are such a beautiful couple, and the pictures capture your personalities so well!!



Aurora is an extremely talented designer and all-around fabulous gal. She dreamed up my branding design and brought my vision for my business to life. Check out her work here. I was so thrilled when Aurora asked me to capture her and her husband’s yearly anniversary session. I knew Aurora would dream up an amazing shoot and when she sent me an inspiration board she had created, I was in love. I have worked with Aurora many times in the past, but it was exciting to meet her other half! :-) These two are so in love and have share such a connection. Their giddy love reminds me of newlyweds! Thank you Aurora & Brian for allowing me to document another year in your lives.
