I am so excited to share this blog post with you! Not only is this engagement session of two of my favorite people, it also takes place in one of my favorite places! It took a lot of self-control on my part not to post these photos as soon as they were taken. Today, Lauren and Matt’s coastal Maine engagement session is finally on the blog!!!
Lauren was my first friend. She’s my older cousin, having been born 12 days before me, and from the time we were babies we did everything together. When I was about three, my mom asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I had two answers: Princess Jasmine and Cousin Lauren. While neither of those options worked out, it gives you a sense of how much I love and admire this lady!
Lauren started dating Matt over 6 years ago, and he’s been a part of our family ever since. Last December, Matt took Lauren on a trip to Disney World. We all knew something was up and were so thrilled when they came back engaged! Lauren was the happiest I’ve ever seen her and it made the Christmas season even more special.
Every year my dad’s family rents two cottages in Maine for a week. It’s one of the few times a year that all (or most) of the cousins get together. This year I asked Lauren and Matt if they wanted to do some engagement photos while we were there. I was so thrilled when they said yes!
Lauren and I both LOVE the lighthouse at Pemaquid Point, so that was the logical place to go! We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful evening! The temperature was perfect, there was a slight breeze, the fog that had covered the area for two days finally lifted, and the lighting was soft and glowing! Lauren and Matt were natural models and looked absolutely stunning!
I am so in love with how these images turned out! Here are some of my favorites from their coastal Maine engagement session!
