Meet my co-worker (and friend) Lauren and her future man-friend-for-life, Wil. I met Lauren through my day job. She started with us a last year and she has made a great addition to our crew; I can hear her laugh all the way down the hall:)
A couple of months ago, we had this conversation:
Lauren: “So, I hear you take pictures.”
Lauren: “Would you like to do my wedding photography?”
Ha! I know, riveting conversation on my part. Honestly, I was a little taken aback. I’ve never photographed a wedding before, but I certainly wasn’t going to let this opportunity pass me by.
Lauren and Wil are getting married at Dara’s Garden in South Knoxville. Dara’s Garden is a beautiful, 20-acre property filled with a rose garden, fountains, and even an old barn. Since this setting is a little rural, I thought to take them out to the Old City in Knoxville and get some more urban engagement pictures. I also wanted to get some engagement pictures to get to know Lauren (and Wil) outside of the work setting.
We started out upstairs at Barley’s with a couple of beers, and we slowly ventured out to Jackson Avenue and to the silos along the train tracks. I could tell that Wil was a little hesitant when we first started our picture taking extravaganza, but by the end we were having a good-ole time. The final pictures crack me up. Can I get an “hallelujah!” that picture taking was over?! Ha!
To Lauren and Wil: I look forward to taking more pictures at your wedding in June! It’s gonna be a great time!
