CELEBRATING LAUREN & JAKE’S ENGAGEMENT IN FLOWERY BRANCH, GA
I had SO much fun capturing Lauren and Jake’s engaged bliss in Flowery Branch, GA! These two are incredibly outdoorsy and their Williams Mill Greenspace engagement photos perfectly showcased their passion for nature. Lauren and Jake love hunting and being outdoors with their multiple dogs! They even brought their oldest pup to the engagement session since he was around before they met!
In addition to spending time outdoors together, Lauren and Jake enjoy traveling to different beaches and cheering on the Braves and Georgia Tech. As Lauren says, “we enjoy everything we do together. We still laugh and play like the first day we met!” How sweet!
HOW THEY MET
Lauren and Jake met while Jake was attending the police academy nearly six years ago. Lauren went with her sister, Misty, to visit Misty’s husband, Van, who was also attending the academy. Lauren and Jake met at the Best Western in Athens, and he asked Lauren for her number. She immediately had an attraction to him the moment she saw him! Lauren never believed in love at first sight until she met Jake. She just had a gut feeling that she needed Jake in her life! She prayed about it and followed her gut, and the two started dating in 2013.
HOW HE ASKED
Jake proposed while the two were on vacation in St. George Island in Florida. Lauren thought it was weird when her dad and stepmom magically arrived during their vacation and knew something was up! They all took family pictures on the beach together and Jake asked Lauren to marry him in front of her parents. She said yes, and the two are so excited to be getting married at Grant Hill Farms next April!
WILLIAMS MILL GREENSPACE ENGAGEMENT SESSION
The timing of Jake and Lauren’s Williams Mill Greenspace engagement photos was perfect! Lauren loves greenery, and we were able to sneak their session in right at the end of summer before the leaves changed. The lush greens made for an absolutely amazing backdrop and Lauren and Jake’s loving smiles and sweet laughter shone through in every photo!
When I asked them to slow dance together, they pulled out Jake’s phone to play their first dance song! We all laughed while they struggled to get good reception to play it, but once they did, it was so cute!
