Introducing the sweetest couple of Grand Rapids, Lauren + Nate! These two were both texting each other while having a night out in Grand Rapids with their close friends before they realized they were are the same bar! Nate said hello and they’ve been inseparable since (with a lot of laughs along the way).
When Lauren had to move to Indianapolis for work, that didn’t stop them from seeing each other. In fact, Nate spent almost every weekend visiting her! True love right there!! One big milestone they’ve already shared together is getting their first pup! Lauren brought Ollie home and told Nate it was just a test, he knew right away Ollie was already going to be part of their family.
Lauren + Nate love to visit his family in London every year. They also like to include another fun location while they’re already ‘across the pond’. On one of these fun bonus locations, they were in Ireland exploring a rainy and windy day at the Cliffs of Moher. Lauren kept asking Nate why he was wearing his good shoes while hiking as they were getting covered in mud and sliding all over. Soaking wet, Nate got down on one knee and Lauren thought it couldn’t have been more perfect! It sounded like something straight out of a romance film if you ask me! The next day, they arrived in London to celebrate with his family!
This session had a lot of firsts for me; first rooftop session, first champagne pop, first Grand Rapids session…and Lauren + Nate are the perfect couple to have shared it with! These two were absolutely the sweetest to photograph and our time together flew by way too fast, I didn’t want it to end! I am so excited for their May wedding in downtown Grand Rapids, it’s going to be so much fun!!
