After four months of build up, we were so excited to finally meet Lauren and Brian for their Sonoma Coast engagement session! Thomas and I love exploring new parts of California – and this was an area we hadn’t been to yet. It was a meaningful location for Lauren and Brian, as they got engaged on Goat Rock beach – so we were excited to adventure with them – and their pup, Bandit!
Lauren and Brian have such a fun love story – I love the way they described it to us. They met up in Washington state at a mutual friend’s wedding. They reconnected a few months later on a ski trip with friends up in Jackson Hole. Despite the fact that Brian was “geographically undesirable” (he was living in SF while Lauren was up in Seattle), Lauren knew that there was something deeper there and that they should pursue a relationship. In the summer of 2018, Lauren moved to the bay area so they could end their time of long distance.
The weekend before the pandemic really hit, Lauren and Brian were staying in Sonoma – wine tasting and exploring the area. They drove out to the beach (Goat Rock!) and Brian proposed to Lauren. I’m so happy we were able to head back to that area to capture this chapter of their lives together!
Lauren and Brian are getting married this October at Annadel Estate – one of our favorite venues!
Brian and Lauren, thank you so much for inviting us up to Sonoma for your engagement photos! I’m so thankful that the weather behaved (those clouds on the drive up were giving me some anxiety) and that we were able to include Bandit as well. You two are so sweet together and we can’t wait to celebrate with you again in a few months!
