I felt like I knew Lauren before we ever met. And I loved her from the get go. She was easy going, super organized, and trusting in our abilities as photographers. It was a perfect match! We had texted and planned for her engagement session to be at Harmony Gardens in Deleon Springs, FL. As the date got closer we figured Florida was going to be Florida and it was going to rain. Cancel or not to cancel, that was the question. I assured her as long as they were down to get a little wet we would proceed as normal. We talked about the expectations of all rain situations we could encounter and we were ready for the romantic walk in a light sprinkle, or the famous "Notebook Kiss" in torrential downpour. And after hearing their story I was not surprised by their willingness to take whatever the session threw at us. You see, Cameron gave Lauren her first kiss on her 13th birthday <3 Seriously, how romantic?! They met when they were 12 at the YMCA summer camp and dated on and off up until high school graduation, when they thought that was where their story would end. Cameron went off to UCF while Lauren went to Rollins and eventually they reconnected right before Lauren's senior year was over. She was to head off to London and study for four months abroad and even that didn't keep them apart. They talked everyday and he was waiting for her at the airport when she returned and they have been together ever since. As avid Orlando City Soccer fans, it was only right that after they changed out of their fancy getup, they put their jerseys and walked through the gardens! Check them out!
