Lauren and Trevor's beautiful Oakland engagement session was a genuine pleasure for me. These two are funny, easygoing and became comfortable in front of the camera quickly. We were gifted with great weather and pretty sunlight, even though we were deep in the Oakland Hills.
When Trevor first emailed me, I immediately knew I wanted to photograph him and his fiancée, Lauren. I won't embarrass Trevor here with all the nerdy things we discovered we had in common, but it definitely made our first meeting over beers really fun. Speaking of that meeting, since I didn't know what either of them looked like, Trevor sent me a text message that read, "I'm wearing the most therapist sweater ever." And there he was with Lauren in a sea of hipsteriffic tech nerds: glasses, sweater and a friendly look on his face that said, "Go ahead and lay on the couch and tell me all your problems."
These two lovebirds met online at a pretty crazy time in their lives. Lauren had a bad leg injury that kept her in crutches for some time, and Trevor was living in a Zen Center. But they made it through those small hurdles and fell in love, and now they're getting married in Ukiah this September!
I just want to say thanks to Lauren and Trevor for being awesome, fun and beautiful people. You both looked great for your engagement shoot, especially with Lauren's flowy hair and pretty dress. I can't wait to shoot your wedding and party!
