A Big Sur proposal love story. You have no idea how excited we are for these two! If you’re a frequent reader to our blog, you’re probably saying to yourself you’ve seen these two before, and multiple times. Back in early 2016 we partnered with Pottery Barn and Epiphany Boutique and put on a runway show. Even though Lauryn was only a friend of a bride attending, she won the raffle for a portrait session with us, and was super excited! A few months later when when we were planning our workshop, we couldn’t think of a more perfect couple to model for us, so they were back on the blog again, this time in wedding attire.
Fast forward a year and they were both graduating collage together, we snapped a few cap and gown portraits of them, but what Lauryn didn’t know was that we were already planning a her surprise proposal with Mitch! We planned a styled photo shoot and asked if they wouldn’t mind being our “models” again, and I’m pretty sure Lauryn said yes before we had completed our sentence! Let’s just say she was a wee bit excited!
We met along the coast of Big Sur, the sun was shinning, the sound of waves crashing, with flocks of pelicans flying overhead. We started with couples portraits, then captured a few solos of Lauryn facing the ocean. We had Mitch slowly inch his way way closer to her, and as she turned around, he was down on one knee! Perfection! There were tears, there were giggles, there were sequels of excitement, and that was just from Rachel and I! Okay, a little from Lauryn and Mitch too. This session ended up so perfect, How He Asked featured it as well! Congrats you two and we cannot wait to capture your 2019 wedding!

MEET LAURA & RACHEL
Together, we have worked in the wedding industry for over a decade, and make up one incredibly unique mother-daughter fine art wedding photography team. We have documented weddings from the breathtaking West Coast, to the historic East, and have had our work published internationally both in print and online. Our wanderlust hearts have taken us all over the country, capturing love stories, and visiting quaint hometown coffee shops along the way, and even though we've spent most of our lives in a nautical California town, we now call South Carolina home, expanding to the low country of Charleston. We are photographers, directors, curators, and most of all, storytellers for your wedding.
And WE can't wait to get to know you!
Oh this is just so beautiful!!
OH my goodness, they are so beautiful together! <3 I love these pictures of them, it captures so much joy!
