Lauren and Graham started dating in high school. When Graham graduated (two years before Lauren would) and enlisted in the Navy, they broke up. Graham went to Japan; Lauren became a nurse. A few years later, they found each other again, got back together, and later this year, they're getting married. It's one of my favorite kinds of love stories: one that takes a little time to develop, but culminates in a very happy ending.
Since their relationship started in Wake Forest, where they both grew up, it made perfect sense for us to go back there for their engagement session. Graham and Lauren are so naturally affectionate with one another that Michael and I hardly had to give them any direction--and I'm sure it helped them to cuddle up against the February wind and cold. The resulting images are just as adorable as Lauren and Graham are themselves. Check them out below! (More on Facebook.)
