I was so happy when Lauren and Rory first connected with me a few months ago about capturing their 2018 wedding. First reason being, Lauren was so sweet and excited when she contacted me and we chatted on the phone – the second being, Rory is an old classmate of mine from high school. We both attended Wahlert high school in Iowa. I knew Rory from a few extra curricular activities including band. Through the power of Facebook we were able to keep in touch. Rory saw that I was a wedding photographer and thus reached out to me about documenting their special day. It was truly an honor to be considered, and I was so excited they chose Marc and I.
After dating Lauren for 5 years, Rory came up with a clever way to ask her to be his wife. They both love sci-fi and comic – so with the use of a card game which makes up comic book strips, the story ended with “will you marry me?”. It was the perfect way to ask Lauren to share his life. We had such a wonderful time at their Quad City engagement session. It gave Rory and I a chance to catch up on life since leaving high school and it gave Lauren and I a chance to chat all about their wedding day plans.
These two have a fun, sweet relationship, and the love for each other was effortlessly expressed in their engagement session. Here are a few favorites from that day.
