Lauren & Jon

Alrighty then, here are some of my favorites from last weekends awesome engagement session with Jon & Lauren. A little back story on these two, I actually went to business college at the University of Arizona with both Jon and his brother Jeff. I’ve not only partied with these guys, but spent the better part of almost 2 solid years working alongside them in pretty much every course we had in business school. Needless to say, you couldn’t ask to be surrounded by more genuine, nice guys, and that friendship continued far after school. Jon & Jeff both moved back to their home state of Cali after graduation and when I randomly ended up in Los Angeles a few years ago, I immediately called up the boys to see if they wanted to get together. That night Jeff wasn’t able to make it out, but Jon said he’d meet me and also told me he’d be bringing his new girlfriend, Lauren. Being one of the first people I met upon my move to LA, I was pretty excited to see who this girl was, especially since Jon’s one of my boys, hahaha. Well I wasn’t disappointed, Lauren was a complete sweetheart and the chemistry between the two of them, even at the early stages of their relationship, was totally obvious, Jon got lucky for sure ;) Over the last 2 years since my move in LA, I’ve had the pleasure of watching the two of them grow together and getting a text from Jon a few minutes after his proposal couldn’t have made me happier. I absolutely love these two and cannot wait to party it up at their wedding next year. Anyways, enough writing, on to the photos!

Oh! I do need to give a HUGE shout-out to my girl Melissa Ann for her killer makeup job, if you’re looking for some quality airbrush makeup work (my favorite by far, brides: Airbrush is THE way to go) definitely make sure to check out Melissa Ann at her website HERE!

Oh and one more thing, lol. The Venice Canals were definitely not a random choice for photos, this is actually were Jon proposed to Lauren, and one of their favorite spots in LA, not only for the scenery, but for the ducks too!
