I’ve had the honor of shooting at Cannon Green in Charleston, SC multiple times this year and I love it more and more with every wedding that I shoot there! Lauren and Shane got married there this spring and their wedding day was a dream. The weather was bright and breezy and their “First Look” on Chalmers street was absolutely breathtaking. Read more about their story below!
Lauren and Shane met each other in their very first class at SCAD together! Lauren said she could remember it like it was yesterday. They both shared the mutual connection of being two New Yorkers in Georgia for the first time — and were so excited about all that was ahead in their college years in beautiful Savannah. After a year of always bumping into each other and lots of small talk during those run-ins, one of Lauren’s best friends met Shane separately in a film class of his. He invited Shane to hangout with them one night and they ended up becoming really good friends. Lauren was actually dating someone else at the time - that ended, and Shane swooped in shortly after! Apparently they always had a crush on each other but the timing was never right until they both realized it was long overdue to finally give it a shot. January 2019 marks 10 years of us being together and they wouldn't have it any other way!
When I asked what they loved most about each other Lauren said she love’s Shane's passion. Passion for his family, passion for his work, passion for our partnership. She said “He's always pushing me to better myself in every way possible, even though he wholeheartedly accepts and loves me as I am in this moment and as I've been every moment before. We've grown so much together this last decade — we're still growing, and a big reason why is because he challenges me and believes in me. I hope we never stop growing.”
Shane shared with me that “It's the little things I see in Lauren that I love and think about most often. I'm talking about her bright glowing smile, her sweet, kind demeanor towards others. Then there is her world class sense of humor that I can always share a laugh with. On the serious side her sharp intellect always keeps my idiot tendencies in check (I need this). And finally she has a style and beauty that I think is so authentic and reflects her character so well that I think is rare to find.”
These two’s story has been 10 years in the making and I could not be more honored to be document this season of their life! Check out some of my favorite moments from their Cannon Green Wedding.
