For a little bit of background on this session, here is the story about how they first met:
"Merrill and I met at a 3 day Phish festival up in Maine called "IT", there were over 80,000 people there! I was living in AZ at the time and Merrill lived in Dana Point California. On the 3rd day of the festival (I had lost all my friends that I came with at this point) I was walking around by myself. Merrill had a water bottle that had lemons wedges stuck in it, so he randomly came up to me and asked me if i could get them out for him, and I did. So we started to talk for a while and we discovered that he lived a couple blocks from my mom's summer house in Dana Point. I spent all my summers at this house since I was in High School so we thought "what a small world!". We ended up keeping in touch over the phone when we got back home. Then we visited each other a couple times and started realizing that this could be more than a fling, so he decided to move out to Arizona so we could give it a try and see what happens. Five years later here we are!!! I always said I needed to marry a guy who loved music just as much as I do, so it couldn't have worked out better to meet him at a Phish concert!! We have had so many great adventures together, we really are best friends!!!"
Lauren and Merrill are a super-vibrant, fun-loving couple. So for this session, I scouted out some cool colorful urbanscapes. L&M also have an intense love and respect for nature so we wrapped the session up near Papago Park at sunset. They spent a Summer traveling in the van featured in a few of the images, so you can imagine there's a lot of love for that car.
Thanks for your great energy and fun-loving spirit!! (oh, and for that Tequila shot at Coach House ;-)
And what engagement session wouldn't be complete without a tequila shot at the Coach House?!
