Lauren and Richie met online back in 2009. They love to spend time outdoors - canoeing, hiking, playing with their dogs, and going to theme parks. They also enjoy going to concerts, watching movies, and working out. Richie proposed to Lauren during dinner at The Black Hen Restaurant in downtown Blacksburg.
We started off their session at the Duck Pond at Virginia Tech, then worked our way through the Hahn Horticulture Garden, and Lane Stadium. In case you have never tried to take photos at Lane Stadium, it is a little tricky to get in there, particularly on weekends... but for whatever reason, the Hokie Bird Gods left the gate to the tunnel open for us to get out on the field which I'm pretty sure was a dream come true for Lauren and Richie. I had so much fun working with them, they let me act up and say bad words, and we chased a baby duck together! We also share a mutual appreciation for magnolia trees and the string lights in the horticulture garden.
