Lauren and Chris


Chris and Lauren Square


We shot Lauren and Chriss by the Truckee River in downtown Reno, which if you live in Reno or if you’ve gone through any of my free engagement photos, you know, because we shoot a lot there. And if you’re looking for engagement photos, you could do a whole heck of a lot worse than having this beautiful river in your photos.

Sometimes Ken tries to get a couple to put on the smize, which is s look where you smile with your eyes, but not your mouth. And sometimes he just tries for a serious look. He tried with Chris, but if you look at the above photo, you’ll see that smile threatening to break out. I’m telling you, Lauren is one very lucky girl. Good looking as all get out and happy too. You can’t beat that.

Shooting Lauren and Chris was pure joy. Have you ever seen a smile like his. I like shooting happy people, because it just seems like their good mood rubs off on me. I guess I’m a little like an empath that way and that’s why I try not to be around grumpy or sad people too much if I can help it.

Sadly, sometimes some people who are in business for themselves have to deal with sour pusses, but wedding photographers don’t have that problem all that often. Mostly the people Ken and I work with are happy and in love.

But Chris was really, really happy. So much so that I think it’s the only mood he knows. Which is probably a good thing, because he’s in the service, as you can probably tell by the photos.

After the shoot was over, we were headed back across the river, when Chris all of a sudden picked Lauren up and pretended to throw her over. I had my camera up in an instant. Jeez, I said it in the paragraph above and I’m going to say it again. Lauren is one very lucky girl.
