Brooke and Kevin | Associate Engagement Session | Laurelwood Arboretum

Hi Guys!! This is Sydney, Laura’s associate photographer! We are sooo excited to announce the associate program so that we can serve even more people through the Laura Lee Photography experience!! 

I had my first engagement session ever with Brooke and Kevin and it lit my heart on fire! It was sooo much fun. I can’t wait to share all the details with you guys. Being able to capture memories that will last a lifetime is such an amazing feeling! 

Brooke and Kevin met in Chicago. She had just moved to the area to complete her 4th year of medical school training. They met at a “family brunch” which is a big group of their friends having brunch on the weekends. One of Brooke’s good friends Andrew brought Kevin to one of these family brunches. Although sparks didn’t fly the first time they met they sure did a few weeks later at another family brunch. How stinkin cute?! 

After meeting at a few family brunches and getting to know eachother Kevin asked Brooke to come over for dinner. It was supposed to be Brooke, Kevin and their mutual friend Drew. BUT at the last minute Drew had another obligation so it was just Brooke and Kevin. The rest is history! 

Brooke and Kevin had a beautiful engagement session at Laurelwood Arboretum in Wayne, NJ last month and let me tell you, there is no better feeling than getting to share in celebrating the love story of these two love birds! Right from the beginning I knew they were going to be so much fun to be around and to work with. 

They were seriously such naturals at posing! I rarely had to prompt them. Their silliness is what made the session so special and their photos unique to them. Kevin makes Brooke laugh so much and it’s so cute to watch! While walking around the arboretum we saw sooo many deer! A deer came so close to us it was crazy! Kevin loves loves loves dogs. Every dog we passed he pointed out and said hello to (me being the animal lover I am did the same thing lol!). Brooke said Kevin always asks for a puppy for Christmas and this year might be the year his Christmas dream comes true! 

Brooke and Kevin have a love for coffee. They brought their own coffee and cute coffee cups to enjoy while we were surrounded by such beauty! I sat them on a bench to get a couple photos and they just soaked up the moment. It was SO stinkin’ cute! They have a love for running as well. They enjoy long trail runs which is so cool to me! Kevin proposed to Brooke on one of these runs. It makes every run more special now and has so much more meaning! 

I cannot tell you enough wonderful things about these two. Their energy is so amazing, so easy going and relaxed. You can tell they are so comfortable with one another and love each other so much! Anything that allows them to enjoy each other’s company makes them happy.

I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to start off my career! Thank you Brooke and Kevin for allowing me to capture such a special time in your life. I can’t wait until your wedding, it’s going to be so much fun! <3
