About the Couple
Lauren and Zack grew up in the same hometown and had mutual friends through high school and college. With both of them living in the city, the two kept crossing paths and their inevitable love story began.
In October 2019, Lauren and Zack traveled to California where they explored San Francisco, Napa Valley, Monterey, Big Sur, and Yosemite National Park. After waiting all week for the “perfect moment”, Zack proposed on the last day of their trip in Yosemite Valley during a hike with a beautiful mountainous backdrop.
About the Session
The engagement session took place at the Hartwood Acres Mansion, which resembles a real-life fairytale castle. Lauren and Zack are planning an elegant wedding with a rustic twist featuring neutral hues and classic attire, so the setting was a perfect fit.
Their blue-eyed pup, Indy, was a key part of their photos – although, she does tend to steal the show! At the end of the session, Lauren and Zack popped a bottle of champagne and clinked flutes to celebrate their upcoming events.
