There are times that I leave a shoot and it takes every ounce of energy I have not to shout out loud or silently, but emphatically, fist pump from excitement. This was one of those sessions. Everything about it, from the love shared between Lauren and Dmitriy, to the incredibly winter sun, have me excited to share with the world.

Lauren and Dmitriy are so incredibly wonderful. They are filled with such a huge amount of love for each other and energy for life that simply being near them made me a happier person. And not only were they up for anything, they came to their shoot with incredible ideas of their own.  Those balloons?  Lauren’s idea.  Bringing their deliciously smoosh faced pup?  Also a brilliant Lauren idea.  All around, they were a blast.  And Lauren, you’re incredibly gorgeous, inside and out.

I have a feeling that their wedding will be filled so much genuine emotion that it will be nothing short of amazing.   Plus, they are working with Angela from Lulu Events.  And shes amazing herself.

There were so many incredible photos to choose from, but here are a few of my favorites.
