Lauren and Ty LOVE the historic elegance of Charleston and grew up around DC, so it was a no-brainer to shoot Old Town Alexandria engagement photos to capture their love!
Lauren and Ty have know each other since, get this… middle school! They always knew of one another, but it wasn’t until a post high school reunion of sorts, that brought them together.
Lauren and Ty attended the same middle school, high school, and college. Always knowing of each other, but never got to chatting until junior year at George Mason University. Ty always made an impression on Lauren. Lauren specifically remembers Ty holding the cafeteria door open for her one day during freshman year and smiling at her. Ty doesn’t remember this, but his kindness and smile made an impression on Lauren.
All those years Lauren and Ty had a mutual friend who one day threw a little gathering during Spring Break 2013. Lauren decided to go even through she thought she might feel awkward after not seeing many classmates since high school.
Lauren asked a friend to play “safety” in case she needed someone to talk to. Her safety didn’t show up for HOURS, which allowed Lauren to step outside of her comfort zone and be Pictionary teammates with Ty. By the time her safety showed up, Lauren and Ty were already hitting it off.
Lauren describes the night she met Ty as “One of those instant attraction, goo-goo-eyed, deals. I forever thank Caleb for inviting me that night!”
We shot their Old Town Alexandria engagement photos during the Cherry Blossom bloom in April. Old Town Alexandria engagement photos are an excellent alternative to shooting on the Mall during the cherry blossom bloom.
Stay tuned for Lauren and Ty’s amazing wedding photos at Silverbrook Farm B&B.
