I’ll give you four reasons I had the best evening at Ponce City Market today. You’re looking at them! Admittedly, I’m a pushover when it comes to most kids. But these rugrats are just super sweet — and adorable, right?! I loved hanging out with their super chill rockstar parents, too. Anna and Ryan, I can’t wait to celebrate your marriage and your gorgeous family! It will be the intimate wedding of the century. More form this session coming soon, but in the meantime, enjoy this sneak peek…

These two are undeniable in simply every way! After just the few precious moments we’ve spent with Lauren and Heath already, we could not be more excited about their marriage and the amazing partnership they’re going to share for life! This day together was made even sweeter because Heath’s work (playing baseball for the Colorado Rockies franchise) keeps him on the road a lot while Lauren is finishing school closer to home. Despite the distance, these two — whom you’ll occasionally hear lovingly refer to each other as “Crush” and “Squirt” (so adorable!) — have so much going for them. Not the least of which is their amazing families, many of whom Phillip had the pleasure of spending an evening with to present these engagement portraits for the first time! We hope we captured even a fraction of the romance, beauty, tenderness, and fun (check out those windblown shots, right?!) that these two exude every moment. Here they are in their own words:
I (Lauren) was speaking at church after a summer camp in high school where Heath was in the audience and proceed to facebook message me afterwards to compliment my testimony. We met the following Wednesday night after youth group and the rest was history.
He is handsome, loves the Lord, and always making me laugh and smile. He’s selfless, has more self discipline and motivation than anyone I know, and cherishes family. He’s my best friend.
She’s a lover of the Lord, self-motivated and determined. She’s independent, gorgeous, simple (in a good way), cute, loving, and whole-hearted.

We loved every moment of Rachel and Isaac’s classic and elegant wedding day. If you know this fun-loving couple, you know that alongside the elegance was a whole lot of fun and laughter, too! We really began to appreciate and fall in love with their playfulness during their sweet engagement session.
With amazing friends and family at their sides, there was a very real sense that this is the beginning of a truly grand adventure. The details were just perfect, too — such a rich palette of plumb, blush, ivory and sage. Beautiful!
We’re so happy for you two, Rachel and Isaac! You have so much growth and joy ahead of you.
