Sarah Yates

A week before Christmas, I was photographing a beautiful proposal in Laguna Beach, CA. When I got to the proposal site, I met Lauren and Sam, who were setting it up for their friends. Lauren and I chatted a bit and honestly, it felt like I knew her…but I wasn’t sure how. Later, I found out that we not only grew up in the same city, but at the same church—just a few years apart.

So when I was in Minnesota and there was fresh snow on the ground, I gave Lauren and Sam a call and within an hour, we were taking beautiful photographs in the snow.

Lauren and Sam are both fun-loving, goofy, kind and so dang friendly. Sam’s laughter is contagious and Lauren’s drive in life is inspirational. We lost track of time because we were having so much fun! Take look at their love captured in the images below.

But above all, I always include my #1 thing NOT to wear to an engagement session.
