Jennifer and Lauren chose the St. Benedict Monastery as the location for their engagement photos. It was at the labyrinth behind the main buildings that Lauren had proposed to Jennifer. A few days before the shoot, Jennifer told us that she had decided to surprise Lauren on the day of the photos with a proposal of her own. We were, of course, excited about the opportunity to “hide” and capture that beautiful moment.

Fast-forward to the day of the shoot. After Jennifer proposed to a very surprised Lauren, they replayed a special moment in their courtship and walked through the labyrinth to its center. Once there, Lauren got down on one knee and recreated the moment when she popped the question.

We had brought them champagne, so we all ended the shoot with a toast to them!
