Michael & Lauren: Engagement

This is an extra special engagement session post, because it’s my little brother & his fiancee. Michael is four years younger than I am, and I can’t believe he’ll be getting married this year! I was always his 2nd mom growing up. Not that he wanted me to be, but I played that role well. My grandma loves to tell the story of how I would try to force Michael to sit & listen to me read Bible lessons from Sunday School to him. I would get furious with him for wanting to play with his GI Joes during my lesson. Maybe all of my preaching paid off, because he’ll be graduating this year with a degree in theology ;)

I’m so excited for the wedding this fall. I did the engagement session for them, but my close friend, Ashley McCormick, will be handling the photo duties on the wedding day so that I can enjoy being a bridesmaid and spending the day with my family.

Michael & Lauren, I love you guys and can’t wait for the big day!

Just for fun, we’ll start with what I call Vintage Heidi & Michael. Gotta love the 80’s. I’ve always loved this kid! He used to be my “little” brother. Now he towers over me at about 6’4″. (See, Michael. There was a day when I was taller than you!)


Now here he is today with his fiancee :) This is Part One of their engagement session. We have big plans for a Part Two in a few weeks!
