Intimate at home engagement by Lauren Louise Photography


We have such a special engagement session to share with you brides and wedding lovers today! The lovely bride is no other than the fabulous Jenny Preston, one of our regular contributors and the genius behind Jenny Does Weddings. This intimate at home engagement session is totally unique and cozy — it’s almost like getting a glimpse into the life of Jenny and her now-husband Glen. We can’t put into words how fantastic this engagement shoot by Lauren Louise Photography is, so we’ll just leave it to Jenny to tell us more!

How did you choose the mood/theme of your engagement photos?
Lauren wanted to do something different, and we are best friends — so being in our PJs around her is pretty standard. Plus, we just bought our new home so it seemed like the perfect way to celebrate our love, friendship, and the major life moments we have enjoyed this year.
