I have known Lauren for years. She is actually the person that taught me how to use a camera. Lauren was the yearbook photo editor for the high school yearbook before me. She inspired me to not only become a better photographer, but I also learned so much about who I wanted to be as a person through our friendship.
During Lauren’s senior year of high school, my sophomore year, she started seeing Ben. I could already see a fire in her eyes when she spoke of him. She would tell me little details about him in the most tender, genuine voice. 4 Years later, here we are! Lauren and Ben have pursuing one another through countless months of long distance. Lauren has been attending the University of Arkansas while Ben is a U.S. Marine. Their love has endured so much.
It was such an honor to photograph them while Ben was home for a few days.
