Engagement Photos, A Love Story with Lauren and Connor

Future bride and groom kiss during their engagement photos at the Historic Properties in Halifax NS.

Engagement photos and a love story with Lauren and Connor. They met through an environmental recreation center. She was 13 and Connor was 15 at the time. They were participants in some of the programs at the center. Over the years they grew up through the rec center and eventually worked as staff at the programs like running camps together. They became friends outside of work first, and eventually started dating nine years ago. Lauren and Connor’s relationship started out as a few little first moves from each of them! He suggested watching Star Wars together sometime (which she still have never seen), while Lauren got nervous and invited friends to join them. Months later she asked him on a first date, to a meeting at a coffee house that her friends were organizing. Shortly after, he initiated their first kiss!

How was the Question Popped?

Both of them have always been very serious about their relationship. Making it clear to each other, they saw each other as potential life partners. They both wanted to take the relationship to the next level and Connor thought that Lauren should pick out a ring. Connor initiated plans for a hike and picnic in Fleming Park. The same park where the rec center they met at is located. When they both sat down to eat, he pulled a pill bottle with a homemade label out of his bag. He then presented it to Lauren who is a pharmacist. The ring was inside! 

The Engagement Photos

Lauren and Connor chose the Historic Properties for their engagement photos because they both love Halifax and the old architecture. They will be getting married in Fleming Park in 2021. Fleming park has a very park feel so they decided to go for engagement photos that would contrast their nature-themed wedding photos. Without further adhue here are their 10 choices from their engagement shoot.

Their Advice for Newly Engaged Couples

Connor says “Don’t get too concerned about the wedding details – if you have the right person your wedding will barely matter.”

We’re still figuring out being an engaged couple and I’m not sure about advice to be honest! Connor said it well above. I would say it was definitely helpful to have a discussion beforehand about what you both want out of the relationship/engagement, even if it means less of a surprise for the engagement. I had a lot of fun picking out my top 3 rings; it made it easier for Connor and it meant that I got a ring I really liked! I would also say that it’s been nice having a long time between engagement and wedding (1 year and 9 months for us) to make time for planning the wedding.
