Jack & Lauren | Calgary Charbar Wedding

I met Lauren originally over Skype when she was in search of a wedding photographer. You see she lives in Toronto and at the time her fiance Jack was living in Boston! They had decided to get married in Calgary where Jack was originally from. They have been doing long-distance for over 5 years. They are both incredibly driven and passionate about what they do and very supportive in each others dreams. 

I instantly noticed Laurens fun loving nature and her gentleness. She is incredibly kind. I love their story especially because it reminds me of Landon and I. Lauren was originally not totally in to Jack she actually has said she was intimidated by him and thought he was 'very smart.'  It wasn't until she was set up to do a group project with him that she realized that he was also goofy and a riot. They quickly blossomed a friendship in to a relationship. 

On their wedding day (and during their engagement session) It's impossible to keep these two from smiling or busting a laugh. They are incredibly silly, loving, and light hearted. You can see the strong friendship they have, they have such comfort and ease in each others company and they radiate joy. It's INSPIRING! They live in the moment and don't take things too seriously. As Jack said in his vows..."you are my favourite person." You can feel that when you are around them. 

I can not wait for these two to move in to their new home together in Toronto. Right now they are in India enjoying a month long honey-moon! They truly are adventurers and I hope they enjoy every second of finally being together in the same place. 

Congratulations Lauren and Jack! It was such an honour to be there on your wedding day and to laugh and cry alongside your family and friends.
