She was ready to pack her bags and bid farewell to the city she knew all too well. The city she grew up in. She needed something new and a job opportunity in Chicago was just the thing she was looking for. A shift in direction. A fresh start. But something...something held her back just a little while longer. A few weeks later she met Bobby; the man who would one day become her husband and confidant. Bobby was new to the Tampa Bay area and as Lauren introduced him to the city she called home, she fell in love with it all over again. Same city, but this time, Bobby was in it. Call it whatever you want. Fate. Destiny. Divine appointment. What’s important is that they were led right to each other. Bobby gave Lauren the fresh start she needed and for Bobby--being in a new city, an unfamiliar place--home was wherever Lauren was. 

Bobby + Lauren, the love you both share is so palpable, and this day, this sweet day was evidence of that. A day of love and celebration that touched the lives of those who are blessed to be in your circle. Thank you for allowing James and I such honor to capture your wedding day. We wish you only the very best!
