Lauren + Joe’s City and Rural E-Session | Buffalo Wedding Photography

As most of our clients and soon-to-be clients know, we like to push the envelope at Phenomenon Events & Productions. Ryan + Tasha had the pleasure of tearing that envelope open and having a blast with Lauren and Joe.

Here’s their story:

Going back to where we met for our engagement photos was something we’ve wanted to do ever since we got engaged. We met by chance, back in 2007 at a Thursday In The Square concert. Lauren went to the square with some of her friends, and Joe went down with some of his closest friends. It just so happened that one of Lauren’s friends knew of Joe’s friends and our two groups merged together for the rest of the concert, and that’s where the love started! Five years later, Joe and Lauren have tackled two years of a long distance relationship, traveled the world, adopted a dog Maggie (who is the other love of their lives), and most recently bought a house together! Joe’s laid back “go with the flow” personality compliments Lauren’s type-A organized personality perfectly. The two are truly a match made in heaven. One could say that Lauren was waiting patiently for a ring (hehe), and then on New Year’s Eve it happened. Joe proposed right after the clock struck midnight as we rang in 2012 at the Buffalo Downtown Ball Drop by the Electric Tower! The night was absolutely magical, and as the fireworks went off Joe said he wanted to start the new year off the right way and slipped the ring on Lauren’s finger! Five minutes later, after a completely hysterical cry, Lauren said “YES!” We are so excited to have our wedding at the new Hotel Lafayette, and return yet again, to where we first met!
