Downtown Durham Engagement Photographers
Lauren + Murray
We met up with Lauren and Murray at Ponysaurus Brewing for a few drinks and photos before roaming through downtown Durham for their engagement session. This was a really fun engagement session for us because we’ve known Lauren socially for a few years now, and we’ve been able to witness her relationship with Murray blossom a bit. It wasn’t that long ago that she was cooking dinner for us and talking about the major crush she had on her super cute boss! 🙂
These two really are one of the sweetest couples! We can’t wait to photograph their Rickhouse wedding later this fall! Less than 4 months to go, guys!!
How did you and Murray meet?
“We met while working at Washington Duke Inn. He was my boss!”
What do you love most about Lauren?
“Her sunshine personality and smile were the first things that had me hooked. Upon getting to know her, I knew she was the one. Her passion and drive, coupled with her imagination and wit proved to me that she was the whole package! She makes me better and makes me want to be better for our forever.”
What do you admire most in Murray?
“His dedication and passion for his work is what really caught my attention. He is also quite handsome. After getting to know him, I realized he’s one of the most caring and genuine people I’ve ever known. He’s the best friend I’ve ever had! Every time I look at him, I think to myself, ‘I’m the luckiest gal because I get to spend forever with him.'”
Tell us about your first date!
“I asked him out for drinks on St. Patty’s Day. It only took me a year to ask! I nabbed my Irish man on his holiday! 🙂 We went to 5850 Bistro, and we’ve been smitten ever since.”
How did Murray propose to you?
“Murray proposed at Mystery Brewing after setting it up for me to brew my very own beer recipe with Erik Lars Meyers (owner and brewmaster of Mystery, and President of the NC Brewers Guild.) He proposed after we wrapped up the whole brewing process!”
What’s your favorite way to spend the day together?
“We Netflix and Chill on our days off together, along with our fur babies, Garvin (the cat), Ladybyrd, and Halo (the dogs.) We frequent Ponysaurus Brewing. We also enjoy visiting with our families. Since we’re so busy with work, time with our families is very valuable to us.
