Good morning, this anniversary shoot has so much vintage, retro chic goodness, I don't know where to start…

The location: a train station in Virginia, USA

The theme: vintage Americana ~ red, white & blue

He wore: his military uniform

She wore: a navy blue knee length skirt with bow print, pearls and red patent heels. Her platinum blonde hair was coiffed into a perfect chignon and she painted her lips the prettiest shade of pillar box red

They are: so sweet, loved up and madly in love, 5 years after they ‘just woke up one morning and decided to get married at the Justice of the Peace and then we went off to work.' Lauren explains ‘ I know it seems kind of crazy…we didn't need an extravagant wedding to prove our love to each other'.

Let's head back to a bygone era…


Don't you just love the way Rachel Brenke's photography tells a love story? So Beautiful!

Here is what Lauren had to say about their photoshoot:

Over the past 5 years I have thought about how great it would be to have professional photos done of Chris and I in his uniform. We never really had the chance because we have gone through several deployments and my pregnancy. But when Rachel mentioned to me that she was dying to do a vintage shoot a few months ago, I thought that is PERFECT! We are coming up on our 5 year Wedding Anniversary this August 3rd and I thought what a great time to have these done.

Rachel captured our personalities, our love, and our passion for each other in each and every picture. I will be forever grateful to her for doing these, they will be held deep in my heart for the rest of my life.

Wishing Lauren and Chris a very happy 5th wedding anniversary ~ here's to many more years of happiness together. and thank you to Rachel of Rachel Brenke Photography for sharing these gorgeous images today.
