Chris and Lauren are good sports. And by that, I mean that they're really up for anything. They had NO idea where I was taking them, but showed up all smiles and looking fantastic. Then I ask them to do crazy things. They just smiled, grabbed each other's hand and were ready for anything. I had them climb up in a tree...Chris in his jeans, and Lauren in her dress. Yes, she climbed a tree in a dress. So you would think that the mishap in the tree would involve the dress. NOPE. Apparently, in my haste to get the pose right, I missed the nail protruding from the tree. So, when they BOTH fell out of the tree, Chris' jeans had a new air conditioning vent. It's funny now because he is ok. If there had been blood, it might not have been quite as amusing. I was a little more careful when I climbed the apple tree to get level with the huge rock I had them climb on. They jumped on a trampoline missing springs, they swung on a rope swing (that was more than questionable) ...and heavens knows what else I've forgotten since then. But through it all, they never complained, never argued, and never even made faces at me.
I think it would be totally safe to say, I'm pretty excited for their wedding. Maybe I can get her to jump off of something in her wedding dress ;) Kidding, Lauren...sort of.
