The shoot's photographer, Haley Graham, also shared a few snaps from the day, in which the future bride wore a LOT of white.

"Spent my morning shooting with the forever kind and beautiful Lauren B.! 💛 You guys can probably guess that I'm obsessed with this shoot already so 2 more peeks coming up,"Graham wrote on the first of three images.

In two of the shots, Lauren is wearing a full-length, white lace gown. The third pic shows the flight attendant in a more casual look, rocking cut-off jean shorts, a white tank and matching white choker.

Although this shoot was all about the bride-to-be, Lauren will be sharing the spotlight with her fiancé on their own reality show called Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After, beginning in October 2016 on Freeform.
