A few weeks ago, a sweet mom rang me up and asked if I would be interested in doing a proposal session on Auburn’s campus. OF COURSE, I said yes, and I’m so thankful I got to be a part of Will & Jessica’s special evening! They’re a super adorable couple with family members who clearly love them dearly!
Will’s setup was that he was having an award ceremony at Langdon Hall that evening. That gave Jessica an excuse to wear a cute dress, and off to campus they went! Unbeknownst to them, there was another proposal going on at the same time! This is Jessica wondering what’s going on over there….
Then, to her surprise… her OWN proposal happens!
Could he have chosen a better spot on campus? I don’t think so!
Getting the first glimpse of her new bling!
And yet another surprise: both families and her maid of honor were hiding behind the AU sign!
I loved this sweet banner Jessica’s mom brought along!
A few more photos before they’d continue on to yet another surprise for Jessica… an engagement party!
Last but not least!
What a wonderful evening on Samford Lawn! Jessica and Will are planning (as of now) a wedding next summer. I wish them a lifetime of happiness!
Interested in popping the question, or know someone who is? Be sure to capture those once-in-a-lifetime moments! I’m currently offering complimentary proposal photography and would love to help you out!
In 2009, I spent a week as a counselor at a camp near Alexander City. Little did I know, one of my “campers” would become one of my close friends the next year when I moved to Alabama! That camper was Allison, and I’ve been so blessed to have her as a friend! I photographed her and Will a couple of years ago, but this session was so much better! Will is a very sweet guy, so I knew his proposal would be wonderful. Little did we know, mother nature had plans to make it even better!
When will first talked to me, we’d planned for it to happen at sunset. When I mentioned the rainy forecast, he said “she’ll love the rain” .. and he was right! The two of them had dinner at Amsterdam Cafe in Auburn before they came to downtown Opelika, across from the courthouse.
He gave her a penny and told her to make a wish.
Then during her second wish, while her eyes were closed….
He popped the question!
Of course, she said yes…
But it would be hard to say no to a gorgeous ring like this!
They celebrated with some family and friends before we took a few more photos in the rain!
I’m so happy for Will and Allison! I know their October wedding is going to be beautiful. Congratulations, guys!
