Downtown Opelika Engagement Session – Scharli & Austin

Although Scharli and Austin are from the same part of Texas, they didn’t meet until they came to Auburn! They’ve been together for several years now and are getting married in May. He recently proposed with an Up inspired proposal – complete with a swarm of balloons floating the ring! I had a great time with them during this January engagement session! You never know what January in Alabama will bring, but we got lucky with some spring-like weather!

Most of my favorite fields have been plowed after fall, so this was a new one for me!
