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!
