I go to church with Mel and Lara and I’ve gotten to know Lara better though a women’s bible study that meets every other week. They are a super sweet couple, so I was so pleased when they asked me to take their engagement photos!
We began at Amsterdam Cafe, where they went on their first date. I love using locations that the couple has a connection to!
Lara and Mel had a good conversation about where exactly they sat on that date, but we know it was around this spot…
Shout out to the employee who left her lunch so we could get this photo under the canopy. I love Amsterdam’s outdoor eating area. (I also love their lobster egg rolls: you must try them soon)
Mel & Lara both graduated from Auburn so of course we had to stop by campus!
One good looking couple!
Thanks to Lara for braving her fear of heights for this shot! I think it was worth it.
I love this part of Jordan-Hare.. not a main entrance for the average fan, but there are some special features to it.
We also spent some time in downtown Auburn. These were actually next to a church.
A quick stop by Toomer’s… (not an easy thing to shoot with so many people walking around!)
No trip downtown would be complete without a photo by AuburnArt, where Lara works!
Unfortunately, Mel got accepted to UAB Medical School (ok, kidding, congrats!), so they will be moving to Birmingham. With photos from places around Auburn
that hold meaning to them, hopefully they’ll always bring a little of Auburn with them wherever they go!
