Toomer’s Corner Proposal – Austin & Pat

Pat and Austin are such a sweet, adorable couple! Pat and I have been planning for a few weeks how his proposal to Austin would go down. He wanted it to be a complete surprise to Austin, and so he chose their trip to visit Auburn last weekend as the perfect time. They currently live out of state and he thought she would be expecting it when they were home. I camped out near Toomer’s Corner and eventually found Pat, Austin, and their friends hanging out on Samford Lawn. You can see them there in the middle of the top photo – Pat in the pink polo, Austin in the dark blue shirt sitting on the ground. samford lawn auburnauburn al proposalalabama proposal photographerIt wasn’t easy getting Austin to realize what Pat was doing! She was trying to coordinate details with their friends and was distracted with her phone. Eventually, though, she realized this was for real!auburn al proposal photographertoomer's corner proposalPat got down on his knee and asked her to marry him.
