A Spring Hill College Engagement
It wouldn’t be a true southern love story if football wasn’t somehow involved, right?! Abby met Aaron when he was visiting Auburn (her Alma Mater) over an Iron Bowl weekend. They were introduced by mutual friends and hit it off right away, despite each of them rooting for a different team. Over four years later, Aaron proposed while they were on vacation in St. John for the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
Abby said Aaron one hundred percent surprised her with his proposal. They were heading out to go snorkeling at a beach Abby was excited to visit. She said that before she knew it, Aaron was down on one knee, asking her to be his wife. Amazingly, the two had only packed one bag for their weekend trip and somehow Aaron managed to hide a ring in it without Abby ever suspecting a thing. She was one hundred percent surprised and swept off her feet! How sweet is that?!
When we chatted about a location for their engagement session, Abby told me that Aaron went to Spring Hill College and that she thought he’d enjoy doing portraits there. As a Spring Hill alum myself, I know how special campus is to all those who went to the school.
I asked Aaron what he studied at SHC at the beginning of the shoot. When he replied that he had studied business, I laughed and said I avoided that building for most of my four years on the hill. Seriously, the one economics class I was required to take just about did me in! Even though I had a wonderful professor for that 101 class, my brain just wasn’t wired for the subject. Aaron said he had the same professor I mentioned during his years at Spring Hill. Ironically, a few minutes after this conversation, we ran into that same professor on campus!
It’s been a busy week of engagement sessions around here! I have loved meeting so many of my 2021 couples in person for the first time this week. I always say I have the best clients and it’s really the truth! All these sweet couples have me so excited for the 2021 weddings that are on my calendar!
