I met Mary Kathryn and Andrew last year at the highest point overlooking Lake Martin. I was having my 40th birthday weekend at the lake and my friend Jennifer and I went to the overlook to check it out since we had never been before. Of course my camera came along. As we were standing there admiring the view of the lake, a couple walked up from the hiking trail. We started up a conversation and they told us they were students at Auburn. It was one of those times when you just like someone the moment you meet them. I could tell they were dating, so I asked them if they wanted me to take a quick photo of them and email to them. It was late afternoon light that I just couldn’t let go to waste. 🙂 I took the photo, we chatted a little more and then went on our way. When I got back home I emailed them the photo. That was it. Then, almost exactly one year later I received a phone call from Mary Kathryn letting me know they were engaged and she wanted me to shoot their wedding! Yeah, situations like this are just what I refer to as “a God thing”. I just love how He orchestrates circumstances and people to be in each other’s paths….and this time it was a literal path!
Here are some of my favorite images from their engagement session at Aldridge Gardens. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding this June in Auburn!
