I am so excited to share another ML&Co Associate Photographer engagement session! I am absolutely loving growing my associate photographer team and seeing the girls that I am training produce amazing work!! Whitney captured Aren & Wesley’s love and joy so perfectly at their Town of Livingston engagement session!
I asked Aren how she & Wesley met:
We met in Starkville, MS at a BYX party my freshman year. He says that’s when we first meet, but I only vaguely remember playing cards with him and a few other friends that night. So, I say we meet about a year and a half later when a group of friends started hanging out the summer before my Junior year of college. We basically re-met and started dating a month or so later. I always wanted to be a friend with the guy I would marry first and thats exactly what happened and I feel closer to him because of that. I don think he really thought about it much. HAHA. However, he did say he remembered the day he knew he wanted to ask me out and I was surprised he even noticed me back then.
And how did he pop the question?
Her took me to my favorite restaurant in Starkville, MS, which was Restaurant Tyler. Our friend was our waiter and even though I didn’t know it at the time, she cam in to work just to serve us our dinner. could tell he was acting weird towards the end of dinner, but I didn’t think to much of it. As we talked out of the restaurant door, I started to hear soft music playing down the street, but couldn’t see anything. We started walking down the street and he all of a sudden put our to go food down and kind of placed me in front of one of the antique store fronts. He got down on one knee and said a bible verse that I can’t quite ever remember, and presented the ring. The box even lit up! I said yes even though he says he didn’t hear me the first time. We then went a little further down the street and a group of my friends were playin 4th trumpet, bass, and keyboard and we dance in the streets. He even had a surprise engagement party ready at his house afterwards.
I have prayed as I edited your images…
Aren & Wesley, I have prayed over you and your marriage as I edited the images from your Town of Livingston engagement session. The word that kept coming to my mind as I prayed was “uncompromising purity”. The Lord is setting you and your marriage apart as a testimony to the goodness of walking in His ways. Focus on holiness and purity in every aspect of your lives and His light will shine so brightly through you both that many will be drawn into the Kingdom through your love for one another!
I hope you love the images from your session as much as I do!!
