Wow oh wow, what a JOY this weekend was!! At the end of last week, I was able to go to Auburn to take a few graduation portraits. I always love my time spent in Auburn, and it was even more special being able to share in these moments with some incredible people. Not only was I able to be in Auburn for graduation, but I was there for another reason as well. At the end of June, I received a very exciting Facebook message. Mrs. Browning was telling me all about a proposal that was going to be happening on graduation weekend! Let me tell y’all, it’s SO hard to keep secrets like that!! I even took Emily’s graduation pictures the day before her boyfriend, Michael, proposed to her. I’m naturally a very giddy person, so being around someone when you know what is about to happen is SO hard for me. But that’s what made their proposal that much sweeter to witness!!
Immediately following Emily’s graduation from Nursing School on Saturday, her family had put together a surprise graduation (and more) party. As we all began to fill into the precious Auburn home, Emily was continually surprised when all of her best friends began showing up! This secret had been in the works for months, and Em had no idea that the best was yet to come! After everyone was there, everyone went outside so Emily’s dad could give a toast to the graduates and thank everyone for being there. As Mr. Browning turned to Michael to give a speech, he took Emily by the hands and dropped down to one knee. Tears were flowing and she of course said YES!!
Emily and Michael, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing me to capture this sweet and beautiful moment. Y’all are truly an amazing couple. It is so evident how much y’all are loved and how much y’all adore one another. I am SO excited for y’all as you enter in to this new chapter of your life, and I am so expectant of all of the wonderful things y’all are going to be able to accomplish as husband and wife!
So much love,
