A University romance brought Joel and Brittany together. Hence, it seemed befitting to have an Alma Mater Engagement Shoot, right at High Point University where they first met and fell in love.
Check out the stunning pictures captured by In His Image Photography of Brittany and Joel’s Alma Mater Engagement and tales of a very romantic proposal.
From the Bride:
How did you two meet?
Joel and I met at High Point University in High Point, NC. He was actually having a back-to-school/birthday party and introduced himself. I didn’t pay him much attention, but then he kept popping up wherever I was. We started hanging out and the rest is history.
Tell us about your proposal?
My (bride) family took a cruise to Mexico, Jamaica and Grand Cayman to celebrate my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary. During the formal dinner night on the ship, we were having a lovely dinner and then he said to my dad, “Mr. Harris, did I ever tell you how Brittany and I met?” Of course, my dad said, “No, how did you guys meet”. I snapped my neck at him and was like “Holy crap, don’t tell him we met at a party!”
Then I remember my brother standing up with his phone, I’m barely listening to Joel at this point because I’m posing for the camera (duck lips and what not) and then I realize my brother is taking a video. It was in that moment as I listened to bits and pieces of Joel going through our relationship that I put my hand over my heart and thought “Holy crap, I can’t breathe and this is HAPPENING.” Then I look to my right and Joel is getting out of his chair and on one knee. I freaking lost it and couldn’t help but cry and nod my head in agreement to being his wife. Then of course after the hug and kiss, I take a good look at the ring and say “It’s so beautiful!”
Why did you choose your engagement session location?
Our love story started at High Point University. Without HPU, we may not be together. I think it’s also significant that I didn’t want to go to High Point at all, but it was meant to be. Just like he and I.
