A.J & Laura | Flagler Museum Engagement in Palm Beach, Florida
On January 24th, 2016 I had the honor of capturing A.J and Laura’s Worth Avenue / Flagler Museum engagement photos. A.J. and Laura both attended Palm Beach Atlantic University and began their love story in January of 2014. Their engagement shoot features the elegant streets of Worth Avenue and the iconic Henry Morrison Flagler Museum.
As we strolled the streets of Worth Avenue A.J. and Laura excitedly shared the details their proposal story. Sweet smiles and lots of laugher filled the air as they got deeper and deeper into the story. When we arrived at our second location (The Henry Morrison Flagler Museum), it was during the golden hour and the rich light illuminated the iconic Palm Beach home. This famous Palm Beach museum is where many locals and tourists alike come to take in a piece of Palm Beach’s history. This location is especially dear to the Bride-and-Groom-to-be because it is where A.J. and Laura would spend many moments together while dating. It is also where he popped the “big question” and is where they will be celebrating their wedding vows this coming Fall.
Throughout the shoot, Laura and A.J. reminisced on delightful memories of their proposal on December 13th, 2015 at the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum. As they took turns sharing, Laura laughed as she recalled how she was feeling agitated at A.J. (not knowing he was about to propose) and felt as though he was rushing her through the historic halls, distracting her from facts and dates on various exhibits. Little did she know the nervous and excited energy A.J. was experiencing. He was on the brink of asking Laura to be his bride. Upon reaching their favorite spot in the museum, he gently took her hands, got down on one knee and asked if she would marry him. With a joyful tone, Laura said “Yes!”; A.J. placed the ring on her finger only to find it was a bit snug. Although it took ice water, soap, and a little help from mom to get the ring off of her finger at the end of the day, she wore it proudly!
It was such a joy to capture them interacting while they recalled the memories of their love story. I couldn’t help but think how gently their tender love fell into place so effortlessly. A.J. and Laura, I can’t wait to see the journey the Lord will pave for you as your relationship flourishes even more. Praying for many blessing during this exciting time as you prepare for your wedding and even more, for a beautiful and strong marriage for many years to come.
Thank you for letting Andrew and I be a part of your lives and for allowing us the pleasure of telling your story.
