Aidan & Andrea’s Engagement Session at Seagrove Farm

Aidan & Andrea’s Engagement Session at Seagrove Farm

This is an extra special session for me since the groom is my brother, Aidan! I photographed Aidan and Andrea on a lovely June day at Seagrove Farm in Apex. There is a beautiful pond and a walking trail that makes the park an ideal spot for portraits. In fact, this is the location that my family and I used last fall for a family portrait session. The trees across the pond are absolutely stunning in the fall.

Aidan, who is a natural comedian, always keeps Andrea laughing. The couple had been living with my dad and stepmom throughout the pandemic while my dad and Aidan worked on completing an addition/apartment to their house. Aidan and Andrea now live in that apartment and are loving the space, especially since Aidan and my dad built it with their own two hands.

Aidan and Andrea met for the first time through a mutual friend and then later on through online dating. Aidan’s smile and personality were what first attracted Andrea to Aidan. Aidan of course thought that Andrea was pretty, but on their first date, he couldn’t take his eyes off of her smile. They have been dating for 19 months and Aidan proposed to Andrea in January of this year. This is how Aidan described their proposal story:

“She had already told me that she would say yes if and when I proposed. Of course, very early on I knew that I would, so it was definitely a question of when. Late one night we were in bed, and I just asked her to get up for sec and did it right then and there. She was kind of in disbelief at first but said yes regardless. I didnā€™t have a ring yet because it was completely unplanned, but it felt very right and about time. Neither of us need fancy gestures or a whole lot of pretext, so it was special to us, which is really what matters.”

Aidan and Andrea are hoping to elope in Hawaii in September 2022. šŸ˜ Congrats, you guys!
