Andrea + Jimmy | a Spring Oxford Engagement

Andrea and Jimmy are college sweethearts. They met on the balcony of their 4th floor dorm, where they discovered they were exactly 2 floors apart. She was in 253, and he was two floors above, in 453. She knew lots of other girls had their eye on him, but Andrea knew that 2 floors would be the farthest apart they would ever be. Six years later, Jimmy made sure of that when he proposed on that very same balcony where they met!

Jimmy and Andrea have since moved to Oxford, MS where they have made their home. Jimmy works for the Ole Miss basketball team, and their schedule is often ruled by the games!

We traveled to Oxford so that we could capture their engagement in the place where they live their everyday life. Jimmy was nice enough to give us a tour of their new basketball facility, and I have to say, I can see why students play ball in college! It was so nice, and loaded with amenities. It was also the perfect place for Andrea and Jimmy to change and freshen up mid-shoot!
But first, we started on the Oxford Square. Andrea and I both loved the look of these gas lamps!

The Square is always full of little nooks and crannies, and we had fun seeking them out!

Cuteness alert!! Andrea and Jimmy JUST adopted a puppy! Little Lily had only been with them three days when we took these photos. She is such a doll!

Nothing better than white Spring azaleas in the South!

After a change of clothes, we made our way to another one of Andrea and Jimmy’s favorite spots, just in time for sunset.

I know Andrea and Jimmy thought I was crazy when I asked them to sit in a bunch of weeds, but look at how gorgeous it turned out!!

We finished up at a fun building that used to be an old train station. This building had such character!

Andrea and Jimmy, thank you so much for hanging out with us for a day! We loved getting to know you better, and we loved getting to meet Lily! Thanks for showing us some of Oxford that we had never seen before. Off the beaten track is always our favorite! We can’t WAIT for the wedding!

Cheers!
