Sophia + Bo | St. Augustine Engagement Session

These two are a couple of Southern Studios favs! Brittany photographed their proposal last year and what a sweet story it was! Fast forward to their fast approaching wedding in August (next month! ahh!) a pretty engagement session in St. Augustine was a must! Sophia + Bo are getting hitched on August 11, 2018 at Crosswater Hall in Nocatee. Below, enjoy a little Q+A along with their so super sweet engagement photos. . .


How did you guys meet?

Bo happened to see me at a TPC Sawgrass golf match. I was with four of my guy friends and he did not want to approach me because felt one of them would probably be my boyfriend.

A few days after the golf tournament, he happened to run across me on Facebook (people I may know, we had one friend in comment.) He sent me a friend request, and a week later on his birthday I accepted the request. That night he messaged me and said, “ I don’t want to come off weird, but I crossed paths with you a few weeks ago and thought you were beautiful and fun, and I wanted to possibly get to know you.” I thought he was really cute and he seemed super genuine. So he & I made small talk for a few days. But one day, he was tired of small talk! Bo had looked at my page and saw that I worked as an orthodontist assistant. He messaged me and said he was interested in adult braces. So I became chatty Kathy excited to help someone with braces. He stopped me half way through explaining his options and said, “I’ll be honest, I have already had braces and don’t need them but if coming in and getting them gets a date with you, sign me up!” I thought that was really cute so I gave him my number.

How long have you guys been together?

We’ve been together for 3 years and 2 months!
— Sophia

How did you know he was the one?

Knowing he was the one wasn’t like an ‘ah ha’ moment for me. I just knew I loved him and I loved the man he was. He brought so much to the table and made me a better person that I knew was meant for me.
— Sophia

How did you know that she was the one?

I called my friends on the way home from our first date and told them I knew I was going to marry this girl.
— Bo

Tell us about the first date!

Our first date was Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015. It was super fun and we talked a lot! It was such a good first date, that I asked him to a lunch date the next day. He was leaving for Poland that weekend for 3 weeks for Navy stuff, so I wanted to see him again before he left. While he was away, he & I talked the whole time! The rest is history and we have been together ever since.

What is your favorite thing about Sophia?

Sophia is the most loyal and forgiving person I have ever met.
— Bo

What is your favorite thing about Bo?

My favorite thing about Bo—he never stops making me laugh. No matter what is going on, he can always put a smile on my face.
— Sophia

What are you both most looking forward to when anticipating the wedding?

On the wedding day, we are both most looking forward to the first look. I cannot wait to see his reaction and he cannot wait to finally see me in the dress!
— Sophia

We are so excited for you two & cannot wait to capture your wedding day!
