Cody & Sonja | An Engagement at Square Books in Oxford MS
The sweetest couple, a rainy afternoon, and the cutest bookstore in Mississippi.
We found ourselves looking for a quick escape from a drizzly afternoon in Oxford, and found shelter in Square Books nuzzled between rows and rows of biographies, fiction, novels, and poetry. There was the soft smell of freshly brewed coffee, the pages of books, and rain lingering through the air. Probably the best combination of smells I can imagine.
And tucked away in the middle of all of this, was these two.
Sonja & Cody had their second date at Square Books, so coming back here to photograph their engagement was a special experience. Knowing that they had sat here, chatting over their cups of coffee and learning the little things about each other, without even knowing that one day that would be the person they chose to spend the rest of their life with.
Once the rain dissipated, we stepped out to the plant covered balcony that overlooks Oxford Square, and overlooks the spot where Cody asked Sonja to spend the rest of her life with him.
