Mitchell joined the Army in 2012 and left for training but just over a year later during his Christmas leave in 2013 he finally proposed to Jessica on the top of the USS Alabama battleship in Mobile, Alabama. Since then training has keep him away and he has only been back to Mobile a total of 4 weeks out of the past 10 months. He is now stationed in Ft. Hood , Texas where he will eventually be deployed oversees. In the meantime, Jessica has begun planning their June 2014 wedding in Gulf Breeze, Florida.
It was during his transition to Ft. Hood that we used our small window of opportunity to capture their engagement photos. Jessica chose the Botanical Gardens in Mobile Alabama as the backdrop to their enchanting session. It was a romantic choice for a sweet couple that have spent the past six years growing up together.
