Emily and Ryan have been together for three years now. They met at their place of work, flirted here and there and then decided to go out one night after work. My favorite part is that Emily broke the ice first by asking Ryan if he wanted to get a drink. In his words: “I was already curious about her. I knew when she asked to get a drink, she was interested too. It wasn’t a date, but it felt like one.” They immediately hit it off. Before the night was over, Ryan asked her out on a formal date and they’ve been together ever since.
These two are adorable, quirky, sweet and just simply awesome. In working with my couples during their engagement shoot, I always get a great sense of who they are and how they work together. These two are the best balance to each other; they compliment each other in such a positive way and they are always laughing. Emily also happens to be a florist, creating some of the most beautiful floral arrangements I have ever seen. Because of this talent, she has an amazing eye for detail and style. She made sure to style her engagement shoot and wow did she look stunning- from her accessories, to the gown, to Ryan’s boots, I loved it all. All of the details were personal and well thought out which gave me a lot to work with.
Ryan decided to set his proposal beside the old Colorado Street Bridge, amongst the trees and a setting sun. They took a brisk hike then took a break beneath the bridge. He then asked her to marry him. This was actually their first time back to the bridge, since he proposed, which made the shoot that much more meaningful. We all got a little teary eyed with excitement
“Our Wedding is the next adventure of many. It’s hard to explain, but sometimes you just know when everything is right.” -Ryan
I adore this couple and I cannot wait to document their wedding.
