It was evening when Stephanie & Ryan stepped out of the hotel overlooking Niagara falls in Canada. As they descended down the stairs the zimmerman fountain & bridal veil falls came into view as the lights began twinkling in the distance. They were admiring the beautiful falls & saying sweet I love you’s back & forth when to Stephanie’s surprise… Ryan got down on one knee, produced a beautiful ring, & then asked her to marry him! As Steph tells the story, she said “YES!!! Of Course” as she is smiling with joy & excitement for what the future holds with the love of her life, this amazing man she has prayed for!
This year I gave away a free engagement shoot for the best proposal story & Stephanie & Ryan’s took the cake! From all the well thought out details on Ryan’s part like the bridal veil falls-how clever… & keeping it a secret.. she really had no idea as they were visiting family in New York & went to Niagra falls afterwards.
I had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session in Alabama this past Sunday! They picked the cutest little park in Birmingham, called Railroad Park, for their engagement session & the light there an hour before sunset was so dreamy!
These two are so in love & genuinely smiled & made each other laugh throughout the entire session, which made my job sooo easy! I just love fun-loving couples! They were incredible to work with & two of the kindest, sweetest people you will ever meet! Seeing these two together & the love they share melted my heart! Stephanie looked incredible in her flowy dress that was blowing in the light breeze & Ryan was stunning in his suit & tie! I love that their outfits were dressy & colors complimented one another.
Steph & Ryan thank you sooo much for allowing me to photograph this special season for you guys & I wish you all the best as you plan your wedding! I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from their session!
