Old Town Scottsdale was brought to life as I joined Heather and Ryan for their engagement session. These two were amazing and so fun to be around! You know those kinds of people who just have a wonderful personality and love to enjoy life? Well that’s how they both were and their relationship was remarkable because of it! Sharing kisses and endless smiles, I couldn’t believe how perfect they looked together!
Learning about the wonderful stories behind the couples I work with is one of my favorite parts of my job – well that with the fact that I get to capture their new moments together as well! Heather and Ryan both are from different places. Heather is from Phoenix, AZ while Ryan is from Dallas, TX. Despite this difference of location, these two were still able to meet as they went to school in Arizona. Sitting next to each other in their music history class, it wasn’t long before they felt that tug of attraction. Having a love of dogs, and even adopting one together after 6 months of being together, these two love going out together and have similar goals with their driven careers.
Using their love of dogs to his advantage, Ryan came up with a wonderful surprise for his proposal. Telling Heather that they were going to go visit a new dog park that they had never been to with their dog Ellie, she had no idea about his true intent. Walking around for awhile with their dog, Ryan eventually pulled out the ring, knelt on one knee, and proposed to her in the park. Saying yes, Heather was further surprised when they moved into their new apartment together since she saw pictures in frames of that special moment in their lives. Ryan had hired a secret photographer who had captured every moment of it! Just like that photographer had captured their precious moments, I was thrilled to be able to do the same for their engagement session. Taking a lot of natural shots of them having fun, I couldn’t get over what a beautiful couple they made! They were perfect for each other no matter where they went and I knew that they would continue to be as they journeyed on together on their path of love.
