I can’t say how honored I feel to have been present for the engagement of Nicole and Ryan on a sunny and chilly February afternoon.  Ryan contacted me several months before the planned proposal and asked if I could be there to secretly photograph the event.  While an overcast and snowy morning had the potential to put a damper on the day, a sunny afternoon allowed the surprise to go off without a hitch!  The look on Nicole’s face, when Ryan got down on one knee, was priceless.  And then, braving the freezing temps and the windy gusts, we managed to spend a little time after the proposal taking some pictures around the Jefferson.  Ryan and Nicole couldn’t have been more sweet nor could they have been more in love.

Congratulations to you both.  I loved having the opportunity to photograph you guys!!  Thanks for letting me share in the moment. :)

No matter how hard we tried to control the wisps of hair blowing around by the wind, sometimes they had a life of there own. :) I loved the placement of the wisps in the image below.
