Capturing true love is something I never get tired of, and it truly makes my heart smile! It may seem cliche', but Dayna & Ryan are such an example of true love. The way they look at each other...especially the way Ryan looks at Dayna...will stop you in your tracks. It's so easy to see how they adore one another and how they truly enjoy each other's company. We had such a great time together during their engagement session.
Ryan took us to his friend's private property, and we had to hike up to the top of a huge rock/cliff where we could see for miles! It was absolutely gorgeous!! Dayna originally said she didn't want to take engagement pictures because she doesn't like having her pictures taken. Ryan encouraged her to do it anyway, and I am so thankful she did! Dayna is so beautiful and a total sweetheart. Her smile is contagious, and her hair...well, what I would give for that hair!! I would have never, in a million years, have guessed that she didn't like the camera!! I mean, she doesn't take a bad picture!! Ryan has such a kind, genuine spirit. He is so friendly and funny! They both made me feel so comfortable, and they went with the flow & trusted my vision.
It was an honor to witness their connection and their excitement for their future together! Although I have decided to book a very limited number of weddings this year, I am thrilled that their big day is on my calendar!!
Dayna told me that she has always loved the way Ryan looks at her...as if she's the only girl in the room. When I edited their images, that's what I kept thinking! It's just so natural, and you can tell that he loves her with everything he is!
They laugh a lot, too! And Dayna shakes her head at Ryan a lot! Haha :)
Dayna was teasing Ryan because he kisses with his eyes open!! Haha :) We laughed & laughed!! Then, Ryan had to show her that he could kiss with his eyes closed!! He said, "See, Dayna, I can do it. Let's kiss! Wait, I don't know where you are!!" Ryan is hilarious! :)
Good job, Ryan!! LOL :)
There was a cave-type formation on the property that was just awesome! Ryan said he and his friends used to camp in it when they were kids!
Congratulations, Dayna & Ryan! I can't wait to photograph your beautiful wedding in April!! Ryan, you better work on kissing with your eyes closed!! Haha :)
