A few minutes later I heard voices and my heart started pounding. Soon Ryan and Alexa came into view, walking up the trail from the meadow. They stood on the outcropping facing the ocean and talked, laughed, kissed, all the things people in love do. Then Ryan read some words (none of which I heard because I was so far away), got down on one knee, and, well... just scroll through the rest of the photos. He nailed it.
After Ryan proposed, I switched lenses and we all walked back together and snapped a few more portrait-style engagement photos. The ring, their faces, all the kisses. It was a perfect mix of real life moments and candid connection.
Ryan and Alexa, I am SO thrilled to have been part of this unforgettable proposal. Your love for one another is genuine and full of joy and I can't wait to document your wedding day in August when you become #rylexa! (That hashtag though.)
