Fort Monroe Engagement Session | Ryan + Stephanie

 Elegant Waterfront Engagement Session

The first thing you need to know about Ryan and Stephanie is that they have the SWEETEST baby girl, Ryleigh, who was only 4 months old when she made her debut in front of my camera last week! She was an absolute charmer, looking straight into the camera like it was her job! It was hilarious and absolutely adorable - I personally have a soft spot for little baby girls. Can’t imagine why ;)

The second thing you need to know about these two is, as much as they love their daughter, they are also deeply in love with each other. They have weathered major moves, job changes, and of course parenthood, and have come out the other side even more committed to each other. The gentle way Ryan held Stephanie made this obvious, and her joy at spending time with him was evident.

Ryan and Stephanie, I can’t wait for your wedding in August at The Historic Post Office - and I’m so excited to see Ryleigh all dressed up in her flower girl dress! It was a joy to spend the evening in Fort Monroe on the most perfect (if not chilly) day. You two are so fun to be around, and I’m excited for you to start your lives together officially as husband and wife.

Believe it or not, Ryan had to convince Stephanie to dress up in their second outfit - and WOW I’m glad they did! So elegant, so classy, so beautiful.
