Ryan + Leah | An Outer Banks Proposal

On the morning of June 6th Leah woke up in the Outer Banks, North Carolina while vacationing with her boyfriend Ryan. They spent the morning making waffles, hunting for seashells, and taking photographs on the beach. When afternoon came they ventured out into town for sandwiches and souvenirs. Upon arriving back at their vacation home, Ryan suggested they take a walk down to the beach to enjoy sunshine that finally appeared after two days of rainstorms.

 

It was there that Ryan led Leah to a blanket set with a picnic basket, chilling champagne, a pair of sandals, and a book. The book contained their love story and was full of photographs and personal sentiments.

 

While Leah turned to the final page (which was empty and read"Will you marry me?") Ryan knelt down, knee in the sand, asking Leah to marry him...

Please enjoy a highlight video from Ryan + Leah's session below the photo gallery!

"I love her desire to constantly better herself. Whether it's continuing her education or joining a new gym to get into better shape, she is not complacent by any means and she does it all for not only herself, but for our future..." -Ryan

"Ryan always knows what matters most. He doesn’t get distracted with pride, bitterness, or vanity. He leads his life with kindness regardless of what he does or does not get out of it. He’s everything we should strive to be". -Leah
