Real Couples: Jessica & Ryan's Cozy Fall Engagement Session

We have a sweet fall engagement shoot on a farm to share with you today, sent over to us by Idalia Photography. Jessica & Ryan set up a cozy scene for their sweet session, and their smitten stares at one another just make us saw "awe"! It was as if they didn't have a photographer around them, but just enjoying their time, celebrating their engagement, plans for their future. 

Photographer Alexandria and Jessica shared a little bit of their session, and their story with us:
Jessica and Ryan were engaged this past summer and scheduled their engagement session almost as quickly as they shared the news of the engagement with friends and family! I just love that kind of excitement! They knew they wanted fall engagement photos and planned the most adorable farm engagement session, complete with blankets and pillows in the back of Ryan’s truck. This engagement session is what fall is all about – cuddling with the one you love while you breathe in the crisp autumn air.
How we met: Ryan and I met at the one place you should never meet your future husband: at the bar! We were both with a friend for a country night happy hour because we both love country music. On our first date we went out to dinner and then for a walk on the beach. We both joke about how we went for this romantic walk on the beach and on the jetty we sat together, but he didn’t kiss me! When he dropped me off at home that night is when he finally did, but I always tease him about being out on the jetty….which as it turns out is where we got engaged!

 I don’t want to sound cliché, but I think as soon as we sat down at the bar to talk that first night we met, we knew we had something special. We sat and talked for over an hour about music, our families, our jobs and sports and just felt so comfortable around each other. We stopped drinking as soon as we sat down and started talking and just blabbed on and on. We dated awhile and then were apart for a few months until we ran into each other buying coffee before work. We had spent a lot of time missing each other and when we got back together the 2nd time we knew what we had was something really special and that we weren’t letting each other go.

The proposal: The night we got engaged we went to a nice dinner and then to the boardwalk and played air hockey at the boardwalk. Ryan used to play ice hockey and always would say he could beat me in air hockey and I refused to believe it. That night we played about 6 games and I lost every one haha. Then on our way home we stopped at the beach and he took me out on the jetty where we went on our first date and proposed on the rocks, it was awesome and so thoughtful.

Such a sweet story for this very sweet couple. Please enjoy their cozy fall engagement session, captured beautifully by Idalia Photography

Such a sweet session! The lighting captured of the fall sun shining on these two is so beautiful! I love the pillows and blanket set up in the truck with the hay bales, such a sweet set up! And how cute is it to include their pup! 

All our best to these two has they head down the road the marriage and beyond, and thanks to Idalia Photography for sending over their beautiful session and story.
