Kelly & Ryan's Engagement | December 22nd, 2017
Lincoln Memorial | Washington, D.C.
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. Kelly & Ryan's engagement truly personifies this notion. While Ryan is off in training with the U.S. Navy, Kelly is back in DC. Bobby and I know from experience how hard a long distance relationship can be.
When we meet for photos, it is nearly Christmas Day, and the feeling is festive!
Kelly & Ryan walk up to us, grinning, and it's clear they are both so happy to be together. Ryan returned home the day before our session, about one week before the wedding. Let's just say there is very little coaching needed to get romantic photos.
The place is Lincoln Memorial, where Kelly tells me they used to visit for dates; to sit on the steps of the memorial and talk. How special to recreate this moment, knowing they will be saying "I Do" so soon.
This New Years wedding at Old Hickory Golf Club will be a day to remember!
