What a great afternoon we had with Emma & Ryan. They came to Nashville for some wedding planning and we got to spend the afternoon hanging out at Arrington Vineyards, getting to know them and seeing how much they love and care for each other. And then Matt & I were completely blown away when we finished up the session and were invited to enjoy some wine and cheese with their families. And not just any families; Ryan and Emma have such an amazing group of people who love them and came from across the country to spend the weekend together.
Ryan recently returned from deployments overseas and is stationed in Savannah with the Army while Emma is in school in Atlanta and spending time with their families made it very clear what kind of people Emma & Ryan are. We felt so blessed to be invited to get to know them, to laugh together and to see how truly excited they all are for these two to get married. That evening reminded us of why we do what we do. Why we are documenting life’s journeys. Why we are preserving memories. Why we are capturing what love and family mean to two people and all the people they touch with their lives.
These photos are a peek of what that love looks like for Ryan & Emma.
These two met at Notre Dame and Ryan has been serving our country ever since. They know what sacrifice means and how to love despite the distance.
