Ryan + Becky | A Proposal
When Ryan reached out to me about photographing his proposal to his girlfriend Becky, I was thrilled! Becky is originally from St. Louis, but they currently both reside in Nashville. Proposing to her in her hometown was really important to Ryan, and a must-have for his plan included a stellar view of the Arch. He landed on the rooftop terrace of the Four Seasons as the spot, which is just south of the Arch and has a really great view.
While Becky was busy at her sister’s baby shower (who just happens to be a past bride of ours!), Ryan and I met up at the hotel to go over our plan for later in the evening. They would arrive, grab a cocktail, head outside to take in the view, and there he would pop the question. That evening the weather was a bit breezier and cloudier than originally expected, but it ended up working in our favor. With the cooler temperatures and threatening rain, the rooftop was basically empty.
Becky’s reaction was absolutely priceless and I was so happy to capture this moment for them! Ryan also planned another surprise for Becky - later that night he gathered her friends and family at a nearby pub to celebrate with them. I wish I’d seen her reaction to that too! I say he gets a total A+ for pulling it all off ;)
Congrats to this beautiful, sweet couple! Here are a few of my favorite images!
