Olivia & Ryan | Hermitage Museum Proposal

First it stormed..then the sun shined on through just in time for Ryan to popped the question! I won’t lie, I was getting nervous about the weather when we had to change the location a few times but we absolutely choose the coolest spot for these two to get engaged! Ryan contacted a week prior saying that he had plans to propose to Olivia while she was visiting here in Norfolk, VA. I had never photographed a proposal but I immediately jumped on it because I’m just a sucker for love!! I was a complete surprise, silently stalking them because she didn’t even know we were turning this day at the museum into the day she became Ryan’s fiancé!

Olivia is a photographer in North Carolina so I knew I had big shoes to fill but Ryan had the right idea so it put me at ease to do this for him. They have been dating since they were 14…yes 14 so naturally all the magic was already there. This isn’t your typical setting for an engagement session!
