A few weeks ago I was contacted by Ryan and Brandy to photograph their engagement party. I was really looking forward to it as we have many mutual friends and the level of excitement and joy at these kinds of events is always so lovely to be in the midst of. To my surprise, I got a phone call from Ryan 24 hours before the event to tell me that actually, this wasn’t just an engagement party – it was a surprise wedding! Cue me becoming flustered, excited, confused and then excited again all within 30 seconds!

They were surrounded by the most important people in their worlds and it was one hell of a party, despite the early thunderstorm that threatened to ruin the outdoor portion. Thanks, Ryan and Brandy, for allowing me to capture such a joyful and exciting evening for you and your nearest and dearest. I wish you all the love and happiness in the world! May you know joy, peace, acceptance and love in each others’ arms every single day.
