I’m so excited to share these photos from Madison and Ryan’s beautiful engagement! When Ryan reached out to me saying he was planning on proposing to Madison at the Dallas Arboretum I was immediately on board. Ryan had this proposal planned down to a tee. Every detail was thought out, which is super impressive since he planned the whole thing all while being out of the country! Madison thought she was coming to the Arboretum for lunch with her friends, but instead Ryan (who she thought wasn’t even in the country!) was waiting for her at the beautiful Crape Myrtle Allee. Talk about a perfect surprise! Ryan got down on one knee and Madison immediately said “yes!” It was beautiful.
Ryan had also planned a surprise party with family and friends for Madison, but there was still about an hour of time before that was supposed to start. So, Ryan had the super fun idea to stop at Whataburger for a few fun photos. Ryan and Madison went to school in Boston and both had a shared Texas love of Whataburger – Ryan even brought her Whataburger all the way from Texas while they were there! So after the proposal we went to Whataburger, where they celebrated with some burgers and a milkshake with two straws. I said goodbye, pretending that I was done for the day, and headed over to XO Coffee Co. where Madison and Ryan’s family and friends planned the most amazing surprise party. It was such a joy to see the look on Madison’s face when she walked in. It is so obvious how loved and supported these two are and I’m so glad that I got to capture it all.
Madison and Ryan, thank you for letting me be a part of this beautiful day! Congrats!
