They knew each other in passing, but it wasn’t until one coincidental night and, perhaps, a pinch of fate that turned, what was essentially a virtual friendship, into a blissful romance. Bouncing to the beat of ATL’s old school (Kilo, Raheem the Dream, 69 Boys and the likes), Temica and Ryan found themselves attending the same concert, unbeknownst to Ryan. After Temica posted photos from the event, coy conversations shortly ensued via Facebook messages. They exchanged numbers and one conversation turned into another….and then another…and I guess we can say the rest is history.
Their engagement took place at The International House in New Orleans, Louisiana. Temica had planned a weekend birthday celebration for Ryan, inviting their closest and newfound mutual friends. Little did she know, she was in for a surprise herself. After everyone gathered in the lobby, as a prelude to a night on the town, Ryan professed his love and popped the big question. Through her tears and absolute shock, Temica was able to muster up a “Yes!”
We roamed the Sandestin for their engagement session. These two are absolutely adorable. Eskimo kisses and tender hugs, what’s not to love? Just as the sun was setting into the horizon, we headed over to the pier to capture the last bit of light. We can’t wait to capture more of their story later this month at their wedding in Atlanta, as they officially become husband and wife! To see other beach engagement sessions click here.
