Lake Hefner | Oklahoma City Engagement Photography | Ryan + Alex

Ryan & Alex are a super cute couple and are totally head over heels for each other! Since they absolutely love being outdoors, we knew that Lake Hefner would be an amazing location for their engagement portraits. The gorgeous Oklahoma blue sky and clouds, the crisp fresh air in the open fields, the sailboats and the sand along the shore was just perfect in every way! We are so excited to be photographing your wedding next year!! We love hearing the story of how our couples met and their proposal! Here is their story told by Alex...

'Ryan and I first met at the Bad Brad’s Barbecue in Yukon when he was a freshman in high school and I was a sophomore. I was getting dinner with my family and some friends. Our friend Andrew, who was Ryan’s neighbor brought Ryan along to join us at dinner! All the way through dinner we both kept smiling at each other. After meeting we began eating lunch together at school and hanging out after school all the time. The summer before my Junior year and his sophomore year, on August 18, 2009, he asked me to be his girlfriend and since then I have been the luckiest girl in the world!

Last summer he took me to Dallas for our 5 year anniversary. The first morning we were there he told me we were going to the Dallas Arboretum and then to a nice brunch so that he could get me to dress up. While we were at the arboretum he proposed in the prettiest gardens and had a secret photographer to capture the most wonderful moment!  After proposing we had a mini engagement shoot and then enjoyed the rest of the weekend as a finally engaged couple! I had absolutely no idea he would be proposing that weekend so it was the biggest and best surprise!"
