I first met Allysa a few years ago when she was a bridesmaid at a wedding of two of her close friends, Kayla and Sean. I was immediately taken with Allysa’s warm personality and sweet smile. I thought, ‘I hope I get to photograph her wedding one day!’ So as you can imagine, I was ecstatic when she wrote to tell me she got engaged to her other-half, Ryan! The pair compliment each other in such a lovely way. Last fall I got to spend the day with them in L.A., capturing their engagement photos. Since then, I have been counting down the days for their wedding, and I am excited to finally get to share a few teasers with you now!
Allysa and Ryan’s wedding took place on a beautiful January day in their home city of Las Vegas. The afternoon started at the modern M Resort, where Allysa got ready with the help of her mom and a handful of close friends.
Ryan met Allysa for a romantic ‘First Look’ and photos before their intimate evening ceremony. Seriously, just look at how these two light up for each other! I can’t get enough of them! <3
After an intimate ceremony we couldn’t resist braving the cool winter night to steal just a few more portraits of these newlyweds against the romantic lights in the garden.
A+R: Congrats on a beautiful beginning to married life together!! I’m so happy for you two! :-)
If you can’t get enough of these two like I can’t, check out more images from their Los Angeles engagement session (with their super cute dogs Bella and Bentley!) at Griffith Park: http://chels.wpengine.com/engagements/griffith-park-observatory-los-angeles-engagement-session
