Yes, this engagement session is for real. It’s not a movie set and it’s not the latest fashion mag cover. It’s a real life couple and their real life engagement session!
It’s clear why we had to share Stephanie and Chris’s engagement photos with you (amazing style, ethereal setting, gorgeous photography, more style, lots of love, even more style…) but they’re not just pretty faces- they’re also a very sweet couple who love each other fiercely and we’re sure you’ll enjoy their photo session with Elite Circle photographer Scott Rice Photography.
How did you meet? We met in Tucson, Arizona on October 22, 2010 during the University of Arizona’s Homecoming weekend. A mutual friend who insisted we meet connected us, and from there our relationship blossomed into a beautiful journey of love!
How did he propose? The proposal was so beautiful. We were having the most romantic vacation together in Paris and on our final night we took a boat up and down the canal followed by a picnic in front of the glistening Eiffel Tower. It was there when he pulled a ring out and said the words, “may the shine of this ring remind you of just how much you are loved. Its circular shape reminds us of an endless love, an eternal warmth, and the resonance of a beating heart” then asked me if I would be his wife. Through tears and a cracked voice I couldn’t say “YES!” quickly enough.
While it is nearly impossible to choose just a single thing, I’d have to say my favorite thing about Chris is his devotion. He shows this quality of his every single day; whether it is through his determination and hard work in school to the love and passion he has for the individuals closest to him. He is truly one of a kind and I will forever look up to him for that.
My favorite things about Stephanie are her ability to light up a room with her beautiful personality and stunning smile, and her support that drives me to pursue my dreams and take the chances I need to in order to succeed in anything I set my mind, and focus my energy on.
We love the how the couple’s formal attire is juxtaposed against the rugged landscape; the effect is artistic and quite memorable
The ideal “date night”:
While Chris’ ideal date night is one involving amazing food and live music, followed by a night out on the town or a great movie, mine would involve making dinner together at home followed by a movie in the comfort of each other’s arms. But at the end of the day, we are thankful to be spending any date night together no matter the setting.
Why Scott Rice Photography? I love his artistic eye, and ability to find beauty in the simplest of things. His artistic approach to photography is unique, and produces some of the most phenomenal results. His attitude creates a relaxed, positive, and inspiring photography session that brings out the beauty in everyone involved. When he’s behind the lens, we can always count on unparalleled results.
Congratulations Stephanie and Chris- we are so happy for you and we thank you for sharing your engagement and love story with us!
