As adults, Ryan and I have been really close. He is 9 years younger than our older sister Heather, and 6 1/2 years younger than me, so we weren’t as close growing up (he was only 12 when I left for college). Over the past decade, though, our tight bond has meant so much to me. It means even more to me now see him so happy and yes, **in looovveeee.**
Ryan, a long-time Guinness devotee, had to have a shot or two in front of this giant Guinness poster to pay homage to his trusty friend. 🙂
These two photograph so, so well. (Seriously, Natalie, maybe you missed your career in modeling.) And since I love them so much, what greater joy is there for a photographer? Lucky me!
Aren’t they so cute?
Dear Afternoon Sun: Thank you for setting up such a nice hair light for me.
See what I mean about Natalie’s modeling abilities? Smokin’!
Ryan and Natalie, thanks for letting me drag you around in the heat! I hope you enjoy these portraits for a long time; that they will bring back great memories of our fun weekend together and the butterflies-in-stomach-excitement of your new love. I know there are many more good memories ahead for you guys!
Love you both!! Come back soon!
