Reserve at Lake Keowee Engagement

May 15, 2019

Sheelah and Ryan are such a sweet couple, with insanely busy schedules. They’re both physicians, and knew they’d need someone to handle their planning for them, which is how I met them after being introduced via one of the Greenville area’s top wedding planning services, Upstate I Do, and I am so thankful for that introduction! Since the first conversation, we tossed around a lot of ideas for their engagement session, based off of their love of hiking, travel, and adventure. We quickly realized we couldn’t fit everything into one day, so we started with their Reserve at Lake Keowee engagement session!

It was immediately clear how in love these two are and how well they complement each other. Ryan says, “our first date was at Coffee Underground, and she arrived late, hair wet, and all I noticed was how beautiful she looked.” Excuse me while I swoon!

In retelling their proposal story, Ryan shared that the ring is extra special as it is passed down from his maternal grandmother. Ryan and Sheelah went hiking in the mountains, and he hid the ring in his backpack along with a photo album he had made containing pictures of the two of them together. He proposed once they got to the perfect spot overlooking a view of the Carolinas, and said he was so happy he could barely utter words!

On one of their first hiking dates, Sheelah and Ryan waded in the water next to a waterfall, so recreating that for their Lake Keowee engagement seemed the obvious thing to do!

How gorgeous is this ring? I think it’s extra beautiful when special heirlooms are incorporated into current love story.

As always, Photovision Prints knocked this film processing out of the park! I had these scans back within a week of the session, and it has been difficult waiting to share them!
