Engagement Shoots/Inspiration

The Cutest Winter Engagement Shoot

We don’t often share engagement shoots on the blog.

It’s not that we don’t love them (oh boy, we do!), it’s just that we’ve got so much wedding inspiration to bring you guys, there simply isn’t the time.

I will say though, one of my only regrets from planning our own wedding, was that we didn’t meet up with our photographers for an engagement session beforehand – I think it would have taken some of the nerves away from being in front of the lens on our wedding day.

Anyway, I digress.

The reason we’re sharing this engagement shoot today is because it was just too gorgeous not to. Ryan and Kiana are a cool, stylish, adventurous couple, and I just know their super cute shoot with Alyssa Wilcox Photography is going to make you smile.

It’s pretty fitting that this pair, who met through a ski and snowboarding club and got engaged in Patagonia, celebrated their engagement with a fun shoot in the snow. I might be more than ready to bring on spring, but I wouldn’t mind another winter day if it looked like this one…

How We Met

We met while attending the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Two bright-eyed young adults who crossed paths after deciding to become members of the UNL Ski & Snowboard Club.

Our common interest in social activities and the outdoors, along with a huge group of mutual friends, kept us close throughout college.

When time for graduation arrived, Kiana made the decision to head west to Seattle with her sister, Paige.

Ryan also had his eye on Seattle and, after three visits to the city throughout the summer to see Kiana and explore new job prospects, he got an offer and moved in September of 2013. We’ve been inseparable ever since.

The Proposal

On the southern tip of the world, while backpacking in Patagonia, Ryan decided to ask Kiana if she wanted to be forever his.
It was chilly December 17th, 2016 when we woke from Camp Poincenot at 4:30 am to head out on one of the most beautiful hikes in the world. Laguna de los Tres in Los Glacieres National Park, Argentina offered a steep and chilly hike up.
We caught the sunrise over the valley and a clearing in the clouds. When we reached the base of the steep granite slope of Mount Fitz Roy, we stopped to enjoy breakfast together.
While appreciating the enchanting views of Patagonia, Ryan got down on one knee and asked the question.
