Ryan and Aislynn are both musicians. During university, Aislynn joined the Brampton Concert Band to maintain her musical skills. It was then when Ryan saw Aislynn from across the room and immediately wanted to meet her. Still continuing to notice this pretty blonde from across the room (and some gawking, admittedly by Ryan!), he finally got the chance to talk to her. Ryan had played it well because they’ve been together ever since!
They love to travel during the weekends taking short trips to New York City, Las Vegas, Niagara Falls and the family cottage. But it was only until Ryan’s parents gifted him a trip to the Dominican Republic for his 30th birthday to spend time with Aislynn. Ryan made the most of this opportunity, secretly transporting his engagement ring in his carry-on luggage which caused him sweats especially since he couldn’t store this expensive piece of jewellery in the safe where Aislynn would surely find it. Ryan proposed on the beach at sunset on their 2nd night of their first real holiday together. How dreamy!
Ryan tells me that on their first date together on Front St in Downtown Toronto, they had so much fun enjoying dinner, drinks and dessert together and he couldn’t stop smiling that his cheeks and jaw hurt! During Aislynn’s time at University of Toronto, they spent a lot of time exploring the city and spending time with each other in her bachelor apartment. For their engagement shoot, it was so nice to celebrate how their relationship flourished into five fun years together having all started from their time together in the city. Aislynn & Ryan had just adopted a cute little rescue dog named Jessie who joined us for some portraits in the snow!
I so can’t wait to photograph Ryan & Aislynn’s wedding at The Doctor’s House later this year!
PS: I just love Aislynn’s ring. Soooo pretty!
