Engagement Photos: Quintessential SoCal

These Angels fans live in Newport Beach, so of course their engagement photos would be quintessential SoCal – complete with a beach cruiser and a sunset kiss!

Amanda and Ryan met four years ago when Amanda was visiting her cousin in Newport Beach for Halloween. Amanda, dressed to the nines as a flapper girl, must have fallen in love with Ryan’s confidence because he shamelessly sported a pink bunny costume all night! There were sparks from the beginning and the two kept in touch daily until Amanda moved from Seattle to Newport, where she was offered a job with Fidelity Investments. It didn’t take long before these two officially became a couple. For three years, their relationship and love for each other continued to grow, and when the day came that Ryan asked for Amanda’s hand in marriage, she could not be more thrilled!

Because the two love the beach, their ceremony will be on the sand and their reception, overlooking the beautiful Mission Bay at The Garty Pavilion, San Diego Rowing Club. After they tie the knot, the newlyweds will honeymoon at Maui’s Makena Beach and Golf Resort, compliments of…Ellen DeGeneres! Amanda actually won the trip on the Ellen show, thanks to her flawless hole-in-one skills…check out the excitement of that day here!
