A cityscape romance between Chudney and Ryan was captured perfectly by Pharris Photography & Philms in these stunning engagement photos! High school sweethearts who reconnected shortly before Ryan was drafted into the NFL, this couple calls Texas home no matter where their careers take them and wanted to capture their love in Dallas’s downtown city streets. They chose a monochromatic outfit scheme to keep the focus on their beautiful faces and the urban architecture around them at the AT&T Performance Arts Center, sneaking kisses, strolling sidewalks and splashing in fountains all while looking gorgeous as ever. Pharris Photography captured their natural beauty and their personalities so well, from their intimate, serious side to their giddy playfulness.

How did you and your fiancé meet? “Ryan and I are both from Beaumont, Texas, and met the summer before going into 8th grade. He transferred to my middle school, and we ended up being high school sweethearts. We broke up for a few years going into college but rekindled the romance right before Ryan was drafted to the Washington Redskins in 2014.”

How did he propose? “I’m super shy and had been warning Ryan about proposing publicly. Luckily, he proposed in the privacy of our home, our bathroom to be specific, before he left for spring training this past football season. I know a lot of people fantasize about glamorous proposals, but we are both low-key. My ring makes up for his absence of creativity!”
