I met up with Kaitlyn & Rayce on Tybee Island’s North Beach. Rayce is in the military and they currently live here in the Savannah area. The couple wanted to have some sunset engagement portraits before their May wedding in NY.
Tell us about yourselves. How did you meet? We met in college. Both of us came from out of state to Austin, Texas for school. Rayce was a music major and played at almost every school function. I probably got caught starring at him a few too many times and one night he approached me after playing.
How did you choose your dress for the session? My gold dress is by Gianni Bini which I bought at Dillard’s totally as a last minute outfit for pictures. Neither of us actually knew what to wear and Rayce forgot his belt and tie that he was suppose to wear for those photos. But I couldn’t be more happy with the way they all turned out.
Tell us about your ring!!! SO unique and pretty! My ring is so special and I had no idea Rayce was going to do the sapphire. I had mentioned to him before that I had wanted a unique ring and I’m so glad he remembered. The sapphire represents both of our birthstones and its also the month that we met. It probably would have been the month he proposed but being military we never really know till the last minute when we will get to see each other again ( and August was close enough).
Plans for wedding location? Our wedding is in May and will be in New York. We could not be more excited!
What made you select the Northern end of Tybee Beach as the location for your Engagement session? What did you like the most about the location? I chose the north side mostly because of the lighthouse. Once there I was so excited at all the possiblities and the rather empty beaches. It was completely perfect.
