Bryan’s my little brother. He’s taller than me and he weighs more than me, but he was born 17 months after I was and therefore is stuck with the title “little brother”. Kristin is the love of his life.
Bryan is quiet and more emotional than he’d like you to know. He organized a family vacation for the McGinnis family in the Outer Banks this year. Not only was it a family vacation, but our FIRST family vacation. I thought he was crazy, getting us all together in one place, under one roof, but it turns out to be more enjoyable than anticipated. (Thanks, Bro!)
A few nights after we arrived, Bryan and Kristin went for a walk as boyfriend and girlfriend and SURPRISE, they came back engaged. He proposed to her under a full moon, in a lifeguard stand, on a Nags Head beach. How romantic <3
We decided to celebrate with a glass of champagne. It turns out I was the only one who liked it though, so I guess I celebrated with a glass of champagne.
The next day Bryan asked me when I was going to do an engagement shoot and I jumped right on that. I’d never done an engagement shoot on the beach and wouldn’t have the opportunity to do it any other time. It may have been cold, windy and definitely not the perfect day at the beach, but the pictures are beautiful and capture their love so sweetly!
Here they are…
