Surprise Raleigh Skyline Engagement Photo Session by Fancy This Photography
Has your social media newsfeed been full of marriage proposals lately? How about a spectacular surprise proposal overlooking the Raleigh skyline? Didn’t think so. While we love an intimate living room proposal, it’s ok to admit that some proposals have more flair than others! For example, Lyz and Ty’s recent surprise engagement on the Boylan bridge overlooking downtown Raleigh’s skyline.
Ty orchestrated this surprise Raleigh engagement with a little help from his friend Fancy This Photography. Nikki, the outstanding woman behind the lens of Fancy This Photography, had photographed Lyz twice before. Which is why Lyz thought nothing of it when Nikki texted her about modeling again. Little did Lyz know, Ty had contacted Nikki to capture their proposal on camera! Brilliant. Keep scrolling to witness Lyz and Ty’s beautiful love story.
The Love Story Leading Up to Lyz and Ty’s Raleigh Engagement
Do you believe in love at first sight? Lyz and Ty certainly do! The couple locked eyes one Friday night in downtown Raleigh. Lyz says that she immediately wanted to know Ty’s story, and that she was wildly intrigued by his looks. After only a few minutes of conversation, Ty bravely leaned in for a kiss! Hear what Lyz has to say about their starstruck connection,
“It was like we had some sort of electric pull, not even kidding, our chemistry started off strong and hasn’t lessened since.”
But wait, the universe had more to say about Lyz and Ty’s love story. The couple met on Ty’s late father’s birthday, a date that they hold very close. In addition to that special sign, Ty’s birthdate is on Lyz’s favorite number, January 16th! Lyz says that Ty has some hilarious similarities with her dad. For example, they both always throw up the peace sign in photos, and they’re both the most positive people to be around. An acquaintance of Lyz says that she saw them walking along Lake Johnson almost two years ago. They looked so in love that she couldn’t believe they weren’t already married!
She Said Yes! The Perfect Raleigh Proposal
After the surprise proposal, Fancy This Photography gave Lyz and Ty a spontaneous engagement photo session. Like a true expert, Nikki captured the couple’s genuine love with the sun setting over downtown Raleigh. The rest of their evening was equally as magical. Three different places gave the newly engaged couple free congratulatory glasses of champagne! After a delicious dinner at ORO, Lyz and Ty stopped into Beasley’s to share the big news with their favorite bartender. Throughout the evening Lyz and Ty facetimed family and friends to share the amazing news,
“It really has all been a dream come true! I can’t wait to be Ty’s wife and have him as my husband!”
