Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park Engagement


Kathryn and Ryan’s sweet hilltop engagement at Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park was a blast from the past. The pair carefully picked this location due to its special meaning to them. It was a place they had spent time together in their early years of dating. It was so sweet that we were now able to photograph them as fiancé and fiancée here amongst the rolling hills and giant trees.

About the couple

Kat and Ryan are both East Bay natives who met through friends way back in high school! Kathryn and her two friends were on a birthday trip at Katheryn’s grandparents’ house in Nevada, enjoying a weekend away in the snow. They got a bit bored at night and decided to prank call one of Nicole’s friends, which happened to be Ryan! Kathryn and Ryan ended up talking on the phone most of that night and both admit there definitely was a spark straight from the get go. They texted back and forth for a few months before finally meeting up in person, and that spark grew into a flame as they realized their connection only got stronger once meeting. Soon after, Ryan asked Kathryn to his senior prom and they then officially started dating. Stay tuned for their 2020 wedding post when I share the super sweet way Ryan proposed. Hint it involves an Italian adventure!

To Kat & Ryan

Kat and Ryan: I had such a blast on our adventurous Pleasanton Ridge engagement session with you guys! Props to walking up (and back down!) that steep hill to our destination carrying all your belongings and still looking fabulous once we reached the top! I loved learning more about you guys, your history together, your previous time spent at Pleasanton Ridge, and your exciting wedding plans and sweet gift ideas. I won’t forget how cute you guys looked giving each other piggy back rides or doing your happy dance at the end when we wrapped up the session! If this was any hint at how much fun we are going to have at your wedding, then I know that day is going to be nothing short of absolute blast. October of 2020 can’t come soon enough!
