It's Valentine's Day, which means love is in the air.
It also means it's one of the biggest days of the year where dating couples get engaged!
After the engagement comes a whirlwind of excitement and planning and Pinterest'ing -- and of course, engagement photos. It's officially time to capture your uniqueness as a couple so you can send out your Save the Dates, or design your wedding website, maybe create a unique guest book album with all your favorite images -- or just show off your coupleness, your YOUness, and that pretty ring!
This is Alexa and Nik, a sweet couple who are getting married soon back in the midwest where they are from. Because they now live and work in the Phoenix Arizona area, they wanted to take their engagement pictures in an area that was 100% Arizona looking -- which meant the desert. Saguaros, sage bush, flowering cacti, mesquite trees and sweeping mountain views all provided the iconic southwest backdrop for this cute couple.
They told me they were nervous to take photos, as many couples do, and didn't really know what to do. But after about 5 minutes, I had them more at ease and laughing together, and the end result was natural looking engagement photos that they said they loved!
