Fun Arizona Engagement Photography at Sunset

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this sweet engagement photography with you all! From their favorite bar, to the epic desert scenery of Arizona, we love what these two planned for their summer photo session.

Chris and Meagan first met at the law firm they both worked for. They were friends for several years, and would casually flirt with one another from time to time. One night as the two of them went out for a beer after work, Chris decided he would tell Megan about his feelings for her. As he started to confess the way he felt, Megan also shared that she had been harboring a crush on him as well- since day one!

Their first stop for this engagement session, was at the brewery where Chris first confessed his romantic feelings for Megan. They had fun sampling some of their favorite beers, and then went out to the back and took photos by a pretty, historic brick warehouse. Downtown Phoenix is known for cool, artsy shops and allowed for some really unique photography. As they noticed storm clouds coming in, they headed off into the desert for a few final shots. They arrived just in time, and captured some stunning moments of the sun going down over the horizon.

Make sure to pick out your custom save the dates, once you and your better half have taken your engagement pictures!

Romantic Spring Wedding Proposal Ideas

Today, we are swooning over this adorable wedding proposal! This styled shoot is thoughtful, detailed, and full of romance. If you are hoping to get engaged to your better half, these wedding proposal ideas should help with some fun inspiration.

These pastel colors are timeless, and would make for some great engagement ideas no matter the time of year. However, we are especially loving this theme for spring! The soft pink roses are so dainty and chic; and the expansive greenery adds so much depth to the Inn’s vintage fireplace. If flowers aren’t your thing, make sure to incorporate a few candles. Not only do they add tender mood lighting, they are forever dreamy and liven up any setting!

Planning a surprise engagement can be a bit stressful, so remember to bring something to cheers your new fiance with! Think about champagne, sparkling cider, or their favorite specialty drink. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime moment that deserves to be capped off.

Tip: If you want to relive the romantic proposal all over again, make sure to hire a wedding photographer for the big moment. They have lenses for all occasions, and can stand at a distance that won’t hinder the amazing surprise. Incorporating those cute proposal pictures during your ceremony or reception is also a sure fire way to make your wedding guests swoon.

Once your friends and family all know that you are engaged, it’s time to pick out some personalized Save The Dates!
