I met Minuet for lunch a couple years ago to plan a styled photoshoot as she was an amazing wedding planner and I really wanted the opportunity to work with her. My husband and Chris had gone to high school together and ran in the same group of friends but Minuet and I had surprisingly never met each other! We instantly hit it off. I loved her creative ideas and witty personality.
Fast forward to today and Minuet and Chris have a beautiful daughter Charlotte. At her first birthday party, which was adorably Charlotte Web themed, Chris got down on one knee in front of their closest family and friends and asked Minuet to marry him. Minuet of course said yes! The beautiful vintage ring he gave her was a family heirloom and I just loved capturing it and its intricate details. We took the photos at the amazing Inn of the Turquoise Bear, one of Minuets favorite places in Santa fe. It is also the location where Minuet and I planned our first photoshoot together, so it was really fun to return there to capture her engagement session.
She wore a beautiful embroidered floral dress and a flower crown in her hair. It was such a blast capturing this sweet duo as not only do I consider them friends, but they were so giggly and affectionate that they made my job so easy.
Congrats again Minuet and Chris!
