Ruthie and Joel met while in high school, and by the time they got to college, they lost contact. Years later they met up again and have been together since. The two have an adorable son named Tristan who was just as photogenic as his parents. Ruthie and Joel decided they wanted to incorporate their love of New Mexico into their engagement session so they chose the Sandia foothills for a desert setting. However, we hit a hiccup right before their session. Ruthie had gotten all dolled up, and the boys were dressed to impress, and I had to take a trip to urgent care. The pair were so gracious and understanding. Rescheduling wasn't an issue! For the second go around Joel helped Ruthie curl her hair in preparation for round two. (I just thought this was the sweetest thing ever!) The pair were kind, comfortable, and affectionate. We cant wait to capture their big day in January!
