Jessica + Nathaniel | A New Mexico Desert Engagement Session | Albuquerque Wedding Photographer

Jessica and Nathaniel met while they were 18 and 19. She was his manager at Hot Dog On a Stick, and they hit it off right away. Nathaniel had planned the perfect proposal while the pair planned a trip to Amsterdam. Unfortunately the trip was cancelled and Nathaniel had to come up with a new plan. He waited patiently for the perfect time, he wanted the proposal to be as meaningful as his love for Jessica. Two years later the pair took a trip to Iceland, and while on the black sand beach he got down on one knee and the two were engaged! Nathaniel couldn't have chosen a more perfect way to incorporate their love for travel into their love story. For their engagement, the couple chose a spot over by the White Mesa Trails. They both love New Mexico landscape and adventure, so it was the perfect spot for them.

The two were such good sports as we had them walking around and hiking up things. Especially poor Jessica in her heels and dress! But she was a trooper! It's obvious that the couple has been on their fair share of adventures, and we're so excited to welcome into the adventure of marriage!
