Two Salt River engagement sessions in a row? That must mean it is GORGEOUS this time of year!! Definitely! We love heading out there and soaking in the unique Arizona landscape. Seriously, there’s nothing better during the spring time, with the green grass, calm water, and unbeatable light.
When we first sat down with Alyssa and Nathan, we knew it would be love at first coffee sip. These two just exude joy, compassion, kindness, and a sincere love for one another. Plus, they’re adorable!! We asked them how long they’ve been together, and when they responded 11 years, we just had to know more. Turns out, they met and started dating in high school, and have the prom pictures to prove it! These two have been by one another’s side for the long journey of nursing school (x2!) and are now both entering their careers. She is a post-partum nurse, and her sweet, compassionate heart is perfect for that role. He is an emergency room nurse, and his calm, servant’s heart is exactly what crazy parents like us need in the middle of the night in the ER.
Together, these two have been through so much! Their love for family and community is strong, but we think their love for their sweet pup, Jaxon, rivals all! They rescued him as a stray, and stuck with him even while he was timid and scared. Now, sweet Jax is playful, lovable, and oh so cute! When they asked if Jax could come along for their session, we jumped at the chance! We love sweet puppies in engagement photos!
Alyssa & Nathan are so excited to plan their family-centered wedding day at the beautiful and unique Paseo venue this December. We LOVE shooting there, and can’t wait to create some beautiful desert-inspired images and film for them. We know their day will be so perfectly them!
