Engaged!!! (albuquerque wedding photographer)

So about two weeks ago now, Josh purposed to me on our one year anniversary of dating. He took part of the day off of work and we went up to Santa Fe to see a photojournalism exhibit and to go to a popular restaurant called the Shed. Our evening ending with him reading from a prayer journal different entries throughout the time we were dating and him on one knee at sunset in the mountains, with a encore of dancing under the could have been a more beautiful, blessed day.

With all that said, I decided to experiment with my tripod and self-timer, so I took our engagement photos; which was an adventure and took a lot of patience...but after four different days with four different locations, I think we got some good ones in! I'm very thankful that Josh was so willing to go with this crazy idea...

This photo was Josh's idea, to look all "what-ever"...I think it turned out pretty legit.

This photo is a play on becoming "one flesh" ....Josh thinks I'm silly cause I think of photos like this. haha, but I like them, I'm a photographer, of course I learn by pictures, thus I think in pictures! :D

I still cannot stop thanking God for all the amazing things He has been doing through Josh and I and I'm beyond excited to see what God has in store for the rest of our lives.
