This love between you two? This love that led you to feel not just ready — but excited — to share vows in front of friends of family? This love that made everything click? 

It tops the list. This is it, and it couldn’t be better.

Nidia and Sean are getting married at The Stillwell House in downtown Tucson, AZ later this fall.

We decided to venture out to Saguaro East National Park on the east side of Tucson on a foggy day for a quick desert engagement photo session. I loved Nidia’s fall casual vibes with her oversized sweater and leggings. These two were nervous about being in front of the camera, but like I tell all my couples, it’s my job to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and after a few minutes you will be fine! And it shows, by the end they were laughing and being silly while still getting cute photos that represented them as a couple!

Enjoy this Tucson desert engagement session!
