Engagement Inspo - Old Town Albuquerque

When it comes to engagements, everyone that knows our little team knows how much we just love exploring national parks and beautiful nature reserves around our sweet little Southwestern state, but we never say know to an engagement session in Old Town Albuquerque. Decked out with the coolest adobe buildings, subtle New Mexican details, and plenty of unique charm, this special little part of Albuquerque always gets us in our feels. If you’re looking for a cozy spot for your engagement session without going into the wilderness, Old Town might just be the perfect fit.

Jason + Natalie, a White Sands Engagement

When Jason and Natalie said they were down to adventure with us to White Sands National Monument we just knew how much fun this couple would be to capture!

Long before these Chicago sweethearts journeyed to our Southwestern haven, they actually met in the most modern way, on a dating app. And even though Natalie cancelled on Jason THREE times before their official first date, these two realized they were meant to be after an 8 hour date walking along Lake Michigan! Over three years, and one adorable fur baby names Bartlet, later these two are ready to make it a forever thing!

If their blend of genuine love (just look at the way they look at each other) and divine style (we have major heart eyes over Natalie’s couture gown) isn’t enough to completely enthrall you, Jason and Natalie are throwing an incredible Southwestern, boho-inspired bash at La Fonda on the Plaza this October!

John + Anna, a Desert Engagement

A few months ago we adventured into the desert with Brooklyn babes John and Anna. Besides living in one of the coolest places around, these cuties love concerts, brewing their own beer, and visiting our sister city, Santa Fe, as much as possible.

John proposed to Anna in Grand Central Station and celebrated with friends and family after at Blue Hill at Stone Barns in upstate New York. This September, these lovers are going to make it official with a big, amazingly fun wedding at one of our favorite Santa Fe venues, La Fonda on the Plaza. We can’t wait to see what East Coast touches John and Anna bring to the Southwest!

Randy + Elizabeth, a Botanical Gardens Engagement

In a love story that can only be a sign of pure modern romance, Randy and Elizabeth found each other on a dating website about 4 years ago and hit it off with a mutual love for good food (tacos being one of Elizabeth’s faves) and coffee. These babes currently live in San Francisco, CA with their lab mix Ryno and got engaged last year at Thanksgiving! Randy and Elizabeth are getting married this fall at the Santa Fe Opera and we just know that their classic, elegant wedding is going to be amazing!

Shaun + Jessie, a New Mexico Engagement

Shaun and Jessie adventured with us in the prettiest little New Mexico forest for an ultra sweet engagement session. These lovers have been together for about 8 years and first met in Ohio. Jessie was a barista and Shaun was a customer who Jessie found sooo adorable that she jokingly named him her “customer boyfriend”. To Jessie’s surprise, Shaun started working at the exact same shop a few weeks later on her birthday, setting these two up for the ultimate movie-esque romance. Jumping forward roughly 8 years, these two babes made a cross country move, started new jobs, and found a home together with their three precious fur babies! In the ultimate plot twist with an incredible girl power move, Jessie proposed to Shaun on a warm night in September of 2017. With nothing but a bit of whiskey and a hair tie, Jessie asked Shaun to be her forever (and to give her the best snuggles for the rest of their lives). Shaun even wore the hair tie for a few days after in lieu of a ring. We are sooo excited for their intimate wedding at Sarabande Bed and Breakfast this November!!!
