Tyler proposed to Melissa a few months ago during a planned hike in Sedona and surprised his new fiancé with a beautiful ring. Since Tyler has been a friend of mine since high school, so I was more than excited when they asked me to photograph their engagement photos and wedding next fall!
For their engagement session we choose the date last weekend and drove out to the scenic desert environment of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve in North Scottsdale. Since it was the first time for all of us to explore the preserve, we found some magical spots with the golden setting sun as it descended behind the mountains. The preserve is definitely a new favorite spot of mine!
Tyler and Melissa are perfect for each other; both are genuine and sweet, they are going to make the best husband and wife. Below are a some favorites from their lovely sunlit session.
