You guys. This desert glam engagement with Stephanie & Mark is going to have you drooling for days. I mean, can’t EVEN!! They wanted an over-the-top glam session, so I enlisted the help of a fabulous creative team to help their vision come to life. We decided that the glam styling would be a perfect contrast to the dramatic desert backdrop of Arizona. And after all that, it’s still their engagement session, so I asked Mark how he proposed to Stephanie:
“Our proposal was a well thought out magical journey! I had planted the seed several weeks prior to have a fantastic date night. For the first 5 months of the year, we both had been working extremely hard as we ventured into new careers. I established the date night and the planning began! With the help of her sister and Pinterest, we went ring shopping! Then the great people of Barnes Jewelers designed a special ring just for her. As the ring was being designed, I called her dad to fly him out from New Mexico to stay with her sister without her knowing.
My plan for the night would start with me laying out a sexy outfit for her to wear on this special night. Then the knight in shining armor would arrive to pick her up to take her to an amazing dinner overlooking Phoenix. I called the restraunt to let them know we were celebrating our new careers, which was true, but it was really part of the engagement! We enjoyed our delicious dinner all the while our family and friends were setting up the backyard to look romantic. Once we were dropped off by our driver, we walked into the front door which was laced with rose petals leading to the backyard, and the sound of John Legend’s “All of Me” jamming in the background. Once I walked her to the backyard, the whole family and friends gazed upon on us while I got down on one knee and asked the love of my life to marry me and she said YES!“
Well played sir, well played. And a huge thank you for your trust in me and the creative team to create this magical session for you. Congrats to you both! I’m so excited for your wedding!
