From the photographer, Maura of Maura Jane Photography: For Sarah and Jeremy's anniversary session we hiked the tent rock mountains to a location dear to their heart. Sarah wore a flowy tulle blue skirt contrasting perfectly with the pink and white rocks. She carried a gorgeously messy bouquet from Floriography full of desert flowers, pomegranates and roses. Sarah wanted her bouquet to have native flowers since New Mexico is where their love truly bloomed. Her hair and makeup by Genica Lee was simple yet truly complimented Sarah's natural beauty. We tired to capture the effortlessness of Sarah and Jeremy's love for each other as they danced and ran through the mountains hand in hand.
The couples story from the bride, Sarah: Jeremy and I met through a mutual friend on facebook. I was hesitant to talk to him at first (stranger danger) but he pursued...for 5 years. We finally became friends and then he eventually came out to visit me when I was in school in Oklahoma. We had our first date on New Years eve and we hit it off right away. Jeremy had me laughing the whole night. It was just natural. Fast forward a couple of months and I came to visit him for the first time in Albuquerque. I am big into hiking so I begged him to take me to Tent Rocks. It looks so cool in pictures! We hiked all the way to the top to a beautiful overlook when Jeremy leaned over and asked me to be his girlfriend. I was a little stressed, because I thought we already were. This just made it Tent Rocks official, I guess. :) We wanted to do our anniversary shoot there because it was such a meaningful location to both of us. We didn't get wedding pictures, so this was the first time we had our professional photos done! We couldn't have picked a better spot!
