Heavenly White Sands Engagement Session

December 10, 2023 BY: Bailey

“Natalia and Michael met at the hospital during the Covid pandemic. Both working long hours at the hospital, the two co-workers quickly became friends and then lovers. “It was easy to fall in love with Michael,” says Natalia. “I just knew he was the one.” Michael proposed to Natalia in her hometown of Austin, on a quiet spring morning. Natalia (who I’ve shot her college graduation, nursing school, proposal, and now her wedding photos!) wanted to have an adventure of an engagement shoot, something that would create a romantic memory for her and Michael. I blindly suggested we take a trip to White Sands National Park, where I’ve been wanting to shoot for years – she jumped at the opportunity! “Lovers in the desert” is the image we held onto. We ran, twirled, and rolled around in the sand. 24 hours, 3 cameras, 2 states later, we created a magical story that emulate Natalia and Michael’s relationship: fun, beautiful, and all around epic.”
