This stunning desert engagement shoot comes to us from April Maura Photography, based in Tempe, AZ! Here’s April to tell us more:
It was Memorial Day weekend, Joshua had all the details planned out on how he was going to asked Jennifer to be his wife. The two were going to spend the weekend up in Payson, Northern Arizona, with his family in a cabin. Jennifer knew Joshua had bought the ring so with that in mind she was especially stylish and perfectly manicured for that engagement ring.
See more after the cut!
It was May 22, 2015. The two were to meet at Joshua’s home at 5pm and then drive up North together. That same day, Jennifer needed to get a new social security card at the DMV and of course, the wait there was a magnitude. It was around 7:30pm when Jennifer arrived at his house. Joshua had told her to meet him on the patio so they could wait out rush hour traffic.
When Jennifer arrived she recounted her whole DMV experience. It was in mid-sentence that Joshua interjected a question. (Background story: The two leading up to this day had been reading the Fellowship of the Rings, a Lord of the Rings book together. ) Joshua then asked her to explain what was going on in the story.
Jennifer then opened the book to explain what they had read thus far and as she did she saw a glimmer of something shiny hidden within the very words of Lord of the Rings… her engagement ring. Joshua then got down on his knee and asked Jennifer, “Will you marry me?” Jennifer for her response took the ring and sealed her yes with a kiss. Joshua you are brilliant!
