Arizona Desert Engagement in Apache Junction| Apache Junction, Arizona | Arizona Engagement Photographer

Michelle and Erik joined me for their Arizona desert engagement in Apache Junction a few weeks back and I had SUCH a blast getting to know the two of them and hearing all the details of their story. If you’re an 80’s or 90’s baby, chances are you remember the days of Myspace – the customizable profile background, a song that plays when you go to page and the ‘top eight’ friend list that always was a cause for drama. I personally loved Myspace and was sad when it was replaced with Facebook! BUT – the beauty of Myspace lives on forever for Michelle and Erik, since that’s where their story all started; with Michelle sending a cute boy (Erik!) A friend request on Myspace. Since he was in a relationship at the time, they stated out being friends, chatting on the phone for a year before finally deciding to meet in person in March of 2010. Soon after, they officially began dating on April 18th, 2010!

Here’s how Erik then later proposed: “Christmas day in 2014, Erik told me my present had to be given to me at night. I thought he had gotten me a telescope being the astronomy nerd I am, but it ended up being way better. I was at my Mom’s house and he called me to come outside and to bring my family. Totally clueless, we all went outside and there he was getting down on one knee and a sign behind him that was lit up that said “Will you marry me?” He fumbled the ring and opened the box upside down. Haha he was so nervous. Of course I said yes! His family came around the corner and we celebrated with champagne.”

They’ve since become parents to the cutest little boy named Emmett – when they found out they were expecting, they couldn’t wait to take him on camping trips and to the zoo together, since they share such love for being outdoors. 

Their wedding will take place in Pinetop later this year, one of their favorite places to visit as family. It’s bound to be an incredible day, filled with gorgeous pine trees and the joy of celebrating these two Myspace friends turned fiancés.

Cheers!

Allison
