Desert Arizona Engagement Session | Phoenix, Arizona | Central Arizona Engagement Photographer

Alright, friends. It’s time for you to read Chris and Jackie’s story – it’s so, so good (make sure you then scroll down to see their desert Arizona engagement session!)

“We met at a bar in downtown Cleveland (our hometown) called Townhall. I was out with my friends for a pedal bike birthday party, and our last stop was at that bar! We were all wearing matching shirts, and his friends asked what the shirts were for. Chris didn’t act interested, and even barely said a word to me which made me feel like he was a “tough guy, too cool for school”. BUT, I somehow I got his number (I go for the hard-to-get personality) and we started texting. He then asked me on a date and the rest is history!”

Jackie and Chris then got engaged in Telluride, Colorado while they were away on a snowboarding trip. Following their 6 hour drive from Denver, they went out for pizza and beer. Chris then dropped down to one knee in front of a big snow mound and asked Jackie to marry him! They wanted to forego getting married in their home state of Ohio, deciding to instead get married in Arizona for a desert, cacti-filled wedding day at a resort in the Phoenix area! 

They have a dog named Hanz, that they 100% love and consider to be their child (he is SO cute – a gorgeous doberman!). Chris and Jackie love trying new restaurants, going for hikes and sitting on their patio drinking red wine with their dog and cat (sounds like heaven to me!).

This cutie couple from Cleveland is the absolute best and 100% were present in every second of their engagement session at South Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona. Check it out below!

Cheers!

Allison
