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

Buckle in and get ready for the sweetest Phoenix desert engagement session – it was full of champagne, laughs, a charcuterie board, red rock, a flowing gown-cape and SO much more. What’s more? I’m following these two to Bali for their destination wedding next year – it’s bound to be absolutely breathtaking and all things incredible. Read about their love story below!!

“We met on a cruise in Mexico! I saw him on the first day (and commented how hot he was!) and my aunt played match maker to get us to meet. After the cruise, we went our separate ways – he went back to Arizona and I went home to California. We hadn’t even exchanged phone numbers! I only knew a few things about him, but with the help of google & my good friends, we found his email address! I ended up emailing him and

Telling him that I couldn’t stop thinking about him and that maybe we could be friends. He reciprocated the feeling and we started messaging and getting to know each other over the phone. It wasn’t until over a month later that we reconnected when he visited me in San Francisco. From that point, we decided we had to give the long-distance thing a shot, visiting each other back and forth and spending countless hours on FaceTime and texting for a few months before I decided to take a leap of faith and move to Arizona. Long distance wasn’t easy, but it allowed us to get to know each other on such a deeper level than we thought, because we were always talking to each other.”

When Jeremy later proposed, Cynthia told me…“It was Christmas morning and we were opening gifts together at home alone. After all the presents were unwrapped, Jeremy mentioned that he had one more gift for me. He went to grab it from the other room, and suddenly, out came Rocky (our French Bulldog pup) dressed up as a reindeer with a scroll tied to his collar. On the scroll, Jeremy had hand written me a poem about our love and his dreams of making me his wife. As I read it, he got down on one knee and presented me with a RING POP! ….we are big Deadpool fans and we always joked about how he would propose to me like Ryan Reynolds did in the movie – he stuck to his promise! After the fun, he yielded a tiny black box with an engagement ring inside and asked me to marry him. It was the sweetest, most intimate moment and I wouldn’t change a thing about it!”

Cynthia and Jeremy like going out to breweries for craft beer and pizza, and a plus if there’s corn hole! They also enjoy trying new local restaurants – anything farm to table or with unique menu items usually catch their attention.  They also sometimes just enjoy spending time at home with their two dogs, binge watching Netflix. Cynthia said “It might sound cliche but really, we just want to see the world together. Our relationship started while traveling, we’ve continued to travel throughout our relationship and we hope that we can continue traveling and experiencing the world together for the rest of our lives. We hope to be able to take at least one big trip every year, our next big one being our wedding in Bali!”

From meeting on a cruise ship, to long distance dating and then a Deadpool-esk proposal, these two had eyes for each other and have created such an incredible story between the two of them. 

Cheers!

Allison
