White Sands Engagement Photography: Madie + Matthew
Shooting in White Sands, New Mexico is ALWAYS such a treat, especially with an adventerous couple like Madie + Matthew! We shot during golden hour and I won't blame you one bit if you get an irresistible feeling of wanderlust from the glowing dunes! (I'm seriously already planning my next trip back.) Madie + Matthew said they had a magical experience in White Sands a few years ago when they camped there during a full moon. If that's not a bucket list adventure, I don't know what is!
This relaxed and carefree engagement session in White Sands was such a blast to shoot! I can't wait to capture Madie + Matthew's backyard wedding this fall in Albuquerque, New Mexico!
Can we take a moment to soak in the beauty of Madie's Rockwell Ring from Macha Jewelry in Brooklyn, NY? Matthew asked Madie to marry him while they were traveling in Germany, and on a 12 hour NY layover going home, they popped over to Macha and found the most stunning ring. I was so delighted to find this little sand sculpture formed by the wind, it was just like nature wanted to create the perfect ring holder!
