Sweet Desert Botanical Gardens E-Session with Shannon

December 6, 2018

We love our couples that come from out of town to celebrate the beginning of their married life together! Michael and Eileen are getting married at the gorgeous Mountain Shadows in the spring and I cannot wait to shoot their special day! They made time this fall to come out from New York and we got the opportunity to capture them at the Desert Botanical Gardens! Michael and Eileen even brought along their sweet pup to capture a few sweet moments at the very beginning of the session. It was a lovely evening, and these two were so natural together and smiled at each other throughout the entire session; we can tell they were made to be together! They gave us a  some insight to their relationship and we we are so excited to see them again! – Shannon and the Studio Girls

“I think what makes our relationship work so well is that we were very good friends in college before anything romantic ever happened (we didn’t start dating until a year after we graduated). I feel like being friends first has helped our relationship remain fun and relaxed.”- Michael and Eileen

“ It was a surprise when her proposed. My parents we’re visiting us in NYC for the weekend. Mike planned a lunch in central park. While we were at lunch, his parents and my best friend snuck into our apartment and decorated it with tons of flowers and “marry me” balloons. When Mike and I got back to the apartment he asked me. We then went to dinner with both of our families after the proposal, and then went to a bar  which Mike surprised me with a lot of our friends (even some visiting from other cities). ”- Eileen

“Our first kiss was onSaint Patty’s Day in NYC – it was very romantic!”- Eileen

“The first time we said I love you…she said it first! But it didn’t take me long afterwards to say it too…although I don’t remember the first time…” – Michael
