A couple stops for a kiss as they walk their dog near the Arizona desert. Outdoor engagement shoot.
Kyla and Matt met 5 years ago serendipitously when their flight paths landed them on the same plane. They were both enlisted in the Marine Corps at that time, and both were on their way home to New Jersey. After they grabbed their luggage from baggage claim, Matt asked Kyla if she needed a ride home. She didn't. But thankfully he followed up with a second question -- "Could I have your phone number?"

The rest is history. Less than two months ago these two packed up and moved to Arizona with their pup Arrow in search of a new beginning and warmer weather. A photo session in the desert was the perfect way to celebrate their engagement and their new home state.

I feel so blessed that I had the opportunity to get to know them and document their sweet love!
