The Pit Engagement // Josh & Angela

Oh my goodness, this engagement session was so much fun!  I'm not sure if it's because we captured Josh & Angela's love in such fun locations, because they laughed so hard all day, or because they're family... perhaps it was all of it mixed together! 

Years ago, Josh and Angela met in a volleyball class, while attending UNM.  They soon discovered they had a lot in common, and Angela was quickly inviting him to watch her play for the UNM Lady Lobo Basketball Team.  Josh happily attended the games, and Angela excitedly joined festivities in his life— and the rest is history!  

In December, Josh created a scavenger hunt for Angela, with the final stop at The Pit— with a ring in hand.  She happily said, "YES!" (obviously), and they've been planning their beautiful ceremony at UNM, and their fun reception at The Pit ever since.  SO, I instantly knew that we had to incorporate The Pit into their engagement session— so that we did!  

We started inside, and strolled around and worked our way down to the court.  A little snuggling on the court, and a small dance party— and we were off to a great start!  Our second stop was outside The Pit to capture the gorgeous natural light and lots of happy giggles.  And then, we were off to the sand dunes!  And... holy wind batman!  But, Josh and Ang were troopers, and embraced the wild wind gusts as they held each other close.  Although the wind whipped around them like a hurricane, he calmly held her tight, and she snuggled into his safe arms.  And as they watched the sun dip behind the beauty of the dessert horizon, all was perfect.

Josh & Ang  //  Thank you so much for letting me spend the day with you and capture this special time!  I am so excited for the two of you and can't wait to celebrate with you!!!  All my love!
