Desert Engagement Session

We are falling in love with this adorable couple for their winter desert engagement session! Sabrina and Greg first met in Junior High School. Greg had just moved to Salt Lake City and Sabrina’s friend told her that there was a cute new boy on campus. The pair later became good friends. Years later, Greg asked Sabrina to her first high school dance at age 15. Knowing that there was something more than friendship (and Greg already showing his romantic side), he waited on Sabrina’s doorstep to be her first kiss on the day she turned 16. After that, the couple was practically inseparable all through high school.

Greg’s proposal has us swooning! As a Christmas present, Greg gave Sabrina a bunch of envelopes throughout the day that were filled with dates and activities. Each envelope had a specific time and day to make sure they did them all! One of these envelopes included learning how to fly a private plane! At first, Sabrina didn’t read too much into it because the couple had been going on a bunch of fun and thrilling dates. She just assumed that they were all part of her amazing Christmas present! When the date to fly came, Greg let Sabrina learn how to fly the plane first. As soon as they landed, Greg took Sabrina by her hand and helped her out of the plane. He then promptly took her hand and went down on one knee! Sabrina of course said yes!

Sabina’s engagement ring is a custom design from Greg that looks like it came from the early 1900s! The ring came from Rocky Mountain Diamond Company in Salt Lake City, where the owner is a friend of Sabrina’s father! The center stone is a stunning 1.3 carat oval diamond! Surrounding the center cut are two halo rings! The far corners each have three gorgeous pear shaped diamonds to complete this design!

The setting for this engagement session feels like a dream where the only thing that exists is Greg and Sabrina! Taken during the brisk golden hour in the desert makes for a unlikely but wonderful combination of elegance and ruggedness. The couple chose to include elements that speak to their unique style. Greg chose a bolo tie, a camel denim jacket, and a gold watch that was a gift from Sabrina. The neutral tones paired well with Sabrina’s light romper, faux fur coat, and statement earrings.

We love this Las Vegas Desert engagement shoot! The desolation of the land makes for an unlikely but breathtaking venue for Greg and Sabrina! We hope you enjoyed their engagement photos as much as we did and we wish the couple a lifetime of happiness and bliss on their wedding day!
