We love a good engagement shoot as much as anyone. The fresh excitement of a wedding right around the corner, the love clouded looks in the couple’s eyes, the dreamy scenery – we can’t get enough of them, really! These unique desert engagement photos took place at a cactus nursery (ya, we didn’t know it was a thing either!) and boy, are they beautiful! Get the low down from the trendy couple’s talented photographer, and the engagement story from the bride-to-be herself!
Tangerine Tree Photography says, This fun and stylish couple scouted out this setting not long after Dustin proposed. A stunning and vibrant cactus nursery nestled in the Hidden Meadows Mountains and bathed in the kind of gorgeous light that can only be found in Southern California.
Here’s an adorable story about their engagement, written by Quinn:
My ring was my Grandma Jojo’s and the center is a Sapphire which is my birthstone and was also my Grandfather’s. I always admired her ring and would drop major hints, but being one of 10 grandchildren never expected to actually receive it!! She would always tell me how much she loved Dustin and always ask when we were going to get married. Last summer she had a serious knee surgery and after the surgery she was in a rehab so I went to go visit. During the visit she asked me about getting married again and her ring was brought up. When I went to say goodbye she asked me to come back the next day so she could give it to me. We cried and laughed and she expressed her love and approval for the man I loved so much. When I left I called Dustin and told him about her gift and we both expressed our joy, happiness and gratitude in what it meant to receive it. Dustin held on to it for months until he surprised her with a proposal during a holiday card photo session!
