I recently posted on facebook asking if any of my couples were interested in doing their engagement session at the State Fair when it arrived in town. I knew it would be such a unique and colorful photoshoot and was hoping one of my couples would be interested. I received a message from Mariah that she would love to do a shoot there but she wasn't engaged. I told her that's okay! We can do a couple's session! The day before the shoot Bobby sent me a text saying he was actually going to give Mariah a ring during the shoot and ask her to spend the rest of her life with him. It made my heart burst with joy and my eyes well up. I couldn't have been more excited for this adorable couple!
Mariah told me her and Bobby have been close friends for such a long time that when they started dating she was worried about loosing him as her best friend. " He was very persistent" she says "he showed up at my house with 'Lucky Duck' brand wine (Bobby's last name is Duck) and in all honesty what really won me over, he made me the best guacamole I had ever tasted. I was sold. I decided to give "us" a shot. And boy am I so glad I did. Just like that Bobby Duck quickly became the love of my life AND my best friend."
Here is Bobby + Mariah's adorable proposal AND engagement session at the New Mexico State Fair.
