Kelli & Ian’s Rustic Engagement

They were surrounded by their closest friends, sharing in a “friendsgiving” tradition that will now become even more of a special occasion for years to come. This murder mystery party was one they shared with the best people in their lives and each other, with so many laughs while everyone portrayed their own character. Ian’s character was supposed to win over Kelli’s character in the game, but didn’t have enough money to do so! So he brushed it off, and stood up to thank everyone for coming. He then looked at Kelli as his heart pounded, and proceeded to get down on one knee and propose! She was filled with so much excitement, and their friends all cheered as they held each other and shared this incredibly happy moment with everyone around them. It was absolutely perfect and such a reflection of their relationship. And at their annual friendsgiving party this year, they’ll be married!

Kelli and Ian’s sunlit engagement session was absolutely beautiful, surrounded by golden light and beautiful January weather. We even came across wild horses by the river, which was honestly pure magic! My favorite part was their sweet pup, Winston, who was prancing around and just living the best dog life. He would even occasionally pop in a few pictures, smiling for the camera with his tongue out while I squealed because he was just. so. cute! I’m so extremely excited for their wedding in Pinetop this summer at one of my favorite spots in the woods! Eeek! Kelli and Ian, I’m so elated for you and I can’t wait to capture your beautiful day! Congratulations love birds!
