Growing up just a block from each other, sharing a heart for adventure, and obsession for cacti, Brittany and Mark picked Lost Dutchman State Park for their engagement photos. It was the perfect place to show their love for each other and the outdoors.
The sunrise was magical, with clouds shielding us from the growing heat of the sun. We hiked around searching for the best saguaros to photobomb their engagement photos.
Mark fell in love with Brittany’s chill vibes. Some of their first dates included fixing up her truck all weekend and trying to eat some “fresh” turkey. They knew they were soul mates; because they could hang out together just doing nothing and have a good time and they also shared the same love for adventure.
Their wedding will also be cactus filled so I knew I had to get some epic ring shots on the cactus needles!
I asked Brittany what she is most looking forward to in their marriage -“Where do I even start!? Mark and I have been together since 2012 – I’m SO READY to be his WIFE!!!! He’s my best friend and ultimate adventure buddy. Seriously, whether we’re in the mountains or in the grocery store – he makes it an adventure. I am looking forward to doing life with him everyday and sharing a last name. I’m looking forward to reaching our goals together and building our dreams. We make one hell of a team. I can’t even contain my excitement at the thought of a sleepover every night with my best friend! Mark is the most hardworking man I know and he never fails to show me how much he loves me. I’m also looking forward to my best friend becoming my sister! Mark’s little sister has become my best friend over the last 7 years and I can’t wait to be sisters! I’m looking forward to lots of things in our marriage, big and little. I am humbled and honored to be the girl Mark chose to be his wife!”
I love their matching shirts for #teamdevries, representing their 4 core values <3 They felt like their true selves with their hiking backpacks on!
I had a blast with you two! Thank you so much for going on an adventure with me 🙂 I am so excited for you to be getting married!
