While these may look like Desert Botanical Garden engagement photos, Devaja & Neil are simply a young couple in love and are starting a tradition of having professional photos taken every year. Be still my heart! They both wanted to capture this time in their lives and then even introduced me to their adorably fluffy pup Riley.
Devaja told me about one of her favorite early dating memories:
“I remember when we went on our first official date, Neil took me to La Thai, a restaurant in New Orleans. He picked me up, brought me flowers, and was a complete gentleman! My favorite part of the night, though, was when our food arrived. We both get so nervous eating around new people, and neither of us really had an appetite. I noticed that Neil was being shy about eating too, so I brought it up and we laughed about it. I think we both liked that the other was nervous because, ironically, it made us feel comfortable around each other.”
Thank you so much for trusting me to photograph a little snippet of your lives!
