When Natalie & Jeremiah met up with me for their Arizona desert engagement photos, I knew it was going to be a blast! They are both so incredibly fun, down to earth, and just fun to be around. And who knew they would turn up the heat so much in front of my camera! They even got to pick cholla out of my leg when it was all said and done. If that doesn’t make you bond with your photographer, I don’t know what does.
I asked Natalie to tell me about Jeremiah’s proposal:
“During our 10-hour third date, one of the things we did was slow dance in his apartment to Peter Frampton’s ‘Baby I Love the Way’ on vinyl. We both like that song and have danced to it a few times throughout the last year. Jeremiah’s quite the dancer, and I love dancing with him, so we started taking dance lessons in August.
We dance together in our house multiple times a week, so I didn’t think anything of it when he turned on ‘our song’ early in the morning on Friday, October 7 and we started dancing in the kitchen. He told me how much I mean to him, and that I make him a better person. Then he got down on one knee and pulled out a ring box! While down on one knee he told me that on the inside of the ring it says, ‘Beautiful,’ so that even when he’s not here with me one day, I’ll still know every day that I’m beautiful. I sobbed and said, ‘Yes!’
Like most things in our relationship, every detail of the engagement was thought through. He called my mom the night before to let her know, so that she’d have her phone on her at work and be ready for my call. He proposed just hours before we boarded a flight to NJ to visit my friends and family, so that we would get to spend the next 6 days celebrating with them.”
Congrats to you both! I’m so incredibly happy for you and so glad we have gotten to know each other!
