Brian + Julia | Engagement Session

When Julia said they had a good idea for where they wanted their engagement photos, they weren't kidding! One of their favorite spots is Taliesin West, they have memberships there and were able to secure a private tour and the ability for us to shoot their session there! Taliesin us a desert masterpiece built in 1937 by Frank Lloyd Wright himself. It was so beautiful! So happy to be sharing Brian and Julia's story! These two are so endearing and just easy to be around. Thank you so much for letting me capture your memories!

J: So how did you two meet?

Julia: We met through work when Brian traveled to Phoenix to work on a project. I remember seeing him and thinking he was so tall and cute. Then I heard him speak. His accent was absolutely adorable. Even though Brian had been in town for months, the first time I saw him outside of work was when we went out in a group because he and other co-workers were flying home. He went home and we started talking over instant message, text, and then on the phone. He was so easy to talk to and was so genuine. The rest is history.
J: Brian, whats something about Julia that you just love?

Brian:   When we're riding in the car she has a tendency to rub my earlobe.  I have no idea why she does it, but I find it endearing.  The second is her habit to fall asleep with our boxer Penelope in her arms.  When she does that they both have this look of happiness on there face.  It really is adorable.

J: And how did he pop the big question?

Julia: When he proposed, I had just gotten off the phone with my sister, Cate. In the conversation, she told me a funny story and sent a picture to explain. I was showing Brian the picture so we were sitting close together in front of our fireplace, laughing. Seamus and Penelope (our dogs) both happened to be lying at our feet. And then he proposed. It was perfect.

Brian: I can't say there was an exact moment when I knew I wanted to marry Julia, I just knew. 
 I know it's a cliche, but when you know you know.  

Thanks Brian and Julia! Can't wait for you big day next year!
