Mariel & Ben | Engaged

When Mariel said something about me going along with them to shoot guns, I was intrigued and excited. I mean…when you do a lot of engagement shoots, it’s always fun to toss in something different now and then. And I couldn’t have possibly had more fun.

When Ben whipped out a couple of bandoleers I was blown away. These peeps were serious! And then two shotguns, the silver one of which I want badly. Of course, they were way more dressed up than you normally would be at an outdoor shooting range, but it was awesome. Ben and Mariel’s first date was to a shooting range, hence the idea of recreating that moment.

Afterwards we wandered around the desert and captured moments. It was such an overcast day that we had no hope of a sunset at all…until it happened. The sun came out right before dropping below the horizon…just enough time to make some magic in the middle of a highway.
