Adventurous Engagement Session in Page, AZ // Danae & Evan

Adventurous Engagement Session in Page, AZ

Evan and Denae met through mutual friends back in January of 2013. The couple had what some might refer to as a “whirlwind romance” as the two were immediately drawn to one another, and started spending as much time as they could together. Even though they had only known eachother a few weeks, Denae invited Evan to join her on a 3 week- long backpacking trip through Australia that she had been planning since before they had met. He pulled some strings and was able to accompany her, and they were off! 3 months after their trip they were ever more in love, and decided to move in together and the two have been inseparable ever since. Several years later Evan and Danae traveled to a wedding on Mallorca, one of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean. From there the couple flew to Italy, spent some time in Venice, and finally ended up in Rome. Little did Denae know that Evan planned to propose on this trip! During a private tour of the Colleseum in Rome, Evan proposed to Denae and told her he’s loved her since Austrailia. She said yes, of course, and the two plan to wed in Ireland next summer 2019.

For their engagement shoot Evan and Denae chose beautiful Paige, Arizona. It is home to Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon, two wonders of the Southwest United States. The couple made a road trip out of it and even invited Danae’s parents along to see the beautiful southwest. Their love radiated against the plateaus of desert red rock and a stormy sky. If their past adventures are any indication, Evan and Danae ready for all of life’s many roads and adventures ahead.
