Camping Engagement Photos in the New Mexico Desert

A camping engagement session under the stars? Yes please! 🌌

Mallory + Kurtis wanted to have a really unique and fun engagement photo shoot, and as soon as I suggested we go camping, they were sold. ⛺️ Their proposal was originally planned to happen while camping (wildfires prevented it), so this was the perfect option! We headed out to the desert of southern New Mexico in the spring and had the perfect weekend campout, complete with a stary night sky.

I love when couples are up for getting creative and we can craft an amazing experience in addition to cool photos. πŸ“Έ A weekend camping in the desert is definitely out-of-the-box, but oh so fun!

Golden hour in the grasses was so gorgeous, and making dinner and s’mores around the campfire was so much fun. But my absolute favorite was playing around with nighttime photos under the stars! Can you believe the the last three night photos are 100% lit by the gorgeous full moon?! πŸŒ•
