Marvin + Brianna | Desert Engagement Photos | Elena Gallegos Open Space | Albuquerque, New Mexico


I had a blast photographing Marvin + Brianna’s adorable engagement photos at the Elena Gallegos Open Space in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The beautiful golden light the shines through the desert area of Elena Gallegos Open Space will seriously have you like Goldmember in Austin Powers loving GOLD. 

Brianna and Marvin have a love like no other. They have a love for traveling and living life to the fullest with one another by their side. They’ve been together for almost 8 years and I am so excited that they decided on forever together. 

The way they look at each other and their warm hugs will melt any frozen heart. 

It was such an honor to capture these incredible images for Brianna and Marvin. I had a blast getting to know them! 

I hope you all love these photos as much as I do. They’re pretty fan-freaking-tastic if I do say so myself. :)

There’s truly nothing like the richness of the sagebrush and that beautiful golden New Mexican light. Ohhhhh, and I can't forget about that incredible view of the Sandia Mountains. Albuquerque, New Mexico has so much magnificent scenery, it truly enchanting. Throw in a couple of cutie pie lovebirds and you will have yourself an incredible engagement session filled with love, laughter, and adventure. 

Funny story, we *almost* got locked in the gates at the Elena Gallegos Open Space.

PSA to all Albuquerque photographers (and visiting photogs!): when shooting at Elena Gallegos Open Space, please be respectful of the hours of the park. If you don’t leave before the gates close, you WILL be locked in until the next morning. Just a friendly word of advice. 

I simply can’t get enough of Marvin and Brianna’s epic engagement photos here in Albuquerque, New Mexico. My time with them was truly amazing, their engagement photos were beyond Pinterest-worthy, and I am so happy that these two beautiful souls have found one another.
