Mogollon Rim AZ Engagement Session | Caitlin & Marco
Meet Caitlin and Marco, they met in ELEMENTARY SCHOOL and started dating their sophomore year of high school (yay for high school sweethearts)! Of course, we immediately clicked with them since John & I are also high school sweethearts. Caitlin & Marco faced a couple years long distance during their relationship, and Caitlin says they learned so much because of it, “As hard as long distance was for us, it was so good for us and I truly believe that it made us so much stronger.” I love it!
Then there’s Marco’s surprise proposal. He proposed in front of Yosemite Falls in Yosemite National Park. While Caitlin thought she had planned a celebration trip for graduation, Marco had other things in mind, and he orchestrated the whole thing so that Caitlin never saw it coming! He even planned for a professional photographer to be there to capture the moment, and the photos are so, so sweet! Take a look at their proposal featured on How He Asked here.
Okay, now prepare yourselves for some serious romance and beautiful views. Oh, and lot’s of laughs too from Caitlin & Marco, who are just too adorable. We met them past Payson for their Mogollon Rim engagement session. They trusted me when I told them I found the perfect spot, and ventured down the 20 minute dirt road surrounded by pine trees to get to our final destination. From the minute we arrived to the moment the sun dipped behind the Mogollon Rim, Caitlin & Marco exuded happiness and excitement. I mean it! I don’t think I’ve ever worked with a couple so incredibly excited to be taking engagement photos. Caitlin was so giddy and sweet, and Marco was right there with her! We loved their enthusiasm and loved exploring the beautiful scenery with them. It was INCREDIBLY windy during our shoot, but that didn’t stop us. If anything, it added movement to Caitlin’s dresses that I’ve simply fallen in love with!
Here’s a peek at my favorites from their session and keep an eye out for their wedding coming this Spring at The Farm at South Mountain!
