A fun White Sands engagement session far out in the sand dunes of New Mexico with a stunning custom dress & nothing but miles of desert beauty in sight. The camera caught movement of the dress from the wind which also created such a dramatic effect. Capturing this motion & seeing it makes me feel like I can hear the wind blowing across the sands as theses beautiful memories were made.

What is your proposal story?
“He proposed in Salem, Massachusetts while we were touring all the sites where they filmed Hocus Pocus. Halloween is my favorite holiday and Hocus Pocus is a classic! He asked my brother in law to take a photo of us and after we were done, I turned around and he was on one knee. I was shocked! My sister was there to record the whole thing. Definitely a memory we will cherish FOREVER.”
“This couple and I flew into New Mexico all the way from Miami. The location for the engagement session was the sand dunes at White Sands National Park. The bride wore a custom dress by designer Renato Armijo of Chernaya Bridal House located in Miami.” – Patricia Gonzalez of PS Photography and Films
