Gabriel & Vanessa | An Old Mesilla Engagement

February 24, 2015

I loved meeting and getting to know Gabriel and Vanessa! As we walked through Old Mesilla during the first part of their session, I felt like I really got to know their sweet and genuine love for each other. The way they interacted during our time together just left me with such a peaceful feeling. Vanessa, beautiful with her sweet and bright spirit, was easily all-smiles when Gabriel hugged her, kissed her, and pulled her in closer. And Gabriel never hesitated to do it when asked to by me! 😉

With some tourists enjoying Old Mesilla the same time we were, these two were not shaken. I made sure a couple times that they were comfortable enough to stay in the areas we were, but when I asked, I’m not sure they had even noticed them prior! They were happily engaged in one another and the idea that their only jobs in the meantime was to be in love and make the other laugh. Not a bad job, eh!? They definitely rocked it. 

We finished up our session down the road near this special white wooden fence that just sealed the deal. I loved how they incorporated unique props into their session, as well, such as their cool shades and handcuffs, because Gabriel is a Sheriff. 

Gabriel & Vanessa, congratulations! You two were such a joy to work with, and I thank you for that!! 🙂
