Michelle and Tom Engagement Session at The Phoenician shot by Rachel Solomon Photography | Arizona Weddings Magazine

This amazing desert garden engagement session at The Phoenician with Rachel Solomon Photography is incredibly beautiful and chic. These pictures melt our hearts with their soft, romantic tone. The couple, Michelle and Tom, look adorable together as they stroll along the pathway and smile lovingly into each other’s eyes. The natural desert brush provides a rural Arizona backdrop that’s interspersed with red-blooming oleander and bougainvillea bushes. The Phoenician is where the couple got engaged, so it makes a perfect spot for their engagement photo session.

Tom proposed to Michelle at a New Year’s Eve cocktail party. After rounds of everyone singing Piano Man, Tom asked Michelle to take a stroll with him down to the pool before the ball dropped. Just as the crowd above them cheered to celebrate the New Year, Tom got down on one knee and proposed to Michelle. She was so surprised and overcome with joy, and quickly shouted “YES!” The couple then went back up to the bar to celebrate the New Year and their engagement with champagne.
