These two lovers met during their freshman year of college. Mariah had just moved to Arizona from Alaska (talk about culture shock) Carlen had grown up in Arizona. They met one night at a taco restaurant through a few mutual friends. They fell in love and both made the move up North to finish their college education at NAU. A few weeks ago Mariah & Carlen joined by their families took a trip to Hawaii to celebrate Mariah's graduation. Little did she know they were going to be celebrating their engagement!
During sunset Mariah took a little walk down to the beach where she found Carlen in the middle of a bunch of rose petals shaped like a heart. He got down on one knee and asked her to be his bride and spend the rest of their lives together. Of course she said yes! They spent the rest of their vacation celebrating this new season of life together! Once they returned from Hawaii we ventured around the Arizona desert to capture a glimpse of their love! These two lovers have spent some of their fondest memories at the lake so of course we went to their favorite spot.... THE LAKE! The sun set, and we captured their love & celebrated their engagement!
