Dreamy Desert Engagement Right Here in Texas


Before the picturesque desert engagement you see here, Alison and Adam were an unlikely match given their distance apart – she was from Oklahoma and he’s a Texas boy. However, after the two started chatting online, they decided to meet up and Alison knew as soon as they did that it wouldn’t be hard for Adam to get her to consider making the move. After about a year of dating later, she did and they haven’t looked back since! When it came time to pop the question, Adam planned a surprise proposal in the scenic Rocky Mountain National Park at Estes Park, Colorado. With mountains in the background and a stream running underneath a bridge, it was truly a beautiful moment when he suggested Alison’s parents take a picture of the two of them on the bridge. As they were posing, he got down on his knee and asked her to be his wife! She managed a big YES through the tears of joy in a moment they will all cherish for the rest of their lives.

Now in this gallery where Lorena Burns Photography and Films captured their love so authentically around Monahans Sandhills State Park, they posed for some seriously stunning engagement photos among nature ahead of their classic black and white wedding at The Laurel in 2022. Their late April affair will have chic champagne accents plus some sophisticated details like a string quartet that will play during cocktail hour! We can’t wait to see all the breathtaking additions they make before then and we’ll be looking forward to seeing their big day through Lorena Burns‘s lens when the time comes. Cheers to the soon-to-be Placeks and their romantic desert engagement!
