Engagement Session at Gates Pass in Tucson Arizona with Tucson Wedding Photographer Melissa Fritzsche Photography

I am so excited to share Allison and Andrei’s epic engagement session at Gates Pass! As a wedding photographer, I have anxiously been waiting to shoot my baby sister’s engagement session! Allison wanted her engagement session to be romantic, dreamy, and representative of Tucson. Choosing Gates Pass was the obvious choice. The desert is gorgeous and the sunsets are breathtaking. Allison looked stunning in her flowy golden maxi while Andrei rocked his ripped denim and black hat. These two seriously looked like I picked them off a movie set! Allison and Andrei met through mutual friends and have been dating long distance for the past year. Recently Andrei moved to Tucson while Allison is still finishing up nursing school. These two share a similar sense of humor and love for the Office.

I have to share their proposal story because it is just too good! Andrei proposed with the sweetest German Shepherd puppy, Pippen, and the most stunning oval diamond engagement ring! After coming home late, Pippen was wandering around our parent’s garage. A little confused, Allison bent down to pet this darling pup, just in time for Andrei to pop the question. Allison was elated and quickly said yes! Scroll down to see their first family photo with Pippen, who held still long enough for us to get a few shots. Allison and Andrei have such a solid relationship and genuinely work to make the other happy- a recipe for a long, and joyful marriage. I can’t wait to see where life will lead these two and I am grateful I was able to capture the beginning of their journey! Love you both!
