Lauren & Dalton | Engagement Session in the Bosque

The crimson leaves and crisp mornings leave little room for doubt — autumn has officially settled in here in the desert! Though the warm, shimmering days of summer weddings are long gone, there’s no shortage of love stories to share. 

In fact, if you ask us, they just get better as the year goes on. The signature Miller Media moody vibe is perfectly suited to the romantic, snuggle-inducing gloom of autumn and winter. 

Thankfully, Lauren and Dalton agree! 

After getting familiar with our friendship-first approach to capturing love stories at Mika and Ben’s wedding, our team had the honor of shooting Lauren and Dalton’s engagement session in the heart of Albuquerque. 

Keep scrolling to fawn over the golden light of the Bosque, the lovebirds’ infectious smiles, and the journey that brought them together as one. 

Framed by the changing foliage of the cottonwood trees, Lauren and Dalton strolled hand in hand during their engagement session, reminiscing on Dalton’s proposal. 

The couple met 8 years before as college freshmen, on the brick laden campus of Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. From November of 2014 onward, the two were inseparable. 

On the peak of a mountain in Durango, Colorado, Dalton and their beloved pup Schmitt, proposed to Lauren. Thus their life as a family officially began!

When the couple and their dog-of-honor share vows and say I do, we know it’ll be a fun, joyful affair bursting with love — just like their engagement session

Thank you Lauren, Dalton, and the ever-handsome Schmitt, for letting us document this chapter of your endlessly inspiring story. Your wedding day can’t come soon enough for us!
