Brenna and Garrett are two engineers who met while moving into their dorms at New Mexico Tech on the very first day of freshman year. At a school with a very small boy to girl ratio of 4 to 1, it didn’t take long for these two to take notice in each other! After dating for 3 years, Garrett planned to propose to Brenna on campus and after she asked him when he would FINALLY pop the question, he did!
They began their planning for a beautiful backyard wedding surrounded by family and friends. Together, they built a large arbor for their big day and even carved their initials in the wood – how cute is that?! When they were setting up the final details before the ceremony, however, they discovered that a BEAR did not think it was so cute and clawed their initials right out of the arbor!
After 5 years married, these two are still very creative together and love spending their date nights woodworking, working out, searching for the best frozen yogurt and dreaming of their future together!
I had such a wonderful evening with these two running around the Malaga Cove Plaza and the Malaga Cove Library for their anniversary photos. The night was filled with giggles and romance! It is so easy to see how in love Brenna and Garrett are with each other and with their life together! They were so beyond sweet making each other laugh, reminiscing about their life together so far and dreaming of the future.
Brenna and Garrett – You guys were such a DREAM to photograph and I cannot thank you enough for letting me be a small part of your love story! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for your future together! Wherever life takes you guys – home owning, parenting, or modeling, perhaps?! – I wish you guys all the love and joy in the world!
Happy 5th Anniversary, you two!
“One of the things I love about Garrett is that he is like a real, strong, lumberjack kind of man. I love that he can just do or build anything.” – Brenna
“Brenna is just so beautiful and smart. I’m so lucky.” – Garrett
