ARIZONA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RACHEL SOLOMON was invited up to Sedona to spend time with newly engaged couple Joan & Ryan at one of their favourite places. Rachel tells us, It was like a romantic wonderland! The day was dark and overcast with rain looming on the horizon. The sweet, innocent love that these two share was made even more magical by their surroundings. I asked them both to share with me a favorite memory from when they first started dating. Turns out it was the same moment! Here it is from Joan's perspective:

"One night he brought over the film Roman Holiday. We hadn't kissed yet, although we both wanted to. After the film, we lingered, and I could tell Ryan wanted to kiss me, but was being respectful. He held me for a while in the doorway, and then went out to his car to leave. I paused a moment at my doorway and then ran out to the car and told him, 'I would like to kiss you.' And we did, and it was very special."
