A few months ago I got to spend a gorgeous summer afternoon with David and Grace.  They wanted photos together before David left for the Marine Corps and would be gone for at least two months.  These two are so cute together and laughed through the entire shoot.  We spend a few hours walking through Ashland, Oregon and photographing in any location that felt right.  This past weekend, David graduated from training and became a 2nd Lieutenant in the Marine Corps!  All the best to he and Grace in this next journey!   Here are some of my favorites from our shoot!  Cheers!

I felt inspired by Grace’s “hope” ring and what it said about their future and relationship…it was the perfect close-up capture

Lithia Park benches are perfect for couples and even more perfect in black and white

We had to incorporate the American Flag into this shoot and it added so much to the story of this image
