I had the privilege of photographing this newly engaged couple, just two short days before he left for Afghanistan.

Ranah is the younger sister to my friend Ruba, who I worked with at abercrombie kids over a decade ago. We’ve stayed in touch, keeping up with each other via Instagram - she owns and runs an incredibly successful graphic design business in LA - and when she reached out asking if I had time for an engagement session for her sister, I was not only flattered but relieved I was not booked!

It was a romantic, waterside, sunset shoot. It was humid but it didn’t stop us from getting all of the good shots!
