Desert Engagements | Keith + AshleyMarch 7, 2014

posted in Engagements


For the past 10 days I was on the West Coast for a little work + a little play.  Last Sunday I got to run around Las Vegas with these incredible people:  Keith and Ashley.  They knew exactly where they wanted to go, and I was thrilled to be along for the ride.  Ashley found this amazing dry lake bed outside of the city, and if it wasn’t so cold out there I think we would’ve stayed there all afternoon.

Native East Coasters, Ashley and Keith are in Las Vegas for several years for dental school.  Would you believe that 5 years ago after one of her classes while asking questions to her professor he introduced her to his (single) son?  This guy was Keith.  They said they knew instantly that they wanted to be together, and have gone from study buddies, to traveling across the US for one another, to now planning a life together!  Thank you so much for sharing your story with me + for letting me run around town with y’all!

Enjoy some of my favorite images from the afternoon…
