I feel super honored to be able to capture this beautiful/crazy/painful/magical time in Shelby and Jake's lives. Not only are they planning a wedding, which is so time consuming and stressful in and of itself, but Shelby is also going through school and fighting cancer. 

Shelby was diagnosed around the time we were finalizing working together, and we knew scheduling an engagement session around chemo would be tricky. We landed on doing two separate dates for their engagement shoot; one without a wig, and one with. The strength I see not only in Shelby, but in the two of them as a couple is more powerful than a lot of things I've had the chance to witness. Shelby is an absolute badass and is going to beat this sucker to the ground!
