This is my second military emergency engagement session this summer. Can you believe it? This one had an even smaller window of time to complete. Justin was just going to be home for a bit more than a week from Afghanistan. He and Kelsey are planning a red-white-and-blue July 2012 wedding! Good friends before falling in love,  these two aren't strangers to the long-distance relationship, but the military really puts it to the test! Before being shipped out, Justin arranged a geocache (like a scavenger hunt with GPS coordinates to follow) the last clue led Kelsey to an Altoids tin with a proposal inside! When she looked around, he was down on one knee! Isn't that the sweetest? We spent a little time around town - again, I'm sure his idea of R&R was NOT having pictures taken but he actually suggested a shot he really wanted (the dual focus classic) - - on the blog now :)  I loved watching him just watch her and look at her. Like he was trying to memorize everything about her before he has to leave again. He'd wrap his big strong arms around her teeniness (she's so stinkin' cute!) and she'd just melt into him.  They had such a great time together, they pretty much forgot I was around. We added their dogs into the mix for a few - Duke and Mac - big but very well behaved! Wishing you both the best of everything! Thank you Justin for your service. Come home safely and really soon!
