i call it ‘meaningful life documentation’.
storytelling images of you and your loved one, having stepped away from your daily routine to experience something honest and personal, where you get to take part in the things that tug at your heartstrings, and to interact with one another in meaningful ways. you then return to your daily life with a big smile on your face, and images that remind you of your fierce connection.

‘meaningful life documentation’ is also the book of love letters ed made for shelley. a collection of notes they’d exchanged while apart in the beginning of their relationship. a meaningful, personal keepsake they can always go back to and remember the beauty of their story.

we braved the sun one afternoon outside of tucson, exploring southwestern desert trails, canyons, rivers and flora. i lost my footing a few times in the presence of shelley and ed because of the wild and quietly moving moments unfolding before me. after watching the sun fall in the horizon, we continued this sensory-rich experience sharing laughs, drinks and stories around a scrumptious meal in town.

this is the meaningful life documentation of shelley and ed. hold on to your chairs.
