Sacrificial Love.

This will be the second time in their marriage that Ryan and Ali will be separated due to his service.  They found out he is deploying for a second time shortly after their one year anniversary.  Ali emailed and asked me to document their story.  As a way to celebrate their first anniversary but also to document their unique time of life.  I was humbled to be asked and loved every minute of it.  
 I really lack the words to express my thankfulness and my admiration for what this couple are willing to go through for the sake of my loved ones, my family, our safety and freedom. And yours.  I'm sure you too don't take for granted their service and along with me can only imagine the cost that it is to be separated worlds apart.  Ryan and Ali,  thank you {so very much}  for your service. Your dedication and your willingness is praise worthy.  
Having the opportunity to get to know them I know they fulfill this task ahead sacrificially and with love.  Much love.  I hope these images do justice to their love story.  Because they look at the past with thankfulness and look towards the future in anticipation to a grand homecoming that will be worth a grand celebration! 
Their love is strong and it was evident during their session. They really relaxed and got real in front of my camera.  It was just a joy to be with them and document who they are.  

Ryan and Ali, Again thank you for all that you do.  I am amazed at your strength of character. You both are in my heart and in my prayers.  ~Xiomara
