A vintage-styled military engagement session in Ohio

I can’t help but love it when photos tell a love story, and I immediately fell head over heels for Jessica and Bo’s engagement session with Connection Photography back when I first published it. In honor of Memorial Day, I thought it’d be nice to share it again!

Jessica and Bo were together for over a year, but most of their relationship had been long distance. Bo was enlisted in the U.S. Army and was due to be deployed to the Middle East in the coming months. Their styled engagement shoot was designed to show respect to Bo’s service as well as their long distance relationship: Jessica is writing a love letter to Bo and as she goes to place it in the mailbox, Bo comes walking up the driveway from being away at war!
