Last year, I had the pleasure of photographing this amazing couple during their engagement session in the desert. To my delight, after capturing their love in the arid beauty, they invited me to Dayton, Ohio, to document the next chapter of their journey at The Lift. During the engagement shoot, their connection was so natural and effortless – it felt like I was simply third-wheeling on their adorable date. Their easygoing nature made my job a breeze, and I couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding.
The love story between Zach, an Air Force member at Luke Air Force Base, and MacKenzie, a nurse, is truly remarkable. Knowing each other for a decade, MacKenzie’s heart knew Zach was the one early on. Post-deployment, they became inseparable. Hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio, they share a love for cooking, hiking, and movies. Their first date, featuring “The Greatest Showman,” reflected Zach’s past as a theater enthusiast before his military days. It’s a beautiful tale unfolding, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it!
