Bend is one of those incredible places that once visited, you wonder how you never had heard of until now, let alone how you are going to force yourself to leave. A haven for people who love the outdoors and just generally like spending time around gentle, ancient trees and seas of noble, turquoise lakes.
Needless to say, not only do Kelsie and Nick fit into this category, they define it. Thinkers, dreamers, creatives, they live a inspiringly simple life with their dog Olive (and her many boyfriends). They are surrounded by friends who share their love for what lies outside your front door.
We spent a day in a forest, hidden away from the world and celebrated a friendship, a love and future of two very fun humans whom I am glad to call friends.
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them.
