I think I may have spoiled myself by choosing this couple to be my first “portfolio building” couples sessions. They were complete naturals in front of the camera - actually, they were just complete naturals around each other.
Their love story is one of my favorites. Great friends in college, moved away after college, only to be reunited years later where they fell in love & eventually got married. I told my brother that story & he says, “So you’re saying there’s hope?”
I’m saying there’s hope, bud. Photographing them this morning I could feel the love & that’s why I want to photograph couples in love. I’ve been so jaded over the years, but if I consistently see LOVE in my viewfinder.. I think my hard exterior will start melting away. :)
