Ahh love, sweet love. One of my MOST favorite things about my job is capturing the special relationships between people. I think I get to see things differently, a unique glimpse into people’s relationships in a special way that not everyone else has the chance to. I am lucky to witness people interacting with each other in the sweetest of ways. They’re all dressed up and looking their best, they’re excited (or nervous) about having their photos taken, I take them to a beautiful, secluded location and direct them in posing and interacting with one another, and all of it unfolds so beautifully. I get to see, close up, the way they look at each other and talk with one another, how they hug and kiss and hold hands and communicate. And it’s all because we are there to create and capture these authentic moments and celebrate their love. Yes, this is definitely one of the best parts of my job.
This couple is very near and dear to my heart. And one of the things I hear them say over and over to each other is “Everyday I Love You.” It’s really sweet and they mean it. You could feel the love between them before, during and after the shoot and see it everyday. To make things even sweeter, Meredith wore her Mother-in-law’s wings around her neck and her grandmother’s earrings. I love when couples incorporate meaningful items and heirlooms into their session. It makes everything so much more romantic and nostalgic. I am beyond overjoyed that I sometimes get to capture these special moments for people as special to me as my “little” brother and his fiancé. It makes my heart want to burst.
Here’s to the beautiful couple…
