"We were together. I forgot the rest." -Walt Whitman
Leayen and Anthony are lovers and good friends. It's always amazing to photograph two good friends who also happen to be in love. Although both of them are a little camera-shy, sometimes that is when magic happens. We are not all born models but we all have true emotions which, when captured, can be heart touching. It's fun to encourage couples to interact freely and passionately and try to capture those moments with true emotions. As the session progressed, I felt like I was witnessing the two falling in love all over again in front of the camera. Their abandon of love for each other trumped their hesitation to express their feelings freely in front of the camera. Leayen would give Anthony random kisses. Anthony would hug her from behind and talk softly into her ear. Then they would both burst into laughter. Love conquers everything. Love conquered the fact that I was there giggling sharing their joy and clicking away the shutter.
You two made it a fun session. I am happy for your friendship, love and now commitment to each other. I will see you next year at your wedding!
