I photograph couples all the time and yet, this couple felt distinct. Their love was so evident in our shoot. Not only that, but when I was editing I literally teared up. My heart felt moved.
One of my professors from The Seattle School reminds us to play within relationships. I can hear her words now, "What if you invited playfulness back into the relationship?" It seems as we grow older we lose the feeling of play. Life gets harder, relationships take work, and we forget to make room for play.
During Jess and Sean's engagement shoot, I was reminded of the playfulness that can exist in love.
Let's be kids again, let's play!
