Nearby is the country called Life.
You will know it by its seriousness and joy.
Give me your hand.
Where to start? This engagement shoot was of monumental specialness to me, since Cate is one of my dearest heart of hearts.
She’s a bright-eyed writer, a compassionate giver, a ferocious athlete, and has the most reckless spirit in every excellent sense of the word. She’s been my Poppy on so many clever adventures and I love her to smithers. And Jeremy? He’s not too bad himself. I’m constantly impressed by his strong character and kindness, and the few other thousandths amaaaaazing things I so often hear of.
They met at college and for years quietly liked each other from a distance, assured that they’d never have a chance. Last autumn God’s perfect will and timing was made clear as they arrived to that happy place of togetherness. So happy I could give this illustration of their gorgeous love and can’t wait for that sparkly June day. (which I’ll happily live from the other side of a camera. ftw! :])
(Sidenote: a decent superpower would be feeling like genuine best friends with everyone I photograph, it makes such a difference! that or getting this kind of unreal golden evening light more often. I’m flexible.)
