Photographing two people in love is the most beautiful experience a person can have (aside from being the one in love). These two people have shared something no one else can understand, even others who are in love. Because each love is different.
My fiancé and I love each other, but we will never completely understand the love that our close friends Matt and Linda share. There are experiences that couples have that create a different reality of their relationship from everyone else’s. Matt and Linda have been through things that my fiancé and I could never even imagine. And the same is true in reverse and for all relationships.
I don’t want to sound too cliche or mushy, but I fear that it’s impossible to avoid in this post. Love is patient. It doesn’t form overnight, but it is hard to remember that when you’re photographing people in love. You might not know anything about these two people’s relationship. You may have just met them that day, so all you know is what you see through the lens. And most of the time, that lens shows nothing but bliss. These people are in love immediately upon stepping in front of the camera. Or so it seems.
But that love has grown so much since before you even met them. And that’s what makes photographing couples so amazingly beautiful; these two people came together and experienced so much life with one another that they fell into a blissful togetherness that others can see immediately. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to capture those feelings and show them to the happy couple later on. They will thank you for it, and it will contribute even more to their relationship to have those memories captured.
By the way, if you enjoy seeing Matt and Linda’s love through the picture below, go check out the full album of the engagement photos I took for them and the save-the-dates and wedding invitations I created for their special day! The album is in the Client Showcase Gallery on this site! 🙂
