i'm proud to call these beautiful people friends of mine. we've all lived in the same neighborhood for years, and this phenomenal woman and i have walked lots of life together (starting back in drama club/navigating classic high school drama). without her friendship i would be an entirely different human, and i mean that in the most sincere way possible. documenting the great love these two share is a great honor.
sidenote: due to the turnout of this session, i'm considering instituting a new rule of thumb for engagement sessions: no physical contact three to five days prior to the shoot. i realize i sound like a middle school teacher...however, look at these two! affection galore. long distance relationships have their rewards!
