many many sunsets ago
these two got engaged
and i documented this time.
this session was tender and full of emotion. the close and intimate kind
as well as the silly and playful kind
don't you just love the shape of these two?
their love and connection is so damn clear to me. which is why photographing them was a breeze and an absolute pleasure.
jake and alley marveled in the small things around them - like this massive and oddly beautiful spider's web
my husband would have freaked out at the site of it.
these two look as if they are enjoying a captivating scene.
like i said before - the shapes that these two create together are so beautiful. dynamic. unique. and captivating for me, as a photographer, to capture.
hence the reason i'm going to bombard you with images from this session from ages ago (in internet world, at least. these are from 2018.) hey now, i'm still relevant and trendy af! ... you'll see! 😜
you witness so much ease in these images; i feel.
i could likely share and post these images for days. that how i feel about pretty much every session of mine. which is why it's so hard for me to just produce produce produce and move on so quickly all the time. sometimes i'd like to soak my own work in. soak in these photographs that i so lovingly created. for this loving pair.
often i struggle as a photographer/artist to feel good about my work on a consistent basis. i feel as if i am never good enough nor will i ever reach the standards i hold for myself (which is often elevated like crazy when i start comparing myself to others, like while using instagram)
so right now, i'm going to choose to love my work. not out of ego. but out of love for myself and the priceless moments the three of us shall not forget thanks to our collaborative documentation.
together, we made images that will bring them back to this moment in time.
and how do we expect to move forward without, sometimes, looking back?
just enough to recall:gratitude
and to help us recognize our own growth
ooo the one above is a favorite
don't these two just sparkle with life?
i believe so. greatly so.
the birds 😍 tiny and awesome
cozying up on the ground like a coupla cuties
this is the same location where these two would later get married. i will share those images in another post - which will be REASONABLY way longer since i have 8 + hours of images :)
kk tata. for now.
