Vlad & Jessica

I get giddy and nervous right before I go into a shoot. Sometimes I get really nervous.. I think, what if I take really bad pictures.. what if I get tongue-tied and can’t give clear direction to my models.. what if I’m just plain awkward and weird… I mean, it’s not like I know what I’m doing half of the time. I’m learning something new every day… but when I hold my camera, it feels like it belongs in my hands. It feels right..

These photographs are of a beautiful couple, Jessica and Vlad… real life version of Barbie and Ken. Oh, but they’re so much more than just pretty faces. They’re genuine, sweet, kind-hearted, down to earth, and really just a pleasure to photograph. Their love story is a beautiful…

The way they looked at each other. The way they smiled and laughed. The way they held each other. The way they interacted… I wanted to capture it all. I realized that THIS is what makes my heart so happy.. photographing love; the real, teasing, loving, fun, quirky, unique kind of love. I just love LOVE.

I hope these pictures make you smile just a little bit. Enjoy them!
