To me nothing is more beautiful to photograph than two people who are genuinely in love. I have worked with some stunning models; I have photographed lovely flowers and gowns, pretty invitations, and over-the-top gorgeous wedding venues. But none of those things make my heart swell like people do. Real, imperfect, loving, quirky, vulnerable people. And when two people are in love and I get to watch them share silliness, put their foreheads together, and breathe in just being together, my life is complete. These are the kind of moments that make my eyes water for no reason other than just being happy.
Here are a few favorite photos from a session with my friends Ale and Jose in Phoenix this summer. Check out Alejandra’s favorites from this session on her blog here. And read her take on printed photos here. And then if you love her blog as much as I do, you can read how she felt about being in front of my camera here. Such a beautiful session!
