One of the things that I absolutely love about being a portrait photographer is the people I have the honor of meeting through this little business of mine. Stephanie and Jeison have known each other for years and are actually high school sweet hearts. They’ve been through so much of their lives together- the homecoming football games, the proms, the first day of college as well as their college graduations. Their relationship is one of simply enjoying and choosing the other’s company- a friendship that can only come from years of being together. On a sunny summer afternoon we escaped to the forest where I photographed these two hugging and snuggling under huge pine trees. There was not a soul near us that day and it was truly special to observe the kindness and the authenticity of Stephanie and Jeison’s relationship. These two get married tomorrow, and words can not express how thoroughly excited I am to capture their big day.
