I love engagement photos. There’s so much I learn about a couple just by taking their photos. I see how they look at each other. I hear them make each other laugh. I feel their connection. And after spending an hour or two with them, I know exactly what kind of magic I’m going to capture on their wedding day.
Hope and Shane are awesome. I’ve said it a hundred times and I’ll say it again – I love my wedding couples. These two are no exception. Wanna know one of the main things I love about them?
The almost kiss.
Ah, I love the almost kiss. Its that split second of passion before the lips touch. But what makes the almost kiss so incredible is that not every couple can remain in that almost kiss space. If you have a man and a woman who are truly and passionately in love with each other, they can remain frozen in time in that magical place. Satisfied and at peace knowing they are close to the one they love, but longing to be even closer. At that moment, its as if nothing else in the world matters.
I present to you the almost kiss:
I am inspired by all kinds of love stories. What I found most inspiring about Hope & Shane is that they’ve been together for what some may consider a pretty long time, yet its clear to see that the love and passion they share for one another rivals that of a couple who are still in that “la la” period of bliss at the beginning of the blossoming relationship. Add on top of that a level of trust, understanding and comfort that only comes with years of being together and what you have is, well, perfection. They’re just one of those couples you know will be happily together for the rest of their lives. As I look back through these photos, I see how much they make each other smile. One more key ingredient to lasting happiness.
