I am in love with this photo for so many reasons. First and foremost this couple is like family to me. Aside from that I really like the “noise” (i.e. grain) in this particular shot. I typically prefer crisp photos but this specific photograph feels more timeless to me with a little grit in it. I also can’t help but feel that this newly engaged couple is looking ahead to a future filled with adventures that they are ready to experience as a unified team. Their slight smiles seem to indicate that they alone share a secret that we will never know. Even though I was standing on the beach, it is evident that there is an intimacy that I was never part of. Isn’t love grand?
In case you’re curious, this is the full shot prior to being cropped:

I can’t say what the magic formula was for this session but I had very little editing to do. The morning light was divine, this family was ridiculously lovely, our location was picturesque, and the two little boys had big plans for fishing and exploring. I had meant to take a few family photos but I just couldn’t stop shooting! I am including a small chunk of their gallery because I have too many favorites - particularly the one featuring the frog that we caught over and over again. Poor thing, I hope he didn’t croak! (So sorry, I just couldn’t resist…)
