Last spring, I had the idea to do some photographs of marriage, rather than just weddings. I wanted to spend some time photographing married or committed couples going about their normal lives, particularly doing things that make them feel most at home or happy in their relationship. I thought it would be great to show that there doesn’t have to be a big white dress involved in order to celebrate your love through photographs.
It took me a while to find the perfect couples for this project and even longer to make our schedules work, especially once wedding season started. I found Karen and Lisa thanks to a tip from someone on my Facebook page and I’m so happy I did, because I think this session is absolutely beautiful, with the summery floral colours and couple’s bright style, sweet dogs, and the obvious love and friendship that come from this relationship of ten years.
