Love. There is more literature and poetry out there about it than any other natural human phenomenon, save perhaps for war. And love too, can be a battlefield (well, according to Pat Benatar anyway). It’s certainly a nobler pursuit then war in my opinion, and far nicer to photograph to be sure.
One of my favourite things about couple shoots is finding the right location. I try to make each one as unique and as creatively singular as I can, and this hinges quite a lot on the couple in question. Are they outdoorsy and active people or are they nerdy and perpetually pc-bound? Do they nurture a mutual love of animals perhaps, or a certain place? There always that one special thing that lights up a spark of possibility and exploring that is a fun process. It’s inspiring to see two people love one another and it’s always a humble privilege for me when I am asked to help immortalise it.
