The Look of Love


Yesterday after work I shot a wedding. Always a lot of fun. I'd set up a "studio" in the home of the parents of the groom, a lovely English couple. I was adjusting lights to take some photos of come dear friends and they were talking. She looked up at him and the way he smiled at her with such adoration prompted such a look of love and passion between them that it was breathtaking. When she closed her eyes and tilted her head back to kiss him I said to hell with the lights and snapped the pic. I loved it so much that I did a little creative photoshopping to give it a more romantic glow and it became one of my favorite shots of the day. I call it Love. What a beautiful thing to see such passion and love in people who have been together more than 30 years. Rare and beautiful. I was so thrilled to have caught the moment! Naturally, I wanted to share it with you. After all, you can never have too much love in the world.
Wishing you and wonderful weekend filled with love and laughter of your own!

Thats wonderful to be so full of passion and love for each other after 30 years. And it was immortalized on film.

Yep, the hopeless romantic, that's me. And hey Les!!! Suprised to find you here but very happy. For those who don't know, Les is one of the loves of my life - my best friend, teacher (he's only the world's best photographer) and "partner in crime" on book covers. And uh, the guy I've been trying to interview forever(not so subtle hint!!)

Hope you're all having some passion and romance this weekend!!

Gorgeous shot. Yesterday was 38 for us, and those photos are to be treasured. I dragged out our own album and felt inspired enough to post my own blog entry.
