When you’re photographing a love like theirs, it never truly feels like “work.”
I spent some time with Laura and Jay at their house last month, so I brought my camera…surprise, surprise. As first time home owners and not-so-new newlyweds (wow, time flies!), I thought it’d make a nice setting to take some shots in their very own environment; a place they created together.
I’ve known Laura for 5+ years now, and we instantly became close friends. In fact, I had the honor of standing beside her at their wedding a few years ago. You know that friend you can confide in about anything? Life, school, work…you name it: she’s that kind of friend.
Jay, on the other hand, nicknamed me “Bacon” within weeks of us knowing each other because he didn’t understand how I could dislike bacon. Needless to say, I enjoyed his sarcastic sense of humor and approved of him right away.
And how could I forget Niles, their little fur child? He barks the second he sees me — every time — but never likes to leave their side. While I don’t think he was a fan of the camera or that I made false promises of treats to keep his eyes in my direction, it had to happen. Sorry, little guy, I hope you’ll forgive me!
Here are a few of my favorite shots from my visit. I hope you all enjoy them!
