    Beautiful, love the coffee mug that was also captured in the photo

  • Someone told me to remove that. I kinda thought about it then thought no, because it was part of the moment. I may do it for artistic reasons, but for the couple, I’m keeping it in. It was a cold morning and they were both drinking mugs of coffee to keep warm and then snuggled like this at the end of the dock for me. It just works!

    I love that you kept this one in color


  • Thanks Micki! I actually did a yellow midtone to give it more of a romantic/warm feeling. I thought it looked to flat in just two tone! I’m glad you agreed with my choice!!

  • Oh creep all you want! This one was my fave too! I actually looove doing the artsy ones, but at the same time I knew they needed real portraits, so this was my one shot to do what I really wanted! I’m so glad it worked so perfectly!

    lovely. love the silhouette of the coffee mug, it’s more significant and less staged. perfect job.

  • Aw, I’m glad you said that! Again, someone told me to crop that out and I didnt want to. It was important to the shot because it was in the moment! I’m really enjoying hearing everyone tell me they like it there! Vindicates my choice! ;-)
