Claire and Ryan’s story is so touching and real proof that sometimes we look for love everywhere while it has been right in front of us. If you haven’t read about them in the 202 Magazine, please take a moment to check out all of the sweet details of their love connection. My favorite part about meeting them was being able to witness the strong bond this couple has and how much fun they have together.
With the information I had about them provided by Editor-Sondra Bar- 202 Magazine, my goal in designing the concept for their photo shoot was to capture that candid connection in more structure way, incorporating some vintage elements and of course, the “old” photograph of them hugging each other. Since I’ve had Lady Antebellum’s songs playing as I typed this, I felt like “Just a Kiss” would make a perfect background song for these pictures.
“Lyin’ here with you so close to me
It’s hard to fight these feelings when it feels so hard to breathe
Caught up in this moment
Caught up in your smile”
“I’ve never opened up to anyone
So hard to hold back when I’m holding you in my arms
We don’t need to rush this
Let’s just take it slow”
“Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life“
“I know that if we give this a little time
It’ll only bring us closer to the love we wanna find
It’s never felt so real, no it’s never felt so right”
“Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No I don’t want to mess this thing up”
“I know it’s time to leave, but you’ll be in my dreams tonight”
So glad I’ve met this beautiful couple, Ryan and Claire. Wishing them many, many years of happiness together. Tomorrow I will be featuring yet another couple, Ryan and Amanda because we need to continue sharing the LOVE this month, so come back for more.
I hope you are finding good inspiration in these sessions for an annual couples photo shoot or engagement session. If you would like, feel free to comment, share or pin it but as a reminder, my logo and full credits must always be given as well as a link back to my blog. See you tomorrow!
