I have been thinking a lot lately about the people we chose to surround ourselves with. I have been making a conscious effort to be around those who lift me up and enrich my life somehow.
While shooting Teresa and Casey's engagement photographs, I noticed a sweet silence about them. They somehow, without many words, lifted each other up and enriched each other. I know sometimes it hard for people to be the focus of attention, getting their picture taken in an intimate situation can be challenging. I feel like Teresa and Casey rose to the occasion, even though they may have felt unsure about how to look or pose, once they relaxed... took comfort in each other... made each other laugh, that's when the real magic began. When those true expressions were revealed. I feel like their photographs speak of their trust and love for each other. I am happy to witness such a relationship and glad to get the opportunity to capture more of their true expressions for each other on their wedding day.
