We scroll through these photos and get all choked up by their beauty, the realness of it all.
It feels we’re scrolling through a little portrait of humanity – the joyful parts.
The parts of staggering emotions, rushes of tears, uncontrollable laughter and smiles exchanged in secret.
Every image is of a real moment, in all its humanity. There are a few images from ‘styled’ shoots, but they were of real couples with a thousand memories and affections passed through every glance and touch.
In your scrolling, remember these are real people. Genuine photos of genuine moments. They’re going to sleep staring at that photo, tenderly framing it or mailing it and treasuring up every ounce of joy in it. The photo moves THEM, becomes THEIR legacy, and that’s why we do it.
It’s a bonus if it inspires you too.
** We can’t look through these photos without listening to a beautiful song to remind us to open ourselves up to emotion and joy and everything else these images hold. Do yourself a favor and listen to this song while you scroll:
