When Janelle contacted me to ask me to take her and her husband’s photos here in Atlanta to celebrate their 4-year anniversary, I was overjoyed for a few reasons. First, it is always such an honor to photograph fellow photographers, especially for the second time. (You may remember Janelle’s headshot session here.) Also, I would get a chance to meet her handsome husband whom I’d heard about but only seen in pictures. Finally, the last time I photographed Janelle we had so much fun chatting and breaking a few rules. I had high hopes for what the session would hold, and I was not disappointed!
Let me just say that every time that I see Janelle I have to remind myself to stay focused and not get distracted by how beautiful and flawless her skin is. Seriously. The beauty that translates through the photos (both inside and out) is exactly as it is present in real life. And Stephen…forget about it. Most men are awkward in front of the camera, but he was completely suave…and funny to boot! I loved their chemistry and how easy they made my job. They were even mistaken as an engaged couple, which just goes to show that their love is still strong. Seeing couples who are truly in love warms my heart and makes me reflect on ways to be even more loving in my own relationship. Janelle and Stephen, thanks for trusting me to document your love just as it is today.
Below are some of my favorite photos from the session. Also, if you are on Instagram, check out the mini video from their session at #kmpmotion and feel free to follow me at @kmurrayphoto. I’d love to connect with you there!
