It’s always so refreshing when a couple gets in front of my camera and just shines. The sun was shining bright that Sunday evening at 5 o’clock and I was slightly worried that Christy’s light eyes would suffer from major squint syndrome. But by Merle’s side, Christy just shined right back.
We moved from little spot to little spot around Table Rock in Laguna and every spot proved to be better than the one before. Not because the lighting was better or the background was more compelling, but because Christy and Merle just lit up together.
I used a long lens and stood back for a lot of the shots. I told them to talk amongst themselves. I directed a little, but mainly let them do their thing. And the two of them snuggled and chatted and laughed and had a blast just being together. It’s love like that that makes love look so easy and grand. Christy and Merle are just natural together, and excited about one another and happy just being together.
Christy and Merle, congratulations on your engagement. I hope your marriage proves to be easier and grander than ever. I hope you two continue to be as natural, excited and happy as you were in Laguna that day throughout your many years together to come.
