Laura and Billy.

What a lovely time we had setting the mood for this gorgeous couple whose love for each other is so palpable here - especially in that last shot which is probably my favorite.  I wanted these flowers to feel like love - complex and sensual - a journey through both light and dark. For me this shoot was all about juxtaposition. Marrying competing design elements - lush and stark, light and dark, soft and hard. In that marriage lies the portrait of a love that is multifaceted and changing. Enduring.
