Just some gorgeous lovers at sunset. These two babes are the definition of dreamy. We chased the sunset for their Cherry Beach portraits on a particularly windy day, in a turbulent vortex of sand and hair. I’m often reminded that couples are not naturally comfortable in front of the camera, so I rely on my own personality to help get them comfortable without forcing anything. Some photographers work off of a mental list of poses, others write down scenarios on cue cards and have couples randomly pick some out to reenact. I literally show up to shoots with almost no plan. Sometimes over planning can kill the spontaneity and genuine moments that can occur, and that is the complete opposite of what I try to achieve when documenting couples.
