When a friend of mine asked me to help make her vision come to life for a couple she wanted to gift an engagement session to I was super excited. The vision: create photos where the old fashion values of the wife serving her husband and cleaning the house meets the current reality of today’s relationships and marriages. What is the current reality? Well, I suppose it’s different for every couple but one thing that was crystal clear during this sweet couple’s session was that David looked at Holly, dressed in her apron and high heals, like she was the most beautiful person he’d ever seen. The love that these two have for one other spoke volumes as they played “house” in front of the camera. It may be one of the most adorable things I’ve ever seen. It reminds me of the love language, “service to others” and how showing love through acts of service to your husband is not old fashioned at all but that it can, in fact, be sexy. Channeling my inner housewife is something I could be better at in my own marriage and I love how this photo shoot reminded me of that.
Thank you Holly and David for being such amazing sports during your session. Here are some sneak peak images!
