When I took these pictures of Matt and Kristine, they had been married for 2 years. (Now they have a cute little boy who has been added to their family!) We went to a park in Missouri where we had some fun taking pictures. It was nice to take pictures of such a natural and loving couple. We went around to a variety of places and the weather worked really well for us. This was back in April of 2012. Not to mention that they are such a good-looking couple!
I’m a sucker for good lighting and so I was happy that I had the green Missouri trees in the background combined with the lighting to allow a gorgeous backdrop. It was nice to have such a natural couple because they weren’t afraid to be serious and have fun.
There’s something about pictures of couples. You can see the love they have for each other and that’s why I love photographing people. I love being able to see emotions and connections in an image. There’s just something neat about photographs. They really are worth a 1,000 words.
I have a quote that is one of my favorites. It is by the Walt Disney Company: ““Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.”
