Stories with pictures and sometimes the other way around.
This picture is the first installment in a series of original, fantasy-based portraits my friends and I will working on this fall and winter. Much love to everyone who helped on this shoot.

If you look at the origins of this relationship, you’d come to understand that this romance is a once-in-a-lifetime anomaly, brought to fruition by a god with a crude sense of humor and impeccably good timing. From a horrendous first impression, to awkward Facebook conversations, to impromptu photoshoots—she and I are still baffled by the conditions under which our romance has managed to thrive.
But when we sit next to each other and interlock hands in 23 degree weather, the madness leading up to this point sort of just makes sense. Not in the mathematical probability sort-of-sense, or in the way that common-sense-is-actually-really-relative sense. It makes sense in the way that midday-lunches-with-her-are-far-more-comforting-than-actual-sleep-itself sense.
Because I dream better when the tea is Earl Grey and the packet of sugar is her smile.

Beauty and the Beast style proposal. Props to my good friend and fellow photographer Kyle Bialick for inviting me to shoot this paramount moment.
It was an honor, good sir. You’ve inspired me to be just as wild when I pop the question myself to that lucky lady.
