sometimes it surprises me when people tell me that they don't like getting their photos taken. i get it, it's awkward to have two people pointing cameras in your direction and you are supposed to act like it's normal and happens everyday! you are somehow supposed to be relaxed and still act like there isn't anyone watching! so when meredith & jimmy mentioned and that they weren't too thrilled with the idea of having photos taken, we knew we had to find a safe place for them to relax and be themselves. we decided to shoot in the most comfortable place they knew, jimmy's loft at the old albuquerque high school. the crazy thing is that as soon as they were inside their safe place, they were themselves, comfortable, laughing, teasing, just themselves. and these two, though unfamiliar and unsure in front of the camera were just as natural and lovely as could be.
meredith & jimmy, i know it takes a lot to trust people you hardly know and be vulnerable, but we are so grateful you did. we are so happy you have the pictures to prove the love that you share and to have a record of a place that is so special to you.
