I must say, of all the cyber places you could have ended up, i’m certainly glad you chose to be here. Viewing my site is best accompanied by your choice of beverage; i recommend sweet tea, hazelnut macchiato, or prosecco. That, and 80's music, preferably from the breakfast club soundtrack.

The Loving Type

May 27, 2014

What could be more romantic than love letters itself? The words of powerful men revealing their vulnerability only for the women who have stolen their hearts. The concept itself is swoon-worthy, but then you add hand written elements, burgundy peonies, and capture it all on film and the combination will leave you absolutely enamored.

There aren’t enough words to describe the gratitude in my heart for the vendors that helped make this shoot a reality. Amanda and I have been dreaming of the inspiration behind The Loving Type for months, and to see the end result curated so beautifully is an overwhelmingly incredible feeling.

“be patient – only through quiet contemplation of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together – Be calm; for only by calmly considering our lives can we achieve our purpose of living together.- be calm – love me – today – yesterday – What yearning with tears for you – you – you my life – my everything – farewell – oh continue to love me – never misjudge the most faithful heart of your Beloved.” -An excerpt from Ludwig van Beethoven’s famous love letter, “My Immortal Beloved.”
