I met Paul while working on a Dwell photoshoot featuring some of his beautiful work. Paul’s an architect. It’s fascinating meeting someone in a space they’ve created. Surrounded by their vision from ceiling to floor. He was engaged, one thing led to another and before I knew it I was scheduled to meet Paul and his fiance Jay for lunch in another one of Paul’s stunning designs Commissary.
There’s a million different ways to see couples, a million dynamics to the relationship. For my work I personally find it easier to create photographs if I can create a small narrative about the two. Based on what they’ve told me and then how I see them interact.
So sitting in front of me at lunch I could see love, partnership, wildly intelligent and handsome men. Paul with his quick wit and Jay with his big beautiful smile. Paul designs these inviting, inspiring spaces and when Jay’s there his fills it with his charisma and warmth. This pair is magnetic and I felt so special that chose me to tell their wedding story.
The day was intimate and heartfelt. Their friends and family just as wonderful as they are. My hope is that the photos convey that feeling. Joy, happiness and celebration. While editing their photos I couldn’t help but have Love & Happiness on repeat.
So hit play and enjoy…
