Capturing my sister in love.
The first time I met Preston we had all gotten together for a double date in a mezcal bar. He’s handsome. I mean, he’s clearly photogenic but when you meet him in person you just have to say to yourself “he’s handsome”. I watched the two of them together and it took all of 5 mins to figure out that my sister had met her husband. And I’m sorry (not sorry) to say that he is every bit as funny, polite and charismatic as he is good looking.
While getting to meet so many different couples through this business two things have really stood out to me about love: it makes you brave and it protects you.
It makes my heart beam when I hear about the way Preston treats her, then to see it in action. He calls out all the beautiful parts in her, challenges her and together they make each other better. They protect each other and they make each other brave.
For their engagement session we decided to head over to Marfa, Texas. Not quite so far that it’s impossible to get to but far enough away that you feel a sense of accomplishment once you’ve arrived. Desert, skies for days, adobe house and some Ranch Water (tequila, Topochico and fresh lime) cocktails.
So hit play (with a nod to one of my favorite movies True Romance) and scroll through to enjoy their beautiful faces against the landscape of one of my favorite places on earth.
Special note: some of these photographs were taken with my fathers 35mm camera from the 80’s
