Photo of the Day: While the Day Away

With my background in photojournalism, I love the idea of bringing a documentary feel to couples’ portraits. Every gesture and expression tells a story, of course, but I like to see how your love really plays out, how you really express it with each other. Of course, it’s also fun to have someone prod you along to get you to do things you might not otherwise, like kiss in the middle of traffic. But when I saw Rachel and Jonathan’s comfy couch, I knew we had to do some shooting there to see love in its natural environment.

Josh Lamkin - Beautiful. But…you weren’t by chance standing on this nice couch to take this , were you?

Thomas Lester - That’s a great shot. Snuggle time on a couch is such a great think for lovers. It’s nice to see that from a shoot. So real. Awesome, Ryan.

Ryan Brenizer - @Josh: no, I was holding my camera high in the air.

zUdio - This is awesome. Everything about it comes together in such a unique way (the light, the angle, the intimacy) that really makes this such a great photo. This inspires me to move my butt and not to be afraid to take the eyepiece away from my eyes.

gabe aceves - gorgeous.

Jessica Schilling - Love it, Ryan! So cute and cozy!
