Normally I would write about how wonderful it was spending time with this incredible couple on a Saturday evening. I would go on about the dreamy sunset lighting and their insane ability to look so darn perfect in front of the camera, but this couple has a unique story that I feel is worth sharing. Before every session, I ask my couples to fill out a form giving me a little backstory on their relationship and/or spouse. I received Gerry’s form and immediately realized that their story was special. So, instead of writing out their story myself, I will be sharing what they wrote about each other.
The beginning of this post is titled “Houston represents a chance,” and that’s because it’s one of the first things Mariana communicated to me when we were trying to find locations for their session. She said, “Houston represents a chance, the place where we were finally able to live our dream of being together.” This struck a huge chord with me, that this city I have taken for granted and lived in my entire life, can mean something entirely different to someone else. To Mariana, this city represented a chance, a chance for her to be with the one she loved.
