If absence makes the heart grow fonder, these two are more fond of each other than anyone else I’ve ever met. The majority of their relationship has been long-distance.
Those of us who have done long-distance know that the actual distance doesn’t matter; it’s not about how far you are from each other. It’s the time that goes by and the life events that occur while your other half is missing. But when you see them again, it’s nothing but love and cuddling up and fingers intertwined and smelling their skin and tracing the wrinkles on their face from smiling so hard and just being surrounded by their warmth. It’s like Christmas every day.
When I think about my ideal client, it’s couples like Anna and Justin. I mean, yes. They are very cute, and that’s nice too. But I’m talking about go-with-the-flow, down to earth, laid back couples who are down for anything. Like me texting them an hour before their session, “hey I found an even better location 10 minutes from the original location… want to switch?” Or when I said, “so there’s a river…. want to get in?” Justin just rolled up his pants and went straight in!
A little bit of dancing, a whole lot of kissing, and a few “WHOA WATCH YOUR STEP!”s later, and we were drying off and heading back up to the cars. This river was at the very bottom of a valley, and the trek back up to where we started was actually a bit of a hike. I mean… I feel like I’m pretty in shape, but I was out of breath! We took a break halfway haha!
This is why I absolutely love travel sessions. How weird and fateful that I would be traveling to another state, just a few hours away from Anna at the exact same time that Justin would be flying in to visit Anna? I feel so lucky to have been able to be at the right place at the right time and to watch their love bloom :’)
