There's a moment that gives a peek into the real tone of the relationship on the other side of the lens.

A pair, bold and excited about their love, will always yield amazing shots.

Their tender care for one another confirmed their comfort with each other.  No matter their challenges, it was apparent loving one another was done with an innate ease.

Their ease made it less challenging for me. I did not have to work for the right moments.

And neither did they.  They were so at one with the each other quick giggles...

Soon turned to one of the most desiring and joyfully encouraged gazes.

The lighthearted nature of their young adult love, was a reminder of my own younger marriage. Seven years in, three kids later, I was reminded of the love that brought us to the point we are at now. And instantly, I grew deeper in love with my husband.  Their passion was still new, still so many surprises coming to them.

Even in quiet moments where they simply cherished one another.

Laughter was still present. Genuine enjoyment of each other's company was evident.

And I was so happy to partake in it, if only for a few hours.
