When one of my best friends asked us to go back to Belgium to see them before they returned to the States and to take some family photographs for them we decided that fall break would be the best time. Last time I had seen them D. was deployed and I had forgotten to take any couples pictures for them before he left. I remedied that unfortunate mistake by doing a just-couples shoot for them this time.
The shoot was a lot of fun and since I had planned on it being inside the Belgian rain didn't stop us. They laughed at attempts to guess music off my playlist and it was lovely just watching them interact and be together. The days behind and ahead may seem dark at times, but these two have much to lean on and have a deep inner strength that they can rely on.
Thank you both for showing your love for me to capture and you are in my prayers in the days ahead.
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
