“You fall in love with the most unexpected person at the most unexpected time.” Unknown
Honestly, I did not expect this to happen at all. When I divorced, I was convinced that I would never have any kind of serious relationship again. I didn’t want to go through the emotional turmoil that I had experienced during my marriage. I was convinced that relationships had to be rough and I was perfectly fine being single for the rest of my life. Then along came this man that turned my world upside down in the best way possible and captured my heart. Next thing you know, we are doing a “couple’s photo shoot”! I definitely did not see this coming.
I look at these photos taken by the Very Uniquely Gifted photographers, Bonnie and Gabriel Al-Rifai of 2 Birds Photography and think who is that woman who looks so content? I can’t believe it’s me! This incredible man has opened my eyes up to so much more love than I thought was possible. I have learned that relationships can be amazing. I want to encourage all who fear that true love is just for the movies. It is possible to find that person that loves you just as much as you love them and when you do, it will be worth all you went through to get there.
Ronny and I have been together for 2 years and have been photographed by many people but I have never seen photos like this. I am so glad that we agreed to connect with these 2 Birds! Their approach to a couples photo shoot fit us perfectly. No awkward poses, no fake smiles, it was just Ronny and me being exactly who we are and loving our lives together.
I will treasure these captured moments of our laughter and love. I know that one day, I’ll be able to look back at these photos and see that this was just the beginning of a wonderful life together.
