Courtney and Taylor’s love story began not unlike many others. They had mutual friends, would hang out together, and when they went out they would see each other. Over time they became more friendly and flirty with each other. Taylor is openly lesbian, and Courtney until this point had only been interested in men. Because of this it took quite some time for their relationship to develop.
One late night at a concert, in a dark room filled with people, just colored strobes lighting up the silhouettes of their faces, they caught each others’ gaze. The music was blaring loud enough to feel the vibrations in your body, but all Taylor could hear was her heart pumping in her chest. This was her chance. Not knowing what the outcome would be, she reached her hand around Courtney’s neck and kissed her. As she let out a breath she didn’t know she had been holding, Courtney kissed her back.
And as they say, the rest is history.
This was a dream come true session for me. I love working with couples who are so obviously in love with each other. These two couldn’t get enough of one another, which made my job so enjoyable. They laugh and joke around together, and in the next moment they are sinking into one another, breathing each other in like only soulmates can do.
