Michael + Nas BW {Washington DC Engagement Photography}

Can we pretend, that from now on, 
There is no yesterday?
Paint a portrait of tomorrow
With no colors from today?

Michael + Nas' "real" post is going to be tomorrow.
The usual, sweet, lovey-dovey, "here's the whole girly version of the story", colorful post will be tomorrow.
But these few in black+white real grabbed me.

It feels like a completely different shoot.
So they get their own post :D
Ballers!

"There's a light that shines
In your face sometimes,
That takes my feelings 
Wraps them around your need.

But there's shadow hiding
 In your heart sometimes
That makes my feelings 
Turn back in on me"

Can we pretend
The pain is gone?
And go our merry way?
Paint a portrait of tomorrow
With the colors?"

Yes, tomorrow we will paint in colors.
And it'll be as bright and cheery as the shoot (and this couple) really is.
But I had to get out some inner "mood."
;)

Aren't Micahel + Nas beautiful, by the way?
So beautiful.

Be back tomorrow with colorsssss!

  10. I've followed your blog for a long time, and this is by far (imho) your best engagement shoot yet. I LOVE IT. The b&w is perfect for the mood. I think you could re-order the sequence a little to tell an even stronger story. Boy meets girl kind of a thing.

    Great job- LOVE IT.
