It is so heartening to meet two people whose love for one another and the world around them is undeniable, radiant. There is no feeling as sure as a good love; we know it in ourselves and those around us like we know pain, true as taste. Love has nothing to prove; it just is.
This week, Brian was able to photograph two dear Alaskan friends of ours visiting New York City after a month of European travels, Tonia and Justin, who are engaged to be married this year, and the photos speak for themselves: these are two people who are generous with their happiness and their love. Their genuine and effortless enthusiasm for all things beautiful and alive is no question, even on film. We are blessed to know them, and their friendship is something we deeply cherish. Tonia and Justin: you are an example to us all, and we love you.
