Do you think photos of you and your partner have to be the typical shots of you jumping in the air, holding balloons, or the usual routine of stiff, awkward and staged cookie-cutter poses? Banish the thought! This is a more romantic – and full of feelings – portrait session.

They’re romantic, classic and really capture our feelings toward each other. Working with G.E. was an amazing experience!
