I love capturing candid shots like this. Completely undirected, genuine, and passionate. It was clear to me that these two shared a strong bond. But these two had a horrible history. They had their ups and downs just like any other couple but on top of that they conquered their history and moved forward to the future. These two are a real inspiration to me as a photographer. As someone with a dark past myself I understood their pain turning into strength, and we connected very well based on that.
It's amazing what comes out of tragedy, the beautiful connections we build. Facing adversity, we find our true nature. Conquer your adversity, and you become a hero to yourself.
