Creative Couple’s Portraits in Grand Rapids, MI | Brad + David

“Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision: You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement. It is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being ‘in love,’ which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being ‘in love’ has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those who truly love have roots that grow toward each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.”

― Louis de Bernières, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin



I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Brad and David at the Epic Workshop with one of the photographers I look up to most- Sam Hurd. We spent the day together, learning, creating, and having so much fun! I love taking time to learn and grow in my craft, and this day was incredible for that. Brad and David are the best- they went along with all the weird ideas and were totally patient while we experimented. They are such a great couple, and their love for each other is strong. I wish them the best together, and I hope our paths cross again sometime!
