Awkward Couples


Until these photographs Thomas and I didn't have any decent pictures together. There was the odd shot at a party that a friend captured as they documented the night, but other than that there was relatively no photographic proof that we are ever together. I thought an afternoon exploring the abandoned star barn and snapping a few pictures with my usual self-timer and tripod method could be time well spent. Of course, I hadn't guessed how awkward it was to pose for the camera with a partner and take "cute couple shots." Framing was more difficult with two people and then there were the questions of "where should we look?" "um, should we hold hands?" and a number of poses we thought would look nice, but just ended up being utterly ridiculous. Of course, I often laugh at myself while I take pictures (usually due to tripping) and this set was no exception--through all the misses and awkwardness they were quite fun to capture.

I'm wearing:
thrifted hat (similar)
UO blouse
Seychelles boots (old, similar)

Thomas is wearing:
River Island jeans
Hushpuppy shoes

  17. I love this post for so many reasons! First, it's fun to get a glimpse of something more personal (even though personal style IS very personal) and get to know even a bit more about this lovely person behind the blog. And secondly, the pictures are so sweet, without looking cheesy! :)

  29. You two are absolutely adorable!! I've been with my boyfriend for roughly 2 years and have never done a shoot with him. But seeing how cute your photos are I must do something for Vday. The cute thing about your shoot is how candid they are and not completely staged. I love how you matched in red together.

  31. Beautiful pictures of a beautiful couple. You look amazingly good together. You can see the chemistry in the photographs. I'm sooo happy for you, and Thomas, that you found each other. I get a bit emotional of looking at this type of pictures, it reminds me of an old love of mine.

  32. what a fun way to enjoy my cuppa!
    like everyone has commented: how utterly
    adorable and twee! The red pops of color standing out against the landscape and barn - perfection!
    There is nothing more refreshing than seeing natural
    happiness in a 'not trying to hard' fashion! Classy as always and what a cute couple!

  40. Aww, you guys are adorable together! Now I'm thinking I should take pix of my bf and me together. In six years of dating, I've always been too camera shy. I'm very petite like you, and I always date guys much taller and athletic looking than I. That pic where you're standing next to each other and he's kissing you is sooo cute!
