Coupled


Despite the awkwardness of our last shoot together Thomas and I were still interested in getting a few more pictures together. This photoshoot was mostly less awkward (there was a moment when some cows in a field bordering this area decided to stick their heads through the trees to watch us) although still rather difficult to shoot--it's hard enough to get the focus right on one individual when you're using a self-timer or remote and about twice as difficult to frame the image and get the correct focus when you're shooting two. Still we had fun a lot of fun messing around in this scenic little path near his home. It's also nice to have these photos together especially since my visit to Northern Ireland coincided with our one year anniversary; even if we only get a few nice pictures together once or twice a year it will be nice to have some document of our time together to look back on beyond postcards, texts, Skype chats, and so on.

I'm wearing: UO headband, Anthropologie jacket, Sheinside dress, Modcloth tights, Seychelles boots
Thomas is wearing: Aran sweater, Topshop jeans, River Island shoes

These pictures are drop dead stunning for essentially being selfies. I understand the work that goes into getting a decent outfit photo of one so I really applaud you for this excellent work! :)

Jade Sheldon-Burnsed said...

So, so darling...

~K said...

A cute collection of images. Can't say the bf and I are as photogenic so our 'couples' photos would probably be a giant fail haha and not remotely cute.

Annie Patz said...

Awe! I LOVE this post! How in the world did you get it to focus like that using a tripod? I have a hard enough time trying to take pictures of myself lol.

Nat Fraycat said...

awwwwww <3

Lucy-Jane Walsh said...

These are gorgeous! Your love for each other is really shining through your eyes and it's really nice to be able to share that with you. xx

Poses can be set up and staged, but the look in each of your faces especially when you are looking at each other, shows a love that is true and sweet, and that cannot be faked! The two of you show a love that is priceless and timeless, and even if you have shots that did not make the cut they are to be treasured as well. The description of your outfits is very anti-climactic, after seeing your faces.

Redser said...

Gorgeous photos. You look fantastic! Ireland is really suiting you.

On a practical note, I need to know is it the Irish light that makes your hair colour look so amazing? Or have you hit on the best red hair colour product ever? If it's the latter, please share. Thanks

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@Redser--I'm using the same products as usual (they're in this post if you wanted specifics) but I did touch up the color a couple of weeks ago. I think another difference isn't so much Irish sun as actual sun, most of this past winter has been very cold and overcast, I've been taking pics on grey days and wearing a hat 99% of the time.

Redser said...

Thanks for the link, I'll try the L'Oreal colour. I'm a natural red head, but the colour is getting duller as I grow older :-( One last question: do you still have to do the vitamin c/H&S trick with the L'oreal colour?

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@Redser, I haven't used it with that particular L'Oreal color. I was using that trick when I was trying to figure out what color I wanted to use, but since this box it's just been the box and done. Of course it is good to remember color will react differently on different hair--I had a friend try my color and it didn't take the same way for her.

Redser said...

Thanks again for the reply. I'll give it a go, with the vitamin C and h&s ready to go if needs be. I haven't tried a colour since Christmas when I went purpley using a Garnier dye claiming to be light auburn- I looked like a soviet cleaning lady- not what I was going for at all....
