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

You are both adorable and those pictures are great! It's hard to pick a favourite but I do like the one sitting on the wall quite a bit. I hope you are going to frame them.

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! :)

Agnes said...

MarieBayArea said...

Omg! So cute. I die. What a good looking couple you two make.

Rosa Nguyen said...

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.

You two look perfect! <3. And the fact that the pictures came out so spontaneous makes it even more perfect ♥.

Ellen said...

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.

Lindsay Daile said...

These are DARLING!

Wendy said...

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!

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!

Bianca Y said...

Oh my GOSH these photos are ADORABLE.

Chloe H said...

These are majorly cute! I couldn't imagine what a fun time you guys had, even with all the awkward moments XXX

Isabella said...

Making yourselves face the challenge of the awkward photoshoot landed you with some PRECIOUS pictures! You guys look just lovely together and comfortable being yourselves around each other.
