From Ecuador to the USA

Adorable, supportive, and being utterly lost in the care for each other, these two (supposedly nervous) reflect a genuine love that is so pure and so romantic. I love the art of capturing expression and they both definitely provided my with a lot of opportunities to get moments that will forever be loved on by […]
