This is an image captured during a recent engagement session in downtown Des Moines. We initially went outside to capture some outdoor images of the couple on a windy, very cold December day last year. The temperature with the windchill was below zero. After braving the cold, we found some more comfortable areas out of the wind. This is one image from that portion of the day. I find so much to love about this image. The intimacy of the couple sharing an affectionate kiss. The intimacy of this, I feel, is emphasized by their eyes being closed and the suggestion solitude of the surroundings. The texture of this grungy urban background also lends to the solitude while providing a wonderful background canvas to frame the couple. To view more from this session and others, click here.
