He hates having his picture taken, but wanted to do this for her.
Classically Kingston, they met at Stages three years ago and have been in love ever since. These are their first pictures together since they can remember.
We're happy we caught them on one of their rare mutual days off, wandering the waterfront, searching for Pokémon.
I live in Kingscourt, an area in north Kingston. I love the quiet tree-lined streets and the 1940's vibe created by the awesome little war-time houses. This 'hood and my cool neighbours, Caitlin and Dave, were the driving force behind this vintage-inspired shoot.
To shoot with film is to be restrained. There isn't much room for error. You're limited by the light meter, and by the number of frames. I love film for the way in which it slows me down and makes me think about and appreciate what I'm doing a little bit more.
We found them in Kingston's busy restaurant quarter, near the waterfront, holding hands like love was what kept them afloat.
We took no more than ten minutes of their time.
They wondered if they should pose, and we said, 'no'.
They asked again, and we repeated.
We talked with them and watched them watch the water. And photographed them in all their youth & splendour.

We want *real* love, raw, & unplanned. unposed. Quirky Love hits the streets looking for the type of love that doesn't need fuss.
