There is nothing like a couple in love. Since I was a little girl I’ve always been a hopeless romantic and it still gives me joy to see a happy couple. My good friend Lance (we met back in the seventh grade) and his girlfriend Rachel are one of the happiest couples I’ve seen. They met through a ballroom dancing group at UC Davis called Telemark Dance Troupe back in 2009 and have been together since 2010. I met them up in Davis at the beautiful arboretum to take some photographs of them. I have been meaning to photograph them for some time now, but schedules have never synched up until recently. It was a beautiful (slightly hot and mosquito-infested) day and we had a fun time walking around this beautiful area of Davis’s campus.
Since they are both dancers, they definitely had the dancer posing down perfectly. Unfortunately I haven’t seen them in action, but the little preview I had was wonderful. Thank you Lance and Rachel for letting me photograph you! Hope you enjoy these portraits.
