Description of body of work:
The only images of marriage that we usually see are the idealized, romanticized photographs of the engagement and wedding. Marriage is a beautiful relationship between two people, and most often, a person’s spouse is the only individual with whom he or she can truly drop the façade and ideal self that they create for approval. The goal is to visually tell the story of the couple and give a representation of who they are through a portrait in their home and accompanying images of the spaces and items inside the home.
