“Love rests on no foundation. It is an endless ocean, with no beginning or end.”
There is something about the ocean that draws us back … Perhaps it’s the soothing calm of the waves, or the endless sound of water upon the shore. Or maybe it’s the taste of the salt air, or the sound of seagulls overhead. Or perhaps it’s the beautiful creatures that inhabit the waters, with movements so graceful and foreign to us humans.
Almost all of us have sat by the ocean, mesmerized by its calm, amazed by its infinite nature. And just as many have sat at the shores of love, and felt the same. It could be argued that the same characteristics of the ocean can be applied to love in all its intricacies, from the storms to the tranquil moments to the endless depths.
When Leaigh and Jerry requested to shoot their engagement session at Monterey Bay Aquarium, we hesitated. We have seen very few great engagement session pictures shot in aquariums, and for good reason. Limited potential poses, hoards of tourists, and darkness everywhere. And especially since we can’t use flash or bring a tripod, we figured at most we’d get maybe 5 decent shots. But then we thought … hey, this sounds like a great challenge. Who says we can’t ace this one for Leaigh and Jerry! Here are the results. :)
