I had barely closed my eyes when the alarm went off, or, at least, that’s the way it felt. I had actually slept for about four hours, but it was two hours before dawn, and time to get up so that we could drive out to the site to shoot.

This site was chosen because of the beautiful landscape, and an hour before dawn, the light coming through the trees, the light that is the herald of sunrise, but without a visible source, that light was gently coming through the cover of the trees.

I shot about three hundred photos of Jared – on a bridge, near the waterfall, in the forest, and I’m very pleased with the result. I love Jared’s costume, I love that there isn’t much of it, I love that I’m married to the man in this costume, that after the shoot, he came home with me.

As much as I’m pleased with these photos, I have to say that Jared, in that morning light, is far more handsome to the naked eye than a photo could ever capture.
