True love (Explored!) (1.5)
Out of all the portraits I took at the staff Valentine's Day luncheon, this is the one I love the most. The couple had a great time trying on hats and other props to get their look just right, but the pose was spontaneous. Sometimes, when you're photographing people, a bell goes off in your head saying "red alert! Snap the picture NOW!" That was the case here, and I'm so glad I captured the moment, because it's so sweet, with her classically romantic pose and his half-embarrassed, half-delighted expression in response.
