Leah + Rachel : Brooklyn After the Rain
Finding the right song for L+R was tough. Like, really tough. As in I spent the better part of an afternoon digging through the depths of Spotify. Finding the perfect song to match my images is one of my favorite parts of my workflow. Connection with my couples is everything to me. Through the emails, the phone calls, the hugs, being in front of my lens, spending hours editing...we become close. Music ties this all together in the most beautiful way.
So...finding the right song to fit my engagement session with Leah and Rachel was difficult because of how much I love these two. We spent our day hiding from the rain at their place in Bed Stuy, then said fuck it and ventured out to the Transit Museum and their old neighborhood of Park Slope. It was everything I love about my job.
Yet no matter how much I looked for the "perfect" song, I kept coming back to this song by Antony & The Johnsons (one of my favorite artists). It just felt right. It is emotional, deep and soulful, full of life with a touch of old school, upbeat, and full of personality. Just like Leah and Rachel. It was perfect.
I am so excited to share these images. Big love xx
