Jonathan Canlas Photo Shoot - Central Park



Danny and I had the supreme good fortune of getting some photographs taken....by the talented Jonathan Canlas....in Central Park.  Uhh - can you imagine a better scenario?! 

He was teaching a photography class called FILM IS NOT DEAD and so we were the subjects for not only Jonathan, but multiple photographers who were there to learn.  And well, since it appeared we had our own paparazzi, we had tourists photographing us, too.  :)  haha. 

So here we were, getting our chemistry documented by about 20 photographers.  And they were so taken back by our connection that they just couldn't believe that we were for real.  They thought we were professional actors, faking the part.  "So, you guys aren't REEEALLY married are you!??" they'd say.   "You have GOT to be kidding me!!" "There is NO WAY you guys aren't acting!"  They thought it was such a trip and didn't really believe that yes, we really are married.  Yes, we really are that in love.  Yes, we really are that happy.  :)  One photographer asked me on the side what our secret was.....and you all should know it by now.  But I said the secret was learning to be this happy on our own (even in our less than ideal circumstances). And so when two people who are choosing to be happy like that come together, it makes for some pretty awesome sparks *&^%$#@!!!!  

These pictures will speak for themselves, but holy crud, if you ever have the opportunity to hire Jonathan for your wedding or engagement or family, etc., just do it.  He is amazing (and so is his blog).  And he flies all over the world for shoots.  And holy crap, he was a lot of fun while shooting and made the whole thing so comfortable.
