Ahhh, love. Whether you’re blissfully in it, searching for it, or savoring the single life, we can all agree that nothing tugs at the heartstrings quite like a good romance. At Fracture, we believe that some of the most captivating love stories aren’t the classics on your summer reading list or the rom-coms in your Netflix queue. Instead, they are the ones that YOU have to share. We asked some of our customers to tell the swoon-worthy tales behind their photos, and we’re smitten.
Rain or Shine
The night before this couple’s wedding, photographer Holly K. asked the pair what they wanted most out of their photos. The pair answered simultaneously, “We want it to rain!”, a wish seldom heard by wedding photographers. As fate would have it, rain was on the radar for their wedding day, and Holly was prepared to capture this ethereal shot.
“I had just enough time to tape some bags around my equipment and tell them where to stand when we felt the first drop. I gave them some gentle guidance and they sky opened and started pouring. The rain only lasted long enough for me to get 4 shots – this was the first one I took. They said it was the only picture they needed from the entire day.” -Holly K.
Drew B. captures the affection of a loving couple in this heartwarming black and white portrait. The photo depicts the friendship, solidarity, and peace provided by the promise of forever.
True love knows no distance, and there is no truer love than that between parents and their child. Even across the vastest of oceans, the love shared by this young family bound them until their reunion on the shores of America.
“This photo was taken in New Zealand 1944. It was used as a passport photo prior to my mother & I sailing across the Pacific to the United States during World War II. My father met up with us upon arrival in Long Beach, CA.” -Scott M.
If you are a pet owner, you know that your furry friend is much more than just that. They are part of your family. Bryan P. and his fiancé’s one-year-old German Shepherd left such a lasting paw print on their hearts that the couple decided to include him in their engagement photos.
