In some ways, marriage is much like a business. Two people make a deal to love each other for their entire lives. They make a pledge to stick together through thick and thin, sadness and sickness, joy and good health. It's a commitment that takes two willing parties to forge a bond this strong.
Aimie and Nick are on their way to making the biggest business deal of their lives – they're getting married in 2017. They're no strangers to working together on something they are passionate about; the two started a photography business back in the UK and made the switch to Cyprus few years years ago.
The two are famous for their wedding photography, so I was somewhat intimidated by the thought of photographing them. However, it was the highest honor and compliment they could have paid me, and I am extremely pleased with the result. We took most of the images on the bright, shining beaches of Limassol, Cyprus, with some shots in the garden of the Four Seasons hotel.
As fellow Cyprus photographers, the three of us had wanted to meet for several months. We'd chatted on Facebook, and the time finally came when our schedules calmed down a bit. We met up for wine and good company. It was wonderful to simply watch them be together. There's this crazy energy between them that I find hard to put into words.
In truth, it was ridiculously easy to snap great photos of these lovebirds. Just looking at the pictures, you can see the passion in every pose, every glance. Their closeness is more than just physical. You can see that their souls are entwined; it's just as palpable as the taste of the salty air near the ocean or the warmth of the sun glowing on your skin.
Aimie's smile is the light of Nick's life, and it is easy to see why. The joy, love and great sense of humor are bursting from her in rays of pure delight. These two epitomize what it is to be soulmates. Their hearts were fused together with a burst of sparks the moment they laid eyes on each other.
There is one thing about Aimie that stands out above all her other qualities. Of all the couples I have photographed, I have never seen a woman with a talent like hers. Her spirit and dedication to her art goes above and beyond what most humans are capable of... and that is the ability to walk in the sand with heels. :)
Seriously, it is amazing to watch. It is like she floats across the ground the same as she would with bare feet. Well, we can't all be Wonder Woman, but Aimie is most definitely Nick's Supergirl. I wish them a lifetime of love. :)
