refuge of love

this is from the story i'm working on with tom and theresa, the disabled couple. i'm following them through may of next year when they plan on marrying. i spent part of thanksgiving with them today - their assisted living facility had a tday lunch.

what an amazing day.

this was after their lunch - they got on an elevator to go back to their apartment, and theresa looked up to tom and said i love you so much. he ( is blind ) reached out his hands for her face and kissed her strongly. i felt in awe of this, so much so that when i was photographing them i said "this is beautiful" - i was so moved that it just slipped out from my mouth.

i felt very lucky today to be a photojournalist.

happy thanksgiving.
