Maria & Casey // Lucky in love

"I wrote notes on her skin in flesh toned permanent ink that would sink and sit inside as I tried to underline the important parts of her: bellybutton, birthmark, collarbone. And I wrote notes explaining that hers felt like silk stretched over stone."

- Shane Koyczan

Maria & Casey, on an overcast and rather blustery day, walked arm in arm together on the cobblestones downtown, giggling at each other, and as a beam of sunshine burst through the clouds, their foreheads touched together into a heart and they came in closer for a kiss.

Ah, these two and their grand fairytale.

I'm pretty sure Maria got both of her birthday wishes: a truly wonderful man, and a photo shoot with him.
