I started listening to Johnny Cash after I saw a biographical movie about his life. I was moved to say the least. Despite the hardships he faced, right or wrong, or the problems that he dealt with, he had a love so deep which never died. The object of his affection; the beautiful June Carter.
From the get go, this was going to be a difficult task and I wondered how they would ever wind up together. You don’t choose love, it chooses you. And there you have it. The epitome of their story.
He worked so hard to win her over. My gosh, it was spectacular. It was truly inspiring to see and it deeply touched me.
So a few years ago, I decided that I wanted to photograph a session as a tribute to their love story. This shoot has a more modern feel to it, but nonetheless, I was more interested in capturing the essence of the pair including the sadness, the happiness, and the coyness.
I am so happy to finally share this session. It truly has never left my mind and I am glad that I was able to bring it to fruition.
Thank you to the wonderful pair, Augusto and Kelly, which helped me make it happen. They were amazing to work with. And of course to the fabulous hair and make-up artistry of Amanda Enos. Once again you show us your versatility!
