This session served as a release for Ariele. She was searching for a way to heal after the end of her own relationship, and capturing love in its purest form helped her to begin. “The love they shared, the connection, and their uplifting spirits made me want to find a love like that… When I met Carlie and Jared, I knew their love is the rarest kind. It’s pure, it’s raw, and it is everything love should be… Their hearts are so connected. Every time they look at each other, there is this glimmer in both of their eyes.” Although the weather was cold and showers were forecasted the day of the shoot, something miraculous occurred. After almost two days of continuous rain, the downpour stopped for ninety minutes, seemingly just for them, allowing Ariele to capture this incredible session.
Mother Nature was certainly on their side, and we are oh so thankful!

“Everyone deserves to find someone in their lives that makes all their insecurities go away, someone who never makes them feel inadequate and someone who truly loves them for who they are.”
“My vision for this shoot was just to showcase true love and to dress up Carli’s wheelchair, to match her beauty. I had not seen anything like it online before, and I wanted to do something different to showcase how differences make us beautiful.”

“…Jared has helped me accept and love myself for everything that I am, wheelchair and all. I used to NEVER post pictures of myself in a wheelchair and now I can, proudly and confidently… It sounds so simple, but Jared did that for me. He’s loved me and supported me and never ever ever treated me any [differently] for being in a wheelchair.”
