Emilie & Ethan scooped up my heart and tossed it back in time. Sweet nostalgia for a time in which I never lived filled me and my creative spirit this week. Such darling love, surreal simplicity, and vibrant dancing are marks of this unique couple, and so many parts of them remind me of Brian and I as we were dating (only they are a lot cooler).
As I got to know Emilie & Ethan, I was reminded of this photograph that I have loved my whole life. These are my grandparents. This picture was taken, I would guess, in the 1940s and became the inspiration for this photo session. (Another small quirky side note is that Emilie & Ethan have rollerblading as a key element in their personal love story and my grandparents were competitive roller skating dancers.)
