When she looked at him, he pressed his forehead into hers as though her eyes were a vision he couldn’t draw away from. His arm slipped around her waist, pulling her against his hip. Her eyes closed. A smile danced across her lips. He noticed and stole it with a kiss.
Their passion was evident during our photo session as I watched them through my camera lens. In the way they held each other, walked together, cuddled together, I saw love come alive. It was like I wasn’t even there. I would guide them with occasional suggestions, but then they were off in their own little world, seemingly oblivious to me or anyone else around them.
“I’ll tell you what I love about Angelica: she’s strong,” said Jacob. “I feel I could leave her in any situation and she’d manage. It’s inspiring.”
Jacob and Angelica spent some time during their recent trip to Maui to gather some once-in-a-lifetime photos with each other, and I was privileged to be one of the lucky photographers who got to work with them.
“I love that our relationship not only feels like a romantic partnership, but also a solid and supportive friendship too,” said Angelica. “He’s always the best part of my day.”
While on Maui, Jacob and Angelica have found a deep appreciation for the sunrises and sunsets, the warm weather, and the beauty of the rural quiet as well as the convenience of the bustling city areas.
“You can find empty beaches if you want to,” said Angelica, “and you can also find lively beaches and streets packed with tourists. It’s the best of both worlds.”
Jacob and Angelica love to travel. In fact, they seem to thrive off the many opportunities to travel the world and collect precious memories and experiences to enrich their lives.
At the end of the day, however, they are content to return home and snuggle with their cats.
It’s one of their secrets to maintaining their interest in one another and keeping the romance alive: never hesitate to adventure together, and always remember to return home and snuggle.
