Black Love PDX: Sharing Your Love Story will be a photo and video series featuring couples in the Portland metro area. I’m recruiting all couples to participate in the project. Married, engaged and life partners are welcome.
The set up: Each couple will choose the place where would like the session to take place. It could be at their home, favorite restaurant, coffee shop or park (weather permitting). The photo session will last 10-15 minutes. I will interview the couple about how they met, how long did they date before getting married, funniest story to date etc. I will edit a short story featuring the couple and edit the photos that will be presented in an online gallery. I will create a photo collage that shares their story on social media. There is no cost to participate in the project, but each couple will have the option to purchase the high resolution images for personal use. My cousin Shannon Sanders will be providing the music for the video stories.
The goal is to photograph 50-100 couples by September of 2017. I’m looking forward to meeting, photographing and sharing all of the love stories next year.
