For starters, I’ve known Paul for quite some time. A childhood friend who was always supportive in all that I set out to achieve. He had reached out to me about some couple photos, nothing too crazy, just a few photos to capture the essence and convey the story of his relationship with Jin. A few texts back and forth told me that they didn’t really know what they wanted to do or what direction they wanted to go with this shoot. I’d mentioned the botanical gardens in Staten Island. A few texts later and I’d read, “we’re in“. That was all it took to confirm that this would be something special for all of us. Jin and Paul, you’re an amazing couple, and you’re amazing friends as well. I hope that you remember these photos and the story you’re a part of.
This is Jin and Paul.
Thank you guys for letting me capture the small moments you share, I wish you all the best.
