Fiery Couple Session at Bowers Mansion in Washoe City, NV

I got to work with an awesome couple yesterday! I am a sap when it comes to love stories like theirs...

They've known each other since they were little but as life happened they grew apart. When they got to college they somehow reconnected and next thing you know they are engaged. Today, they have been married for 11 years and altogether they have been going strong for 13 years and counting. Amazing!

From the moment they stepped out of the car I immediately knew that these two take pride in everything that they do. You'd never know it by looking at them but they are parents to two young children, Bella and Enzo. Their physique is stunning and the chemistry between them is just H-O-T! It doesn't stop there though; not only are they partners in life but they are also partners in their thriving custom jewelry business Bernardo & Co. I was graced to photograph some of their pieces during the session and I am stunned at the craftsmanship and detail that they put into their art.

Lindsay and Ryan, I am honored to have been able to spend a short time with you guys. You are both wonderful as individuals but as a couple you are unstoppable. I had an amazing time getting to know a little bit about your love story, your business, and your little family. When you talk about your business, you convey passion and motivation. I am inspired; it is amazing to meet and work with other passionate small business owners just like you two. Thank you so much for gracing me with your presence for a few hours. I hope I was able to capture the love you have for one another and do your pieces justice. I hope that one day you are able to look back at these pictures and remember the adventures you had together as a power couple and entrepreneurs. Here's a quick glimpse from the session!
