"I Fucking Love You"

First off, sorry for the f-bomb but I like to keep things as authentic and real as possible and that's what was said.  

Often times when I create from my personal experiences, I allow you, the viewer, to draw whatever interpretation you want from my more creative and conceptual images.  This year I plan on sharing more of myself and the inner workings of my mind, resulting in more projects like this one.  

I constantly have different ideas and thoughts running across my mind, usually while in the car or driving, that never end up making it to paper.  The other day I decided to record what was on my mind using VoiceMemos on my phone.  

I spent that night wide awake thinking of how I wanted to make a video for it, the next day I messaged Kenneth (an awesome hairstylist I'd worked with before) and him and his fiance agreed to be a part of it.  The next day we spent about 30 minutes wandering around Downtown with the only instruction from me being that I was going to follow them around holding hands, kissing, showing connection and feeling between the 2 of them.  They fucking killed it!  And to be completely honest I'm pretty surprised at how well I did! 

I'm still so shocked and grateful when people agree to be a part of what I believe to be somewhat crazy ideas.  The goal was to focus on the beauty and positive of something I experienced earlier this year and as I was filming I felt nothing but warm and fuzzies and a feeling of love.  Love really is all around so if you feel like you're lacking it in some department then maybe spend some time with your favorite couple that's in love.  I know I felt pretty high after hanging around them for them for that short amount of time.  I Fucking Love You all and thanks for watching...and listening!
