While visiting Barcelona, Spain, I got to take some portraits of Jose and Toni together. They were so sweet and tender with each other, and their love was palpable. You could tell they were so comfortable in that space of being with someone for a long time.
They sent me a little bit of their story:
"Nos conocimos en una noche cuando salimos con unos amigos que teníamos en común y asi varias noches, el 8 Febrero en el cumpleaños de Toni mis amigos hicieron una cena sorpresa y Jose también estuvo allí, fue un flechazo a primera vista, como si cupido el dios del amor nos juntó con su flecha del amor. Todavía estamos enamorados después de 10 años juntos."
Translated into English,
"We met on a night when we went out with friends we had in common. Several nights later, on February 8th, Toni's birthday, my friends made a surprise dinner, and Jose was there, too. It was a crush at first sight, as if Cupido, the God of love, united us with his arrow of love. We are still in love! After 10 years together!"
Their favorite songs goes like this,
"Those stars look so beautiful
They love the music
They are like you
They are like you
No, no, I am not perfect I
already know, there is no doubt
But I am the perfect one for you
"What sweet ingenuity,
How tender under the sun,
How keen to live,
Time, the sea and you and me."
