It's Couper's Birthday! He is the very heart that my heart loves, and this post is my birthday ode to him for his 25th birthday. He is my striking husband, that I did not marry for my photographic convenience, although his modeling for lens/light testing (and just for fun) have worked out quite well for me (and him- ha!).
I wish I could describe the depth of freedom, life, and love that has grown with our marriage- in spite of the harder things we've already walked through together. I understand this is not a typical thing, and I believe it's largely true because of him. He carries this innate desire to help me constantly. He is steady, so kind, and has this creative brilliance that I have had the honor to experience so closely. Understanding and freedom are tucked in his heart, and he sees people in a way I imagine Jesus would if He was walking the earth now. He's always learning, studying, teaching me- things related to character, faith, photography, travel, imbibing, cooking- it's an amazing gift of wisdom. If you know him, you know you are better for it. He makes all of us our best.
These are a few photos I've snapped of my favorite person- in different seasons and times. Some posed, some not. Either way he is handsome as everything. I love you, Couper Cox.
