Just Because Love Letters

Editorial, Radian Photography

August 24, 2017

Early this year, we had the chance to shoot this beautiful editorial session at Merry Hill in Mebane, NC. We loved learning more about Cheyenne and Josh’s relationship and capturing these images for them. We hope they inspire you to express love “just because” more often, whether that’s through a letter or through other means!

Cheyenne and Josh were friends from the very beginning. They met through a mutual friend and connected immediately. Though they did not begin dating right away, they instantly felt comfortable with each other, and that comfort led to mutual respect and a deep bond and is the reason they say they fell for each other so quickly and easily. They have grown together over the four years of their relationship, and during that time they have also supported each other as they grew as individuals, graduating from college, choosing careers, and making important life decisions.

Perhaps the quality that has strengthened their relationship the most is the ease with which they share their feelings. It is also what they love most about their relationship—they love their conversations that solidify their future and their love for one another. So when we asked them if they would be willing to write each other love letters to share during their photo shoot, they said yes without hesitation. In a beautifully intimate moment, they shared their letters with one another. Cheyenne later shared: “Writing the letters made us acknowledge our feelings for one another and realize how much our love has grown.  When hearing each other’s, it only confirmed that our feelings are mutual.”

These photographs, taken on a hybrid of film and digital, serve to remind us that relationships do not momentous occasions to deserve recognition and celebration. Sometimes it is worthy enough to take time to simply write a love letter to your beloved, telling them why you love them, and reminding yourself that you are building something unique and beautiful.
