AJ (dorning the cute hat) and Watu (in the smashing green blazer) are the kinds of couples that exude love for each other, in the most adorable way!

The shoot took place in some beautiful foggy spots at Mount Davidson, San Francisco. Their photographer, Cristal Veronica, shared her story of the shoot:
“They work hard at putting their love first, while not losing sight of their individual goals and dreams. And yet, their love story is just beginning, as they are about to embark on a new chapter of their relationship in a new location. So before they leave San Francisco, the city where their love story began, I had the pleasure of spending an evening with them, capturing their smiles amid the foggy trees at Mt. Davidson.” And the location pleased the boys immensely!

About AJ + Watu

An online meet-up brought these two lovely souls together, followed by a first date at the ballet and they have been together for almost 2 years.

“AJ is a professional dancer in San Francisco and is currently dancing with Sean Dorsey Dance Company, a dance company that focuses on LGBTQ stories.”

“Watu has been a worker at various LGBTQ non-profits in San Francisco but now is preparing to begin a PhD program at Brown University this fall.”

The boys on the shoot

The boys had been photographed together before by a friend. Thus they knew what they were up for. Cristal “made us feel extremely comfortable during this shoot.” And so she should have, Cristal is a talented lady :)

“The location was beautiful and the perfect romantic shoot spot in San Francisco.”

The boys on their outfits

“We wanted to look nice, but were running late so we just threw on what looked nice together in our closet.” Maybe I should try this the next time I need an awesome outfit?!

Cristal goes on about the boys

“They are different in as many ways as they are similar. They’re handsome, educated, passionate, advocates, strong-willed, fiercely loyal, and so in love.” And super cute!

AJ + Watu’s misty mountain portrait session had all the feels, so give it some love by leaving a comment below.

Fun facts: I'm a "loud" little Latin gurl. I heart my label maker as much as I do my partner. I also like red things, leg-day and red velvet everything. My daily vocab includes "have you eaten?", "I love you" and "I farted"... not all at once or in that order. If I'm not talking to you about feelings I'd be helping you organise something.
