Photographer Shoots Engagement-style Photos of a Man and His Burrito

San Francisco-based writer David Sikorski was getting tired of the lovey-dovey photos dominating his Facebook feed, so he partnered with photographer Kristina Bakrevski for a photo shoot with his own "one true love": the burrito. The duo trio traveled around San Francisco and shot stereotypical engagement photos showing Sikorski's intense love for his burrito, which was dressed beautifully in foil.

Photographer Builds a Set on a Brooklyn Sidewalk For a Stranger’s Proposal

Back in December 2014, we shared about photographer Justin Bettman's Set in the Street project that involved building elaborate "indoor" sets on outdoor sidewalks in New York City, shooting portraits on them, and then leaving them for the public to pose with.

Paris Officials Ask Tourists to Ditch the ‘Love Locks’ and Take a Selfie Instead

Ever since 2008, lovers from around the world -- about half of whom, statistically speaking, have probably broken up by now... -- have pledged their eternal love to each other by attaching a lock to the Pont des Arts bridge and throwing the key in the Seine.

It's sweet. It's romantic. It's symbolic. Unfortunately, it's also starting to put an unacceptable strain on the bridge, and so Parisian officials are launching a campaign that seeks to replace love locks with a fleeting 21st century alternative: the selfie.

Moving ‘Lovers Shirts’ Project Explores the Bittersweet Memories of Love Lost

We’ve all had a relationship that just ended, either on a good note or bad note, leaving us with a longing, empty feeling. To our detriment, it's a feeling that often has us latching onto every last memory and connection to that relationship that is left to us.

I knew the first minute I saw Jennifer that she was the one. Jen was beautiful and the kind of person that everyone wants in their life: she listened, and when you talked with her you felt like you were the only person who mattered. 

A few months later I finally worked up the courage to ask Jen out, telling her, "I have a crush on you." At the time Jen was living in New York and I was in Cleveland. We talked on the phone for hours and wanted to know everything about each other; after 6 months of long distance dating I moved to New York.

Photog Accidentally Captures Proposal While Snapping Pictures of a Sunrise

Can you believe the proposal photo above wasn't planned? In fact, the photographer wasn't even aware of what was going on. It was snapped this past Sunday by 20-year-old Sydney University student Michael Keane, who visited Sydney's Bondi Beach early in the morning to capture photographs of the sunrise. After returning home to post-process the images, Keane zoomed into his photos and was surprised to find that he had accidentally captured a very romantic moment happening way in the horizon.

It might sound strange to use the verb "Love" in the title of a rant. But here goes.

I love photography.

Why am I telling you this? Isn't it self-obvious? Don't we all love photography? The answer is no. There is a percentage of photographers who hate photography. They do not appreciate photography. They do not consume photography. They don't look at photo books or photo magazines. They hate the guy with the iPhone taking Instagram shots.
