    The daily decision of marriage is a beautiful, sacrificial relationship between two people, where separate identities blend and coexist.  A person's spouse is often one of the only individual with whom he or she can truly drop the self-constructed façade created for approval.    Throughout the course of this project I spent time with various unique couples, in which I heard stories of their marriages and lives. While visiting with them in their own homes I created portrait photographs to demonstrate them in a vulnerable moment, turning away from the idealized pose manufactured when photographed.   While spending time with the couples, I became more and more intrigued by the objects and spaces in the homes: the decoration and domesticity created by the blend of two unique people.  Usually the only images of marriage that we see are the idealized, romanticized photographs of the engagement and wedding. Therefore, the images of the domestic interiors are created to display the essence of who a couple really is.  The photographs in this series attempt to extend to the viewer the true identities of the subjects through the use of environmental portraits of the depicted couples, and photographs of their interior living spaces.
