Dozens of people responded to the Craigslist ad I put up giving away a shelving unit, but Regina and Kwame were the first ones to show up.
"I know it's Craigslist, which makes everyone wary, especially since you're now standing in my apartment, but... would you ever want to do an anniversary photo shoot with me? I have a website you can check out so I can prove I'm not creepy!" They laughed and said yes, after being assured I would not try to get them in a compromising position.
We met in the Meatpacking in Manhattan a few months later, around their anniversary, and just as the sun was setting. I got shots both before and after, as the light went from golden to dark.
Thanks for trusting me, Kwame and Regina, and happy first anniversary.
