"We have been completely floored by the response Capturing Love has received, including expressions of excitement, inspiration, and-even-tears of appreciation and empathy," say the authors. "We had hoped that Capturing Love would resonate with the photographers for whom we created it, but we are equally thrilled to know that engaged couples and other aficionados of authentic love are equally smitten by this moving collection of loving couples."
