We celebrate this Valentine’s Day by highlighting our photographers’ outstanding work about Love.
Whether in friendships, motherhood, or around us. Love takes different forms and can find us in the least expected ways.
Maria and Mariza became friends during my photoshoot. They really loved each other’s energy! Sometimes love can be found in friendships. Love is all around us and these girls found it!
I love taking pictures of people, people being people naturally, effortlessly and candidly. I believe some pictures speak for themselves and express by shouting a feeling.
This image shows the love for nature and the importance of understanding how necessary it is to preserve it. It has been taken in the spanish Pyrenées mountains during a summer climbing trip with a couple of friends who I share this love with.
One kiss is all it takes
Or so goes Dua Lipa’s song… What we know is that people say a kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
Paris… lovers city.
You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt. Sing like there’s nobody listening. And live like it’s heaven on earth.Bettina Humm
Love is diverse
The more we grow, the more we understand there is no gender norm for love, there is more than one way to love and different romantic relationships exist. At the end of the day, love is love.
When we are kids, we are born into our home. At that moment we do not have a choice about where we want to live. But at some point, we do, and we can call that place our “home”. Defining what home really means is complicated. Home is way more than a location. It is about a feeling of belonging: a collective feeling which describes that place we have been looking for a lifetime. A place of determination A place of finding identity A place of security …Cynthia Luehr

Oh, to be young and in love
One day we are in the honeymoon phase, and the next, healing through a breakup until we are ready to love again. Love must be fed and nurtured, constantly renewed.

Love is not sharing life with someone you live with. It’s sharing life with someone you cannot live without.

As a wedding photographer shooting love is my focus. I really enjoy capturing this beautiful moments forever.
Through thick and thin
They say we accept the love we think we deserve. Sometimes, that love stands the test of time.
After 50 years of marriage, through the good times and the bad, still being capable to see the beauty of each other and have fun together. That is what love is for me.
Going for a walk in Venice’s little historical streets. Together under one umbrella.
Taken in Ukraine just before the war. The couple is Sonya and Alekseï. Their home was destroyed. Being able to love in the war time was something beautiful to me. Maybe love was a way to preserve a part of humanity.
To remember those who we love and are not with us anymore.
Love makes us think in new and unexpected ways. Take a look at these creative photography projects about Love by our talented Cherrydeck members.
The romance of a socially distanced world
Love through fashion and hairstyle
“We woke up at 5 am to go to the sunrise and get the best light, I am very proud of the result.”
I am the love of my life
“Once upon a time I would have thought of the phrase “I am the love of my life” as a very selfish and somewhat silly concept, like those phrases I used to read on tumblr when I was 12 years old. However, when I think of all those times when I put myself on the back burner to meet another person’s desires I want to slap myself in the face, and, at the same time, give myself a caress. How frustrating is that cage where “compromise” actually means “sacrifice”. How trivial it seems, but how wonderful, when everything comes easy. By concentrating on the desires of others, I have gradually cut off a little piece of myself, until I have deconstructed myself. Who is Sofia? What does she want in her life? When there is something left of you that others have unwrapped a little at a time, leaving you full of holes and gaps, you can’t offer much, except availability. The one with me is the greatest love story of my life. Without me, the complete me, there is no story.”
” “RAKEEM” is a photo book project which portrays a male character who experiences life and reacts with various intense emotions to different circumstances and settings. It’s a story about losing someone you loved with all your heart. It is not merely a fashion-based project which aims at aesthetics. It is an attempt to weave in socially relevant subjects like emotional tension, pressure, faith, hope, love, and even God – timelessly. “
We hope you enjoyed these pictures about Love as much as we did. The Cherrydeck Team wishes you a Happy Valentine’s Day!
