Tiffany & Co. “True Love in Pictures” Project

There’s nothing better than working on a project about love with the one you love.  A few weeks ago, Garance and I  had the opportunity to collaborate on a project capturing ‘true love in pictures‘ for the Tiffany ‘what makes love true’ campaign.  It was cool to play with instagram while shooting some of our friends (like Andi & Jordan above) in both Paris and New York.


It was also fun thinking about the small, tender gestures that a couple offers to each other– which are really the fuel that keeps a relationship special. I love that Garance makes my oatmeal for me in the morning while I run out to get our coffee.  They’re both just simple small acts but they make life happy.

    Scott this is my favourite picture on the blog. The way you talk about LOVE with Garance is so beautiful. The simple little things! C’est vraiment beau!!!!

    Yes, it’s definitely the little things that count. Every morning my husband leaves my vitamins out for me. He has been doing it for 30 years. Maybe the next series will include a fit-looking older couple? I know of at least one ;-).

    Those make my heart warm and make me happier. Thank you!

    I love the photo. I always say that couples who can laugh together, can get through anything together. But those who can’t manage to laugh, don’t stand a chance of making it. This image captures that beautifully.

    January 12, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Whether this photo was taken in the 90′s or recently despite by the instagram, no one really knows (of course looking at the bicycle). What I know is that love makes it past, today, future and forever.

  18. Coleman

    January 12, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    I have yet to know romance, but the way you captured love with the oatmeal/coffee anecdote really gave me the sense of how lovely it must be…

  19. Coleman

    January 12, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Don’t forget to include images of same-sex love, or will the brand allow that? I certainly hope so!

  20. Paolita@BerryHaute

    January 12, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    I had just read about this project of yours earlier today. I can imagine this was such an experience for the both of you. Can’t wait to see the pictures!

  21. I can’t believe that this was done with instagram! Such a beautiful and genuine photo!

  22. Christina

    January 12, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    It really is the little things that express love the most. You’ve completely captured it here – beautiful!

    I love that in the simplest of unguarded moments love makes you talk unabashedly about your lover with nary a thought to jaded notions of affairs. Delicate and vulnerable, they are all too easily bullied and sullied. Thank you for this Scott…I am enjoying every moment of a wonderful love affair that has all the trapping of a ‘forever’…

    It’s unbelievable how strongly such pictures affect the viewer. You’re looking at the photograph and you instantly smile because you can just feel that love.

    These are beautiful photos. And I’m glad that Tiffany included several mixed race couples. But they are all man + woman couples. Don’t same-sex couple experienc true love too?

    January 13, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    OMG I love this! Will we get to see more photos from this shoot? It IS about the little things – like making oatmeal and getting coffee. And I love that you get to work on a project aimed at capturing that. Tell me you got some shots in a kitchen with one partner making the breakfast and the other cozying up from behind…Look forward to more. You rock!

    OK, I don’t want to be a downer, and I love the photo above and am a fan of your work, but when I clicked and looked at the other photos I thought “infatuation” rather than love. I think this might be because I’m slightly older than this crowd and true love has taken on a different tinge. Tiffany’s was going for a look, I suppose; they also picked a very specific demographic for the love stories posted on the site. That’s marketing, I guess!

    I just wanted to say that I appreciate the biracial couples, but would also really love to see brands reaching out to same sex couples…it’s more money for them, and much needed visibility for us. Whenever possible, please advocate for our inclusion.

    Most of these photos are beautiful – and I think most of them capture the essence of love. However, I’m left with one question: why no same-sex couples?

  99. Mc

    January 14, 2012 at 10:16 am

    Nice photos and I have seen and like the campaign – however, the photos are all of heterosexual couples? Will you change this to include true gay love?

    why are all the ‘true love images’ of young people. my husband is seventy; i am in my sixties…we often hear from our neighbors and friends that we inspire them because they see us and know that love endures…..just a thought…surely you can find older beautiful people to capture on film?
