I’ve been on Instagram for a while. I was one of the early ones who tested the waters, decided it wasn’t for me, then realized maybe it was. I was one of the users that survived the apocalyptic Facebook buyout and the (I hope you’re sitting) addition of video, all with little snark. And I haven’t looked back.
I don’t have a massive following, but I know what a great community Instagram can be. I enjoy the talent that fills my feed and I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a few (excellent) users in real life. While there are dozens of others that I’d like to meet over coffee or a beer or even a brief conversation in passing near a distressed brick building, the few meetings I’ve had have made me pay a bit more attention to each photo I see. With that in mind, I wanted to draw attention to some couples I follow on Instagram. Because good things come in pairs. How many couples? I’m not sure yet, but I have a few in mind and I enjoy each of these photographers as individuals, so I thought it would be interesting to present them as couples while looking at some of their photos side by side.
I’ve never met either half of the couple I’m featuring today, but that hasn’t stopped me from loving the way they see the world. And, for the record, I’d like to someday cross paths with them as they’ve both been nothing by amazing on all forms of social media: Nicholas Pritchett (@nicholasjared) and Laura Pritchett (@bythebrush).
These two have an amazing talent for photography, an eye for the everyday (and the not so everyday), and a very genuine approach to what they do on Instagram. I wanted to feature both of them because, while they both have their own way with a camera (be it with Instagram photos or elsewhere), one of the things I’ve enjoyed most is seeing the parallels that pop up from time to time, with the occasional portraits they take of one another being major highlights. The similarities in their photos are great and the differences are no less enjoyable. Take a look at these few comparisons and head over to Instagram to see all of the amazing photos from these two talented people (who make one talented couple!).
