Joann Randles | Award Winning Wedding Photographer
A look held between partners, a child’s adoring gaze, a hug from a stranger.
The definition of love spans a range of feelings and attitudes encompassing emotion and attraction. It is used to describe an act of kindness or compassion, friendship and desire.
These 10 photographs, the winning entries in the eHarmony Love Captured contest, give a glimpse of love in all its different forms.
The competition was launched to celebrate the relationship site’s five-year anniversary, and offered a £5,000 prize to the photo that best encapsulates love.
The entries were judged by a panel of four, including relationship experts and renowned photographers.
They selected the image We’ve Walked A Long Way Together, by Lee Jeffries as the winning photograph.
He said: ‘As a photographer…you just know when you’ve captured something special. I’m inspired by people. With my camera I delve into the emotion found on the street. Happiness, sadness, loneliness, love – it’s all out there. The trick is trying to capture that. So far, I have been very lucky. It’s a human photograph. It portrays genuine human emotion.’
