Shaun and Jameese Cox are head over heels in love.

Although they met years ago at a birthday party, Jameese Cox still remembers the day she laid eyes upon the woman who would one day become her wife.  “I thought man she is beautiful! It was just something about her that had my wheels spinning.”

Shaun and Jameese were the first to participate in Jessica Arnold’s “Portraits of Love” project. The series features committed LGBT couples and their love story. Jessica says, “We are not so different. It is the same love and NO ONE is less.” 

Jessica said, while photographing this couple, she noticed “their complete adoration for each other. They were like newlyweds. Their love is genuine and beautiful.”

The couple is excited about this project and Jameese says, “I hope that by doing this project we could possibly change someone’s feelings toward a gay/lesbian relationship. I want the world to know that I love my wife! We are good people, and we deserve our constitutional rights.”
