When we first thought of the “It Couple” series, we wanted it to be a place to share great love stories from inspiring couples. I imagined myself getting to hear the up-close-and-personal romances of interesting people, doing truly interesting things together as couples. I’m not sure there has ever been an installment of the series that has brought that vision to life for me more than this one featuring photographer Kate Zimmerman and professional storyteller Luke Turpin. They’ve traveled the world together making art, adventuring, and working for charities they’re passionate about together. This couple is SO cute, SO romantic, and SO in love it hurts. (Of course it doesn’t hurt that they’re both mega talented, drop dead gorgeous, and incredibly young, too.) Consider yourself warned.
