“Real intimacy is a sacred experience. It never exposes its secret trust and belonging to the voyeuristic eye of a neon culture. Real intimacy is of the soul, and the soul is reserved.” ― John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

Intimacy cannot be described in words. It can only be felt. The holding of hands, the whispering of sweet vows, the making of promises, each of these things might sound like tiny, little gestures, but they all go a long way in keeping a couple together.

Natalia Mindru, a photographer from Bucharest, has been documenting lovers in their paradises across the world. She has travelled through France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Hungary, UK, Netherlands, Portugal, in search of couples who would agree to get clicked, and luckily, she has found quite a few of them. Her series titled, Urban Love Stories, captures the intimate moments of couples and the photos are absolutely stunning.

Check out these wonderful photos that capture every raw emotion between these loving couples.

These photos capturing love and passion in all their rawness are beyond beautiful.
