Photographer captures the true essence of a blind date

Having a first date can be very stressful

  • choosing the right outfit,
  • rehearsing the conversations you want to have,
  • preparing yourself for a first kiss, of course, as long as the chemistry between the two is given at first glance, or
  • thinking of all things that could go wrong.

However, everything multiplies when it comes to a blind date. Everything that could happen between a couple that will see each other for the first time remains between them, but it was not for these two, nor for the photographer Lindsey McCaffry since she was in charge of gathering some strangers and capturing the true essence of a date blindly with a series of photos.

Karmon and Daniel had never met and never met either

Lindsey McCaffry published an open call for single men and women who would like to be photographed on a blind date and chose the candidates after several weeks. Daniel, 27, and Karmon, 32, were the first to participate in this unique project. Before the photo shoot, they had never seen each other and didn’t know anything about each other, only that they would be photographed posing on a motorcycle and in an open-air stream.

Before arriving at the scene, Lindsey asked them to cover their eyes, and once there, she placed them face to face. Just as the mask was removed, the sparks flew between them. The chemistry was undeniable.

No one could say that they don’t know each other

The photos show tension and genuine first reaction to seeing each other, instant connection, passionate hugs and kisses. According to Lindsey, no one would be able to say that these two people were complete strangers.
