"Goddess and the Champion"

"During the photo shoot I had noticed this amazing look he gave her. If you've never seen people in love, this was them. I asked him if he would join her for some pictures and I'm telling you, everything lit up. This pose seemed so natural and exploded with emotion to me. "
"Goddess and the Champion is a powerful expression of love. A powerful and accomplished Champion chooses what he knows he should not. The anguish this mortal feels from loving a Goddess is almost audible from his expression but much more sufferable than the pain he feels without her. She comes to him, receives him under a canopy of brilliant love against the darkening skies here at this isolated alter. She gives it all for him, without shame, within the open temple walls which read;
“Built with mortal hands for the love of a Goddess”
