The story behind Lucy Torres’ photo will definitely make you melt
This is definitely the look of love.
Model now Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez has showered Instagram with all the kilig feels a week ahead of Valentine’s Day.
The politiko shared the backstory of this beautiful portrait taken by her now-husband, Ormoc Mayor Richard Gomez.
The young Torres had been crushing on Gomez since she was 12. When they met six years later at an ad shoot, Torres noticed that Gomez had been doing his own photo shoot with his own camera.
Filled with courage, Torres flashed Gomez her charming smile through the lens.
“Years later, in 1998, I married him to live happily ever after, and as a very new bride organizing our things in our home, I saw this photograph in a drawer. He says he has kept it all along, and that I look beautiful,” Torres shared. “And if indeed I do, my love, it is only because I was looking at you.”
I never knew this photo existed until I became his wife. This was taken in 1993, in Lake Caliraya where we shot the second storyboard of our Lux Shampoo TV commercial. Here, I am all of 18 years old, in a long white dress, and totally in love with him (well, since I was 12, actually😂). The latter, of course, no one knew except for my sister Caren who was with me as my chaperone. Anyway. This was Day 2 of our shoot, the morning was hot but the wind was cool, the lake sparkled like a bed of diamonds under the golden sunlight. I remember seeking shade under some tree during the break, and people from the production house and agency were taking behind-the-scenes shots. And somewhere far away from the crowd, there was Richard —— tall, dark, handsome, and perfect, in khaki shorts and a shirt, his professional camera with him. I looked towards him, and seeing that his camera was pointed somewhere in my direction I smiled for him, never mind if I did not know for sure it was I that he saw in those lens. Years later, in 1998, I married him to live happily ever after, and as a very new bride organizing our things in our home, I saw this photograph in a drawer. He says he has kept it all along, and that I look beautiful. And if indeed I do, my love, it is only because I was looking at you.♥️ @richardgomezinstagram
