These intense pics of couples kissing will make you grab your bae right now

If you still think red is the colour of love, you need to see these. Chocolates, roses, candlelit dinners — there are a myriad of ways to profess your love. But we’re old school here, and our favorite’s a classic: a big ol’ kiss right on the lips. We’re talking about a French smooch that puts all of the face’s 34 muscles to work.

Now, if that sounds too intense for you, for New York-based fashion photographer Ben Lamberty, it was just what he was looking for.

It all started in 2013 when he was captivated by a photo he took of a couple kissing. The effect on him prompted him to create an entire series of kissing photos. He had friends get in front of the camera for him — both real-life couples and not (at the time, maybe it led to something more).

“It was interesting to see how the different couples reacted,” Ben said. “It seemed to be more challenging for the ‘real’ couples because it was rather intimate for them than for the friends who kissed ‘just for fun.’ All in all, we all had a blast creating these pictures.”

Before he knew it, his work ended up making it into the December 2013 issue of Zeit Magazine, and the rest was history. We’ve picked out some of our favorites below.
