Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy as a Young Couple by Orlando Suero (1954)

In January 1954, the handsome junior senator from Massachusetts and his glamorous wife moved into a three-story townhouse at 3321 Dent Place in Georgetown. Although they would live here for only five months, the house was their first home after their wedding— the society event of the decade—and a place from which they could begin to prepare for the next step in their lives, one that would take John and Jacqueline Kennedy to the White House.

In May of that year, Orlando Suero, a photographer with the Three Lions Picture Agency on his first major assignment, spent five days with the Kennedys. In more than twenty photo sessions, Suero documented a typical week in the young couple’s life. He enjoyed their full cooperation and the intimate access that would later, as Jacqueline became more anxious about her family’s privacy, be denied to all but a few.

Suero’s photographs capture the idyllic quality of the young couple’s lives during their months in Georgetown. Not yet hounded by the media, John and Jacqueline in these images seem happier and more at ease than they would ever be again (source).
