The Joker and Harley Quinn // Gotham City Session // Melbourne Florida Photographer

The Joker and Harley Quinn are an infamous couple in the DC Comics world, two villains that are always after Batman. 

The King and Queen of Crime, as they are known to the world, have become more and more of a widely recognized pair of lovers, “relationship goals” as some people like to call them. With the release of Suicide Squad and the loving tendencies between the two, the Joker and Harley are considered the perfect couple.

Thank you so much to Erin Loffler of Salon Beautiful for doing the hair and makeup, Cringe of Despair for dying his hair and acting as The Joker, and to Ashlee Lillie for being an amazing Harley Quinn.

Showing the true nature of the relationship between The Joker and Harley is extremely important as they are not a loving and romantic couple, but they share a controlled and violent relationship.

They are not goals, they are not cute. This isn’t love.

If you are in an abusive relationship or need to seek help, please contact The National Domestic Abuse Hotline. It’ll be okay, I promise.
