I’ve been following Swell Dwellings on Twitter for months now. All I knew was that she was a Louisville-area business owner, had a passion for interiors and furniture, and refurbished used furniture, giving it new life. I later found out we had a mutual friend; she had met Robby and Heather at a local art festival. And after that, we learned that we both know AmyHasBangs. (I love Louisville!) But we finally met in person last month.
I love putting a face with a Twitter handle. :)
Kristen and Dave were awesome sauce. I know we had only just met, but I had so much fun with them. And they laugh at my lame jokes. (Let’s face, that doesn’t put a damper on things.) But I was also impressed with how laid back they were. We eased into poses, we changed things up, I stepped back and photographed them just being them. They looked like they belonged together, make sense as a couple. Kristen even told me that she loves where they are in their relationship right now, that she wants to remember how they feel about each other right now. Such sweetness.
I was honored to photograph them, to capture Kristen and Dave when everything feels right. And I can’t wait until our paths cross again… because they will. Or when we start naming off more friends we have in common… because that will probably happen too.
