Y’all! I am so excited to share with you one of my favorite engagement sessions yet. Russell and Dave are two of the kindest, most down-to-earth couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with. We spent just as much time laughing and bonding as we did shooting. These were taken late in October last year just as the colors were starting to really shift. I climbed rocks to get great angles and they braved fields possibly full of snakes (Dave and I were both concerned) to create some serious magic.
Russell and Dave describe themselves as opposites who bonded over their shared love of music. Russell is outgoing and free-spirited and Dave is the more reserved and introspective. They met early in 2015 and were engaged by the end of the year. Russell proposed to Dave during a visit to NYC in late December. They are enjoying a long engagement as Dave finishes his doctorate in clinical psychology. Russell works in the pharmacy at a children’s hospital. These two share everything together and have established a tiny family with their dog baby Suzie Q (a Chihuahua Miniature Pinscher who makes several appearances below). In keeping with the woodsy vibe for their eventual barn wedding, Russell and Dave wanted their engagement photos to celebrate both their love for each other and for the fall season. Although they live in Louisville, Russell and Dave traveled to meet me locally in Bowling Green, Kentucky after being referred to me by a mutual friend as a candid-driven, LGBT-friendly photographer.
I feel so honored that you chose me, Russell and Dave! Best of luck in the many adventures around the corner!
I also have to thank one of our favorite wedding blogs, Catalyst Wedding Co., for featuring their session here!
