Have you ever met someone for the first time, and felt like you already knew them? I got that feeling so strongly with Frances and Duff that it totally messed with my mind! I kept having to remind myself that we had only hung out once, because it felt like we were old buds.
We met these guys through my sister’s blog. She connected with Frances because they both have food blogs. My sister found out that Frances lives in Buenos Aires, where Rob and I were hanging out for the month. We got their email address, dropped them a line, and asked if they wanted to go eat some tasty food together.
See, we love food. All food. And anyone who can show us great places to eat in a new city is an instant friend! The bonus with Frances and Duff? They are just downright awesome people. They’re photographers (hey, so are we!), travellers (yep, we like that too), foodies (we love food), and just two cool people living a fun life. We clicked instantly, and as soon as we walked away from our first dinner together Rob and I both knew that we would have to take their portraits before we left.
So one day we hopped on the train, and journeyed out to San Isidro, a absolutely beautiful little suburb of Buenos Aires where these two live. We had no idea what the place would look like, and were just going to go with the flow.
Um, we lucked out. BIG TIME. This has to be one of the most beautiful, relaxed, and enjoyable places we’ve ever shot! Amazing colours, architecture, and just a really chill vibe. After a few weeks in the hustle and bustle of downtown Buenos Aires, it was exactly what we needed.
And the shoot itself was a true joy. We strolled around with these guys and their adorable pup Chomp, and just had fun together. Chatting, laughing, and stopping every few feet to take more photos! We finished off the night with nachos (kinda my favourite thing) and it was perfect.
Frances and Duff, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You made our trip 100X better. We can’t wait until our paths cross again!!
Tons of love,
Lauren (and Rob) :)
