You guys…I think I’ve found a new love and I’m obsessed. It’s doing an In Home couples session. They say home is where the heart is, so what better of a spot to photograph a pair in love than in a setting that makes them feel the most comfortable. Instead of just going to a place that doesn’t necessarily have any significance, how about a session where you are surrounded by the things you treasure and value?
I recently had a chance to do one of these at-home intimate sessions for some engaged friends of mine – the ever handsome duo – Nick + Danée. This adorable pair was brought together from across the country (her in Cali, him in Ohio) via the amazing community better known as Instagram. Now they are running both a thriving wedding photography business + coffee roasting company, while planning for their nuptials next year. It was so much fun getting to photograph them doing some of their day to day things – brewing a fresh cup of coffee, snuggling on the couch (with their handsome kitty – Owen James), we even brought in a little youthful kid play in their session with some bed jumping (which was funny with watch with 2 leggy peeps do with a shorter ceiling. Haha). Things even got a little intimate there during their session, and I loved it. I loved getting to be almost like a fly on the wall getting to experience a day in the life of Nick + Danée. Below are some (okay, a lot) of my favorites from their session. Enjoy!
