{ tara + matt // at home anniversary photos }

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

I was so overjoyed when Tara contacted me about setting up a session for their first anniversary. She envisioned relaxed, slice-of-life type photos at home, which are always some of my most very favorite types of photos to take. Their home is located in one of the busiest sections of LA, but is seriously like a magic little oasis in the midst of it all – I think my breath stopped when the front gate swung open and I saw the gorgeous home & garden we’d be shooting in that afternoon. They had cupcakes and champagne, they cuddled on the sofa, they giggled with their sweet {and most photogenic!} yorkie, they reminisced about their wedding and the past year, and I got to document it. That’s a wonderful afternoon :)

At-home engagement sessions are definitely one of my most favorite kinds – you are in an environment that is at once relaxed, calm, quiet, and filled by dear memories. Add in a blooming garden, a hammock, an ocean view, and a couple furry friends and you have the dreamiest engagement photos like the ones you see below. Jackie and Keith have the most beautiful home, and I’m so so glad to they chose to do their engagement photos there!

P.S. More favorite things – Jackie’s sweet updo, the wall of her art creations, and the fact that she chose to go barefoot for the session… love!

There are a lot of beautiful things I saw during the afternoon I spent with Tori & Kate in and around their home. A cozy living room with bright cheery posters. A sun-drenched kitchen. Colorful berries atop homemade vegan pancakes. Matching aprons. A wall of hearts. Sweet terriers and cuddly cats.

But the most beautiful thing? By far?

Was love.

Because this is love you see in these photos. That giddy giggly kind of love. That connected souls kind of love. That feels-like-home, best-friend, you-really-really-get-me kind of love.

I’m counting all my lucky stars that Tori’s sister found me online through Green Wedding Shoes and gifted this session to Tori & Kate. Because of her I was able to meet two amazing ladies and capture a glimmer of their lives together :) These kinds of homey sessions are still always my favorites and this one is no exception… it makes my heart so so happy.
