Meeting Cody and Haylee came about different than how I typically meet my couples. The two of them entered a drawing at La Gala in Bowling Green, KY for an engagement session with me! (If you are thinking, “What is a Nashville Wedding Photographer doing in Bowling Green, KY?” it is because of some awesome friends I’ve made that live in KY. You can check out their wedding here!) After Haylee reached out to me and I explained the importance of having an Authentic Engagement Session, we decided it would be best to have a home engagement session.
Why the Home Engagement Session
There are many types of couples. Some couples are adventurous, others love to go out on dates. For Haylee and Cody, they are about intimacy and spending time outside at their house together. One of the things I cover in my Authentic Engagement Session Guide is to base your session around an activity you enjoy together. In doing so, you’ll find that you end up at the right location and in an environment you are familiar with.
After arriving at Cody and Haylee’s house, we hit it off immediately. In fact, when I was pulling in their driveway, I noticed the two of them were flirting as Cody was holding Haylee tight. That’s a good sign for an intimate session!
When I walked up to the amazing couple, I noticed at the front of their door is a wood board that reads, “Welcome.” That’s just how the two of them made me feel! As we were shooting, they twirled each other, set up a small blanket under a small grove of trees and put yellow honeysuckles in each others hair. They really made the most of their home during this engagement session.
I’ll stop my blabbering now, because you just need to see how awesome of a couple they are! Just check out these amazing photos!
Way to stay authentic you two! Congratulations!
