Cozy. Intimate. Comfortable. Home. Photographing home sessions is one of my absolute favorite things! If you have been thinking about it for an anniversary or engagement photos with your love- go for it! It doesn’t even have to be in your own home. There is just something about being inside, away from everyone that lets you relax. I took at trip up to Salt Lake City, Utah to work with the A-mazing India Earl. She found these two freakin’ rock stars and we ended up photographing them in my Air BnB. Ssoo get your love and a cute home away from home with some awesome light and snuggle up! (Great excuse for a little vacay if you ask me!) Also, who doesn’t love jumping on the bed + dancing around the living room??  I am super excited to start more travels and destination photography sessions with Orlando, New Hampshire mountains, Portland and I cannot wait to get back to Utah to photograph some more amazing couples and gorgeous weddings.

Speaking of couples, Jill + Pat are livin such an awesome life. They have been traveling all over the world for a few years together now and I am over the moon jealous. They are two of the most genuinely sweet and lovable people I’ve ever met. On top of that, they were so outgoing and completely up for anything! After our home session we went out to the salt falts not too far from the city (be on the look out!) and ran around playing in the sand until the sun went down. What beautiful souls.

PS. Jill has the most incredible fashion taste I’ve ever seen! Follow this girl over on instagram @jilldeconti to see all her amazing adventures and great outlook on life = )
