We’ve got to say, we’re really loving this trend of in-home sessions lately. Something about coming into someone’s home and letting our couples just be themselves to start of the session really allows us all to get to know one another and for them to get comfortable in front of the camera in a way that is natural. And at this point, we’re pretty confident that every single apartment in downtown Richmond is ready-for-a-photoshoot cute. I mean, look at Alli & Connor’s apartment! It’s the perfect size for them and it has so much natural light coming in the tall windows that we were basically ready to move in and call it our own. Plus, their corner spot off of E Broad & N 19th gives them the perfect little view down E Broad St. where you can actually see the hospital where Conor works in the distance. We loved photographing them as they enjoyed coffee, cuddled on their couch and danced in their living room.
After some time in their adorable apartment, we ventured just outside their building to capture some of the beauty that around their neighborhood. We weren’t disappointed by the black wrought iron that adorned the houses along their street, as well as the blooming dogwood trees. We ended the session at Jefferson Park; a park that Alli & Connor frequent with their dog that has the perfect sunset view of downtown Richmond. Although it was overcast and we didn’t get to catch the beautiful sunset, we were still taken by the view of the city that we’ve never seen before.
Alli & Connor are getting married this fall at Maymont Park here in Richmond, VA and we can’t wait to return for their wedding!
After some time inside their apartment, we decided to wander around their neighborhood a bit before ending the session at Jefferson Park.
After walking along their street, we decided to walk over to Jefferson Park to end the session with an overlook of the city that we haven’t seen before. We’ve been to Libby Hill Park a handful of times, but never to this park. We took the its-a-good-thing-I-skipped-my-workout way and climbed 18 flights of stairs (might be an exaggeration) to get to this overlook. It was worth it.
