When in-home engagement sessions started popping up all over the internet, we definitely took an interest in them. The couple looked so intimate, so cozy and so “them.” It wasn’t until we met Courtney & Caleb that we felt an in-home session would fit their personalities better than a regular outdoor session. Although we can’t take credit for the initial idea because it was Courtney that brought it up, we can say that we nearly jumped up and down when we got the email requesting this type of session. No location in Hampton Roads would fit their style and their personalities more than Courtney’s cozy little apartment in downtown Norfolk.
Courtney & Caleb both will tell you that they owe meeting one another due to their love of coffee. While Courtney was working at a local favorite coffee shop, Cafe Moka, Caleb would come in and try to talk to her. After some time, Caleb realized that if he wanted to talk to her more often, he would have to get a job there. And so he did. Courtney & Caleb have the sweetest relationship and anyone who knows them knows that they are, without a doubt, a perfect match. They bring out the best in one another and you can see from the photos below how natural they are, just being themselves with one another. Take a look at some of our favorite photos from their cozy, in-home session.
We need more sessions with record players and coffee because this morning was one of our favorites.
Courtney & Caleb both are avid readers (as you may be able to tell from their adorable save-the-dates) and so it was only natural for them to do what they would usually do on Saturday morning and pick up a book and read with one another.
Next, we asked them if they ever slow dance in their living room, to which they both said happened quite often. And boy, we are glad we asked. These two are precious!
I mean, seriously guys?? *SWOON*
After taking a few photos on the fire escape, we jumped in our cars for a short trip over to the Freemason area of Norfolk to take just a few outdoor photos before the end of the session.
