In-Home Couple Session By Louisville Kentucky Wedding & Engagement Photographer Sarah Katherine Davis Photography

It's always exciting to get to take photos of other wedding photographers— especially when they are in-home sessions! There are so many things I love about taking photos at home that it's hard to know where to start, but I'm going to give it a try! In-home sessions allow couples to relax and feel comfortable in a way that isn't always possible out and about— they can choose their own music, they know that they don't have an audience, and if they want to take a coffee break in the middle they totally can. I also love being able to capture an intimate, casual moment in time. Spaces change and people move, but this specific stage in their lives is forever documented in a way that reflects their daily life. 

Trent and Kendra were so much fun to photograph— they are wonderful photographers themselves (check out their work!) and it was really special getting to be in their space. There were so many sweet moments during their photos— Trent singing along to Johnny Cash, Kendra measuring their coffee so precisely, and the two of them being willing to be both silly and serious with me. If you're looking for more in-home sessions Marcos & Aica's Brooklyn home is so sweet and you'll love it. 

Abby & Schyler // Anniversary Couple's Session // Blue Hour Swim in Deam Lake

I've been in the mood to shoot during blue hour lately. There is just something about that time right after sunset that allows for play in so many ways— switching up shutter speeds and accessing a whole different color palette. For this session, we got the most gorgeous golden hour complete with a light rainstorm, a small rainbow, and a stunning sunset— as well as an interesting blue hour as well. 

Abby and Schyler have been together as long as I can remember. I first photographed them dancing at my senior prom. Over the years, I've loved watching their big milestones online— including seven years of marriage and two sweet children. They've had so many amazing big moments together and have supported each other through some really hard times too. Despite all the years, as they played together and goofed off during our session they were giving off some serious newlywed vibes. It's obvious that they are just as in love now as they were ten years ago. 

Abby made me cry, when the morning after the session she wrote me, "Thanks again so much for last night. For us, it was more than just a photo session. It was nice to be a little more carefree and focus on each other. We got to reconnect in a way and play around like we were young again thanks to you. You are so amazing at what you do and you made us feel super comfortable all while having fun. Thank you so much."

I love anniversary sessions so much, in case you do too check out Chris & Cassie's Chicago conservatory session or Alex & Collin's in-home session.

Aica & Marcos // Brooklyn In-Home Session // New York Couples Photographer

I've been looking forward to my trip to New York for about a million reasons, but getting to photograph Aica and Marcos was really high up on my list. They are such a genuine and fun couple — I loved getting to hear about their travels, their art, and getting the inside scoop of their neighborhood in Brooklyn. They met in Louisville (where they're both from) when Marcos was visiting from NYC. From Aica, "After he left to go back to NYC I thought I would never see him again. A week later he came to Louisville and did freelance from Kentucky for a month and then I eventually moved to New York."

They took their first road trip together after knowing each other for a week (it was an ELEVEN HOUR drive to Philly) which I feel like is a perfect way to really get to know someone quickly....and it also sounds like the plot of an adorable indie flick. "I liked his adventurous spirit and he liked that I was down for whatever," Aica said about their spontaneous trip together. Marcos shared more about their explorations over the past six years, "We've been to Peru, island hopping in Greece as well as the Philippines, lived in Barcelona for a month, drove around the rest of Spain and the south of France, hiked the Pyrenees, Germany, Puerto Rico, Amsterdam, Mexico, Canada, and Columbia. We lived in Portland, Oregon for a year (drove across the country for a month camping everywhere to get there and we also drove across again to move back.) We plan on settling in New Mexico one day because we both love it."

We went out for beers after the session and shared stories from Peru— turns out the rug in the living room is from the Cuszo region and it was quite the struggle to get it home. Also that gorgeous painting over their bed? Marcos painted it. Oh yeah, as if they aren't already all of our couple goals, Aica is an art director at Steve Madden and Marcos is an art director for Speedo. Double art directors. I don't think it gets better than that. Okay, enough from me, here are some images!

Also if you're looking for more in-home sessions Alex & Collin's is one of my favorites and I've also been sharing a ton over on Instagram lately!
