I knew I would love Hallie & Tyler’s lifestyle engagement session as soon as I walked into their house. They have renovated the whole house themselves, planted an amazing vegetable garden in their backyard and decorated each room with a mix of vintage and new eclectic pieces that seem to fit together perfectly . Their house is a reflection of their relationship. A mix of creative & clean. Classy & simple, but detail oriented. Even the books in the shelves fit in with the style and feel of the home.
Their session was very relaxed. We started with some shots of them drinking tea. They have quite an extensive tea collection from around the world and drink a cup or two each day. I felt silly for knowing very little (read: absolutely nothing) about tea! However, my husband brought home a really cool looking tea gourd and straw from his trip to Argentina last week and I immediately thought of Hallie & Tyler. Maybe tea drinking is in my future?!
After hanging out with their cats for a bit (and a very awkward moment when I started meowing while they were quietly staring into each others eyes, LOL) we finished the session outdoors in their garden. Tyler picked some spinach and gave it to me to take home. I made a spinach chicken quesadilla for myself, while my oldest daughter preferred to dip her leaves into some ranch. We also took a few tomato plants, that are now planted in my garden at home!
It was a very memorable session for me. Absolutely perfect and relaxed and fun. Just how I want all sessions to go. I hope these photos show the love and genuine respect Hallie & Tyler have for each other.
I wish them a lifetime of happiness! 🙂
