Historic Home Engagement Session – Jacie + Austin

Okay, listen to me. You will NEVER see another in-home session as cute as this and you will also never catch me in the snow again. Cherish this historic home engagement session as if it is your last. Frankly, it might be. I don’t know how to freaking top it.

I’ve said it before but snow engagement sessions are so cute in theory. Generally it’s like 15 degrees, everyone’s nose is cold and you can’t even wear cute clothes because all cute clothes are not necessarily warm clothes.

Jacie & I went back and forth about rescheduling, but by the time we were out the door the weather was fine. Nothing was sticking. 45 minutes later was a totally different story but it was also reasonably warm and amazing? I don’t know. I’m just telling you the planets freaking ALIGNED for this magic engagement session.

This historic home belongs to Austin’s parents and even has an instagram you can follow! All of the decor is freaking adorable and when I walked in I refused to believe that anyone even lived there.

Jacie & Austin’s love is one where they tease each other and arent’ afraid to have fun and that’s my favorite thing to photograph. They work in wildly different careers where Jacie is working for a juvenile detention center and Austin works a really physical job as a freaking welder. It’s amazing seeing how the two of them play off each other and how easy and adorable they make love look.

Thanks for inviting me into (and out of) such a beautiful freaking home! I love when people can truly make their engagement session unique and special to them.

Choosing Tay to photograph our wedding was one of the easiest and best decisions we made. Both my husband and I are awkward and uncomfortable with being the center of attention and photographed, obviously a bad position to be in on your wedding day. However, Tay made something typically uncomfortable for us into something fun and easy! The photographs are beautiful and captured a lot of special moments as well as the energy of our dance floor at our reception!!

Tay is simply the best! Her work is STUNNING, and we're so lucky to have found her. We had a blast during our engagement shoot -- Tay instantly makes you feel so comfortable, as if you've known her for years. Our family and friends loved the photos as much as we did. It was important to us that we find an experienced photographer who knows how to photograph people of color and is LGBTQ-friendly. Tay absolutely fits the bill. We're so excited to work with her again at our wedding in April. Also, brides-and-grooms-to-be: Check out her blog for some amazing tips! It has become a touchstone guiding us through this crazy process.

I’m so glad I trusted Tayanna with my wedding day! She not only exceeded my expectations for what I thought our wedding photos could look like, but she had a beautiful sneak peek for me that night! The sneak peek was enough to make me sob. Then the rest of the photos came only 9 days later! I could go on forever. If you need a photographer that’s fun, energetic and on her game sooooo hard, you need Tayanna Harris. She’s killer!!!
