Nicole & Alex are my kind of folks. When we were first discussing plans for their engagement session, they offhandedly mentioned their love of trips to Target together and a plan started forming for me. We eventually decided on a lifestyle session at home and then a trip to Target to finish their session. I was absolutely in! 

Lifestyle Engagement Session at Home

Nicole, Alex, and their cat welcomed me to their living space in Atlanta. We began in their favorite spots of their home, including a space showing off their plethora of plants. I seriously love how much they love their plants! Their cat joined us while we looked at their Christmas decor, and then Alex and Nicole enjoyed a cup of coffee in their favorite mugs. Everything just felt so cozy and natural with them. They’re so cute together! While we were together, I realized how close they live to my old middle school. And then… we figured out Nicole and I went to the same high school just a few years apart! So we had a bit of bonding over some ridiculous {in the best way} mutual teachers. I rarely get the chance to bond with someone over those types of things, so I was just so thrilled!

Engagement Photos in Target

After we wrapped up portraits at home, it was time for a trip to Target! Nicole and Alex spend time walking the aisles together and browsing on a regular basis, so it made perfect sense to capture some of their engagement photos here. I was here for it, let me tell you! I literally just followed them around as they did their thing and captured how cute they are together in real life. Since it was around Christmas, we spent some time poking through the decor. They found a super little tree skirt to take home and add to their tiny tree there.

I can’t wait to see these two in December. We’re working on building out a super fun elopement day for them in the winter. Although they’re officially married, this day will be full of everything they love – and a ceremony. If you saw my Asheville walking elopement post, then you know how into this idea I am! I seriously can’t wait until then, Nicole and Alex.
