Alyssa + Luke

I love, love the idea of newlywed and anniversary sessions! Especially ones that include the couple in their own home. It’s such a great way to document those first years together in an intimate/sentimental way.
This session has been on the calendar since last fall but we were just able to make it work, finally, a couple of weeks ago. Just in time too because Alyssa and Luke are moving back to New York. Because of that, this session had extra special meaning. They wanted to document their time in Asheville NC and their first home. Luke is not a fan of portraits but he was a good sport! He kept saying “this is such a girl thing” and “you girls are loving this”. True. (the part about us loving it!) Thanks for rolling with it Luke!

Luke is incredible on the guitar. He’s been playing forever. I’m a sucker for acoustic! (Reminded me of the hours I spent listening to my Dad play when I was a kid.) He humored me!

Then we headed outside for a bit. Super rainy (off and on) and overcast but they were game.
