When Kacie approached me about taking some photos for she and her boyfriend Josh, we initially planned to do a "nature/outdoors" shoot. However, something in me said, "It's time to change it up and do something different."
Let me just say...I LOVE coffee. Living in Ethiopia for a year will do it to you. It's such an integral part of the Ethiopian culture, and I'm pretty sure I now have a coffee "problem" as a result. The idea of a coffee shop kept coming back to me, so I asked Kacie what she thought about a coffee shop shoot, and she was all about it! How perfect is it that she and Josh actually met in a coffee shop?!
I knew I wanted a super cozy, eclectic, and warm space for the shoot, so I approached Trade & Lore Coffee in Noda about utilizing their space for the shoot. They were SUPER gracious and kind, agreeing to let me use their cafe. A huge plus...the lattes were delicious and really pretty, so go check them out in Charlotte (Noda) or Downtown Asheville, NC!
Kacie and Josh met us at the cafe and it was immediately apparent that these two were super sweet and absolutely in love. It always takes a minute for couples to warm up to the camera or actually forget that you're there, but once they did...it was magic.
Lattes, laughter, cozy couches, and young love...what more could you ask for? It's all here.
Please enjoy Josh and Kacie's coffee shop session.
