Dalton and Payton's Intimate Outdoor Session by Meredith Washburn

I think some of my favorite photo sessions are intimate in-home or outdoor couple sessions. I love that couples open up and allow me into their intimate space to capture moments that feel so honest and raw; warming to the soul. Nature can make for really beautiful images, but the photos that make me feel the most are the ones that make my mind wander somewhere a little deeper into a love, friendship, family, or emotion. Dalton and Payton are two of my very favorite people to photograph as they are so comfortable together. Everything about their love is contagious. I hope you enjoy their intimate session as much as I enjoyed taking them:

Adam and Summer by Meredith Washburn

Earlier this summer, Adam and Summer spent the evening hanging out with me and my husband, Ben. If you don't know Adam and Summer, you probably should! They are seriously two of the world's sweetest and kindest humans. Also, they just so happen to be married, which kinda rocks.

Anyway, we spent the evening playing around in boho clothing and flower crowns (Adam's very favorite style...haha, just kidding).  Summer can throw on literally anything and look amazing. Also, she has killer hair...just throwing it out there. Such a fun night playing around with outfits/headpieces/lighting/etc. I absolutely love photographing other photographers. Summer is a talented photographer, so it was super exciting for her to be on the other side of the camera for a change and see her dominate her modeling skills. Am I right? Thanks to Adam for continually putting up with all of my off the wall ideas during shoots. You're a brave man :)

More images with bohemian-styled clothing + flower crown magic by the talented Splendor of Eden coming soon.
