Weekends Are for Lovers is a project by our dear friend, Hannah.  She approached us a few months back, when she was in the process of rebranding her photography website.  Weekends Are for Lovers is a relaxed approach to lifestyle photography and we couldn’t be more excited to help her launch her new site.


When she came to us about taking some photos in our home, we were a bit hesitant.  We’ve been in our space for a little over year and although this place feels like the most true definition of home we have ever experienced, it can be a little scary to let someone in to your most intimate space.  Our home is ever-changing…moving things from room to room, finding new knick-knacks and, creating the perfect cozy corner to cuddle up in.


After seeing these photos, we couldn’t help but think how very telling these shots are…us on a weekend, in our very first home together, during our first year of marriage.  We immediately thought of how we’ve always been fascinated by going through our parents’ old photo albums; what filled their bookshelves, their coffee tables…Maybe years from now, our nephews or possibly even our own children, will look back at these photographs, the same way we did.  They will see what little treasures we’ve kept close and the little moments that mean so much.

Weekends have always been our favorite.  They are an opportunity to do everything and nothing at the same time.  It’s getting all the little things accomplished at your own pace.  It’s spending some extra time in bed together.  It’s heading out for a brunch date.  It’s feeling rejuvenated.  It’s spending two days falling in love all over again.  We couldnt be more grateful for this little home of ours, a special place we can truly call our own.

Head over to Hannah’s blog, to check out a fun Q+A we did with her.

    1. Thank you! It was a piece from our wedding, that we used as part of the decor. It’s one of our favorites!

    1. Thank you so much! We are still moving some things around it, but we love this little space of ours. 🙂


    1. Thank you! That’s one of our favorite pieces. We found it on ebay a while back, while planning our wedding. Etsy and ebay have so many great ones! xo

  1. Hey lady! I am literally obsessed with your leather hat! Did you get that from Free People or the Henschel company itself? No one can pull off those hats like you can! So gorgeous!
