Documenting a love story in the comfort of the space it occupies on the daily is one of the most beautiful things. That’s exactly why we adore Brandi and Patrick’s at-home engagement session.

Their love story started years ago; catching the eyes of one another in a spot they frequented. “We all know and love Panera Bread, and after a few months of silent stares between a shy employee and an all too frequent high schooler, we finally went on our first date. Through the summer, then college, several jobs, and now a golden doodle — we’ve been together for seven years since,” reminisces the soonlyweds.

Patrick was even able to surprise Brandi with a custom ring from Honey Designs Jewelry, recalling the moment “Eight months go by where Patrick is planning and designing with Chelsea, and Brandi has no clue. She then has a meeting scheduled for an upcoming wedding details review and turns the corner to find Patrick ready to get down on one knee. Got her!”

This all led to an e-session that’s a mix of cute, romantic, and even a little steamy!

Brandi and Patrick snuggled up on the sofa, got playful in the kitchen with baking and bubbles followed by coffee and biscotti, splashed in the shower, and got cozy in the bed.

The relaxed manner of their images are proof that there’s really no place like home!
