Diana and Matt won the giveaway we hosted when we rebranded earlier this spring, and we are so glad that they did! When Diana told us about how they love to go to Logan’s Garden Shop in Raleigh and they wanted to start their balcony garden for this shoot, we were so excited!
Little did we know how fun this day would actually be. We met up with Diana and Matt at Logan’s in the afternoon. We had no idea till we met them that they were celebrating their two year anniversary! We could not have planned this session for a more perfect time of year, and we are so glad that they were able to celebrate with this lifestyle session.
At Logan’s, they picked out some white and purple flowers as well as herbs to plan on their balcony. The eucalyptus and basil were our favorites, for sure! We followed Matt and Diana back to their home, a short drive from Logan’s, to document them planting their new baby plants on the balcony. They had planters ready to go, and a stand to put their plants on when they were finished. As they worked, we couldn’t help but reflect on how much what they were doing mirrors marriage itself. At times, it’s a little bit messy, it’s uncomfortable and dirty. Sometimes it needs to be replanted, fed, watered. At the end of the day, though, it can create something beautiful and fruitful, something that can grow with time.
Diana and Matt’s session ended with the making of some amazing cocktails in their kitchen and a cheeseboard picnic on their living room floor, a place they sit and talk often. We loved watching them interact, love on each other, and celebrate the time they have had together so far. Diana and Matt, thank you so much for having us. We are so glad that you won this giveaway and hope you love these photos as much as we do!
