Your home is your sanctuary. A perfect combination of your experiences and tastes, it’s also where you tend to your relationship on a daily basis. You learn all of the little nuances about each other that come with living together. You figure out who doesn’t mind peeling vegetables and who is in charge of taking the dog out early in the morning. A large part of marriage is choosing to go through a daily routine with another person. It’s those small gestures of love that make your relationship especially unique, so why not capture those everyday moments?
In-home engagement sessions are a great alternative to a more traditional engagement shoot. You get to know your photographer and get your first taste of being in front of the camera, all in the comfort of your own home.
Incorporating your everyday activities into the session will help you feel more at ease in front of the camera. Remember to keep it casual. There’s no need to go out and buy new decor to zhush up your home. Wear your cozy clothes, gather your pets together, and get comfortable.
Whether you drink coffee together every morning before work, or perhaps you gather on the porch for an afternoon beer, embrace the ordinary moments and take advantage of the space where you show that love for each other every day, in its most genuine form.
