Jess and Chris wanted to have an in home engagement session and we loved this idea! I love documenting people in the places they love the most, and in their own home is extra special. We shot in their condo as well as around the outside of their condo to utilize as many different backgrounds as possible! The inside of their condo is full of warm neutral goodness which is ideal for photographing indoors. Things you traditionally want to avoid with indoor photos would love bright and bold colored walls as they can create colorcast. Jess and Chris fit right into their home, I love how comfortable these images feel. Even to strangers viewing these images, they feel intimate and warm. This is thanks to their genuine smiles, warm color scheme, and comfortable clothing choices!
Shooting in home creates posing options that aren’t available for outdoor sessions, like the fun poses on their couch! And most importantly, in home sessions allow for your fur babies to be present. Even cats are often willing to be in photos when they’re done in your home! This in home engagement session contains some of my favorite indoor photos I’ve ever taken!
We shot a few sweet images in their kitchen, the siting on the counter top pose is a classic and always turns out cute. After the living room and kitchen portions, we then went out to their porch for some cheers and beers! Including a beverage of your choice is a fun and simple prop to bring into the session. For engagements, an alcoholic beverage cheers just makes so much sense!
Jess and Chris are lucky to live in an area where right outside of their condo they have some great photo opportunities! The city streets are a big aesthetic. Small city roadways and tons of unique greenery gave us so many spots to shoot!
