Casual Home Engagement
They say “home is where the heart is” and since that’s probably where you and your honey spend most of your time together (and your paycheck if you live in NY) then it’s only natural to consider a casual home engagement shoot to celebrate your upcoming wedding! Our photographers find that couples tend to be most comfortable in familiar settings, doing what comes naturally, like reading a book , or even a engaging in a playful basketball game like this adorable couple did. Not only do you avoid the crowds in a public location but you can even stay in your pjs and enjoy a cup of coffee while gaining beautiful candid engagement photos (that’s how a New Yorker multitasks!). I know what you’re thinking, “I live in New York City, my apartment is the size of a sardine can!” Not to worry, whether you live in a Manhattan studio, a Brooklyn loft (or a proverbial sardine can as previously mentioned) our team will be sure to capture you (and your home) perfectly! Give us a call to set up your shoot today!
Thaune and Albert contacted our studio after booking their wedding day at The Mineral Hotel in NJ. They wanted a photography and video package for their big day and an engagement shoot photo session to celebrate their upcoming wedding. The couple lives in New Jersey and knew they wanted casual engagement photos in a park and at their home. Our photographer had a great time working with the adorable pair and the outdoor setting was stunning! The chemistry between the pair was strong which made capturing their engagement photos a breeze! We even got a fun shot of the couple with their dog and a chicken (that was a first!). Which finally answers the age old question.. “why did the chicken cross the road” … to take engagement photos obviously! LOL ..

When couples reach out to us to book an engagement photo session, one of the first questions they typically ask us is ” where are the best locations in NYC for engagement photos“; so our team was pleasantly surprised when Mai and Yin told us they wanted to take their engagement photos at home. The couple was planning their wedding at The Brooklyn Botanical Garden and wanted to work with our photographer before the big day and get some professional photos to use on their save the dates. This engagement photo session was actually our photographer’s first time capturing engagement photos at home but based on the results, we think Mai and Yin may be on to something! A home engagement photo session certainly helps to ease the nerves of couples who may be camera shy and nervous about taking professional photos. Our photographers often suggest choosing a location the couple has visited before to help foster a feeling of familiarity which always results in great photos, and what location is more familiar than home?
