Ten Reasons for Doing a Couple Photoshoot at Home

Nothing makes me happier than couples who want to take their engagement photos at home. Not going after epic “instagrammable” backdrops, but places of significance. I’ve been shooting more and more in-home sessions recently. I think the reason for that is, of course, the state of the world, but also, it takes the pressure off of you. Pressure off of finding a place, scouting locations, and putting the energy into shooting somewhere that may not feel so comfortable but looks great in photos. See where I’m going with this?

Fun fact: When I first started capturing in-home sessions, I used to tell my clients to prep/tidy their places for the shoot. Then, I realized I was imposing myself by doing that. So I stopped, and since then, I see more of you and less of me.

Here are ten reasons for doing a couple photoshoot at home instead of at a studio or outdoors!

Ten Reasons for Doing a Couple Photoshoot at Home

  • Unique: It’s YOUR place (vs. a beautiful public place).
  • Comfort: There’s nothing like the comfort of one’s home. Shooting there will make you relaxed.
  • Privacy: No random people photobombing your shots and/or making you feel awkward.
  • Intimacy: Comfort and privacy lead to moments that are a lot more intimate than somewhere public.
  • Time Capsule: Your photos are even more significant because they capture your nest. Down the line, they’ll remind you of your shared past in even more special ways. For example: A photo of you in your own bed may bring back LOTS of memories 😉
  • Daily Life: We get to capture your everyday life (cooking, Netflix and chill, shower 😉 …)
  • Weather: No need to worry about weather.
  • Light: We are not limited to sunrise or sunset, as long as there is enough natural light coming through.
  • Outfits: So much easier to change into different outfits since everything you own is there.
  • Effortless: This one is for partners who hate taking pictures. Think of it like you’re ordering room service—you get the whole experience without leaving home!

In the end, home is where the heart is. And wherever that is for you, it is perfect. ❤️
