In-Home Engagement Photos
I’ve known my sweet friend Taylor for 3 years. We served service missions for our church together and were roommates at college for 5 semesters. She is full of quotes from The Office, sunshine, and love for all of those around her. She has such a unique way of listening and supporting her friends and family and I’ll be forever grateful to have her as one of my best friends.
She recently met the love of her life, Brett, and they asked me to take some engagement photos for them. Her aunt has a beautifully decorated house so we decided to take some in-home engagement photos which were a first for me! I loved the intimate feel it gave of peeking into a moment in someone’s life. Since you’re indoors there is a lot less light to work with, so it’s important to find the rooms that have the best natural light coming in from the windows to light your subjects faces. It’s also important to move around your subject and get various angles of the same pose. As you can see from a few of the up-close shots it gives a different vibe facing Brett versus the one facing Taylor. It’s better to have too many photos than not enough!
We also took more engagement photos at the Salt Lake City capitol building and the grounds surrounding the area. It’s was a beautiful day exploring for different backgrounds and having the couple change clothes to get a different style of shot. A fun posing prompt to give couples is to ask them to give their order at their favorite fast food restaurant in a sexy voice and whisper it into their partner’s ear. It’s sure to get some laughs and good candid shots.
