Choosing your home for your engagement session is the perfect choice for those who want something a little more personal to them as a couple. It’s perfect for the couple who have hobbies at home; for instance maybe you love to cook together or go for walks in the neighborhood. It’s also a nice choice to capture this moment in time. The home or apartment you are living in at the time you get engaged may not be your forever home. It will be fun to look back on in 5, 10 or 50 years!

There’s always that spot in everyone’s home where all the formal photos get taken. Maybe it’s that pretty tree in the front yard or maybe it’s the part that makes your property unique. Let’s re invent that space and see it in a new way.The main focus of the engagement session is get you used to the feeling of being in front of a camera. Capturing beautiful photos might seem like the obvious purpose, but it’s more about the experience. We’ll shift the focus from “OMG I’m so awkward in front of the camera!” to “Oh this isn’t so bad, it’s just us hanging out.” That’s when we’ll get the most natural photos and you’ll feel confident that the wedding day photos will be exactly what you’ve dreamed of.
For many people, the place they live in now while they are engaged isn’t going to be the place they call home forever once they are married. All the more reason to capture this moment in time during the fleeting moments of an engagement.Incorporating the pets into the engagement photos is also a much easier option when were having the session at home.
I’m Jenna. I photograph the happy stuff in and around central New Jersey. When I’m not capturing a wedding day or family moment, I’m usually scouring the nearest Trader Joe’s for a new & exciting find!
