I shot several “At-Home” engagement sessions this year due to a pretty rainy late summer we had. The photos can be so intimate and beautiful when people are comfortable in their own environment. It can also be an advantage when photographing families with small children to keep them less overwhelmed in their own surroundings. We’re able to look back on these images and see the reality of our own lives more clearly- the day to day, the simplicity of what makes our lives beautiful.
Of course, not every home is suitable to shoot in. Lots of natural light and an uncluttered environment are pretty essential. Erich and Melissa’s modern Fayetteville home was a perfect backdrop for their engagement shoot. And how else can you sneak your cat into your photos?!
These two will be married this fall at Stone Chapel at Matt Lane Farms in Fayetteville.
