Cozy In-Home Lifestyle Photography Session | Pittsburgh Engagements

These jet-setting travel bugs decided to kick it back at home for their engagement session. True to their personality, they wanted photos that felt warm, personable, and authentic. A cozy at-home lifestyle photography session fit the bill perfectly. This is their first home together, and they want to remember how this sweet milestone felt forever.

Since it’s winter, I like to remind couples that they don’t have to brave the weather or postpone their engagement session for better weather if they don’t want to. Indoor engagement sessions work really well, too! Plus, an in-home session might help you relax and feel more “at home” in front of the lens. The results are always super cute and romantic, with a mix of classic portraits you’ll cherish for a lifetime.

Lifestyle photos look great as wall décor, and these may be your first professional portraits as you embark on this new journey together. But you certainly don’t have to be engaged, either! In-home portrait sessions are fun for all couples! You deserve professional photos together no matter what route you take or what stage of life you’re in.

What is Lifestyle Photography?

Lifestyle photography is just like it sounds. I should consist of snapshots from your everyday life in everyday circumstances. The focus is on you, the relationship, and deep connections more than wardrobe, props, or backdrops. Lifestyle photography is a very unique style in that it’s a brilliant balance of seemingly contradictory styles. Here’s what I mean:

Lifestyle photography is….

  • Fun yet sophisticated
  • Modern yet timeless
  • Relaxed yet romantic
  • Flirty yet authentic
  • Warm yet clean & light

Take a look at Rachel and Dave’s captivating in-home session and see if you agree. If you struggle to find a photography style that you both like, an in-home lifestyle session may be the answer you’re looking for.

Alternatively, you could book a home session first to capture some candid shots as we get to know each other, and then book a more formal or traditional engagement session later. You’ll get lots of intimate photos that the two of you love, plus some that you can put on a save-the-date to Grandma. You won’t regret having a variety of photos from this monumental stage in your life.
