One of the questions I am asked most often by couples when we’re planning their engagement session is where we should meet to capture their photos. I always suggest capturing a soon-to-be married duo in a spot that holds meaning to them, like the location of their first date, a park or garden, a vacation home down the Shore, or even at home. For Brittaney and Pete, the location for their session was a given and a celebration because they had just custom built their first home together! An engagement session at home!
B+P’s engagement photos are some of my favorites to date. These two could not have been more relaxed or fun-loving, and I think that’s due in part to the relationship they share as well as how comfortable (and excited!) they felt about being together in their new home. We captured photos in a variety of spots throughout their house, from their kitchen complete with a coffee bar to their natural light-filled master suite. I loved the neutral colors that fill their new space together just as much as the casual outfits they opted to wear and the fact that they wanted to have a pillow fight.
Brittaney and Pete are down to earth, energetic, relatable, and just plain lovely. I loved the behind-the-scenes peek they offered me of the life they will build together now and after their wedding day in October at The Ryland Inn.
