plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

When scouring the web for engagement shoot ideas, I found almost all of my favorites in an urban setting.

BUT, today I found another great idea for an engagement session spot.  Your home.

I love the idea of shooting in your house, your home. It shows an intimate side of your relationship, the true value of it. Of course, this would really only be applicable if you two live together. Nonetheless, it’s a great spot and it’s an alternative to your traditional shoot spots!


  1. While I do like this image, I also really like the idea of doing something out of the ordinary and making the engagement pictures pop. I’m a huge fan of graffiti, brick walls and city settings.

    But having an “at-home” series could be really cute too.

    @Tenille I do love urban settings, and plan on incorporating it into ours, but I love that they took a different approach on this one by getting some shots in the home. It’s something I haven’t seen before.

    I’m a fan.

  4. I have seen some great engagements taken at home. I think it is a wonderful way to showcase your life.
