How To Have An Engagement Shoot Without Ever Leaving Home!

How to have an engagement shoot without ever leaving home

I'm not really one for planning and getting my photo taken. I would much rather be the one behind the camera but if I am going to be the subject I would much prefer to have something to do with my hand ( I never seem to know what to do with my hands) and to stick to places I have a comfort and fondness for. Home is one of the big places I love, the kitchen to be exact, and I'm not alone. Prudence and Mark this next couple had their engagement photos taken while preparing a breakfast for two! 

So for all our homebodies out there, this engagement shoot is going to be right up your alley so keep scrolling to see how this sweet little Saturday shoot went and don't forget to check out the full gallery for even more adorable candid shots. Oh and did I mention recipes? There are recipes below too!

From Yinger Wong: Anyone will tell you it is all about location location location location when it comes to an engagement session, but equally I believe the story, sentiment and significance that makes up the couple are just as important, if not more. 

Like many couples, either they are uncomfortable with being in front of cameras, or they feel that they are not "photogenic." The best way I have found to overcome the fear of being in front of the camera is to listen to their story and to do what they love! Through our conversations, I discovered their passion for cooking; so we carefully selected a location with an open kitchen that bathed in natural light with plenty of character. I was so happy to see Prudence and Mark in their natural element, which allowed them to be themselves and we were rewarded with pancakes in the end!
