As a Richmond Engagement Photographer, I loved shooting Morgan & Matt’s cozy in-home engagement photos!
Want to hear a little about their proposal story first? Matt proposed to Morgan on Christmas Eve! The night before Christmas, the couple was taking a walk around their old neighborhood when he popped the question. Morgan happily accepted and their wedding plans were put into motion.
They both agreed that they wanted their engagement photo shoot to be classic and shot in their home. Their home is cozy meets modern, meets minimal. And while it’s not their forever home, they wanted to honor their first home with the memory of their engagement. So they kept their engagement session down to earth to earth and true to who they are. It was just them and their dog. Hanging out in their everyday clothes, sitting on the couch, enjoying each other’s company!
But, I did push them out of their comfort zone, just a little! Once we made our way to the kitchen, I thought it would be fun to get some shots of Morgan & Matt dancing. Isn’t the kitchen the best spot in the house to dance with the love of your life!? I told them to “twirl”, but (and this is according to Morgan!) Matt doesn’t know how to dance. So instead, he kept pushing Morgan away and back in again. And they had the best laugh together about this! Can I just tell you? Those joyful unscripted moments are where I can capture the magic of your love story!
I have to admit though, that one of my personal favorite things to come out of their shoot was including their dog! Morgan and Matt describe their sweet boy as their best friend, so we had to include him in the shoot. I found a way to get their fur baby on board with having his picture taken! Apparently, he can be a little camera shy from time to time! And then he wanted to be in every shot! So adorable!
