A Cinnamon Bun Photoshoot Part 2: Home

We spent about 45 minutes at the ruins, then we hopped in our cars and drove to our home. I’d thought about doing a shoot in our kitchen, with brownies or muffins or something. But in the end I decided that our kitchen is just too terra cotta, and I didn’t want that immortalized. ;) Cinnamon Buns also wanted to get photos of us in front of our bookcases, cuddling on the couch, drinking tea, playing Wii”¦all the things we do normally when we’re at home together. Once again, all photos in the post are by Fotograffika.

(Sidenote: I love how our bookcases look in black and white!)

Drank tea from our matching mugs (his is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, mine is Dame Agatha Christie).

Wii tickle fight!

Then a round of Mario Kart, complete with tickle fight when we were done! (Mosaic by me, with photos by Fotograffika)

Disapproving fish is disapproving!

I am so happy we did some of our engagement shoot at home and amazed that Vanson got such great pictures. I always think of our house as a little dim—we face north, and we’re a few feet below grade—but with the help of a great day and a great photographer, it almost looks like a magazine house! Oh, and the tremendous amount of cleaning both of us put in in the days leading up to the shoot. :)

Would you consider doing engagement photos at your home?

    Cute pics! Your house is adorable–the built-in bookcases are awesome and a great backdrop. My house is nowhere near as cool as yours so I don’t think any amount of good photography could have made it a good setting for our e-pics!

    awww I love the “Cuddled” One :D and the idea of doing it at home- it has the air of being candid, but also being really intimate and genuine which I love.

    @Pomapoo: That’s what I mean about our house looking great in the photos! They’re not built-in bookcases, they’re just lots of Ikea Billy bookcases!
    Although I will say that we cleaned everything really well the day before. :)

    This is such a great idea! Your photos are truly you and you had to be incredibly comfortable. These are lovely!
