Los Angeles At Home Engagement Photography – Erin and Michael

I’m so excited to post part 1 of Erin and Michael’s awesome engagement photo session. Erin and Michael were the winners of the photography giveaway I did with A Practical Wedding in September. I knew I would like them from the sweet, funny entry Erin wrote, but I was not prepared for how it would be like meeting parallel-universe version of myself and the ways our paths had crossed before. Erin and I actually met once a few years ago when I photographed the rehearsal for a wedding she was a bridesmaid in. Then it turns out she and Michael lived in the exact same apartment complex as me, and we overlapped for a year without ever running into each other. And it’s not a big complex! But then when I walked into their adorable living room, it was cemented even further when I saw a lot of the same stuff I have in my own home. Color-coded bookshelves, Berkeley Illustration animal prints, Marcel Dzama sad ghost salt and pepper shakers, cute cats. Hanging out with Erin and Michael for afternoon felt like meeting up with friends, and when I have that much in common with the couples I’m taking pictures of, I must be doing something right. Right?

    What a cute couple! I love how this was done in their home. I think years to come they will cherish these so much more than if it was just shot at some random location.

  • Great work Jessica, you've captured them together beautifully!

  • Fully love these. Super cute having them shot at their house where they are probably most comfortable.

  • Oh this is lovely! I like the cat! Meow! Its real comfy to shoot at home too!

    This is so cute! Seriously. I think I'm going to ask more of my couples to let me come to their home. Great photos - I'm sure they're delighted.
