Kiernen and Parker got cozy for their Lifestyle Engagement Session in Winston Salem. What is a Lifestyle Engagement Session? Lifestyle photography in general is a way of capturing the ordinary moments of life in an extraordinary way. It seeks to document those casual moments and milestones of life. Therefore a Lifestyle Engagement Session captures the couple spending time together at home (or in this case, a studio). These sessions are more laid back and relaxed. There may be some posing, but also lots of prompts designed to elicit real emotions.
Is a Lifestyle Engagement Session Right for You?
We love engagement sessions with our couples for several reasons. One, it allows us to get to know you more as a couple. We can see your chemistry and how you interact with each other. We can get to know your likes and dislikes and what makes you both tick. Two, engagement sessions allow you to get to know us better. You will get a chance to see us in action and how we interact with each other and you. Third, engagement sessions are like a practice run for your wedding day. You will get to see a bit of our posing flow and how we coach our couples into looking their best.
So what makes a lifestyle engagement session different? With a regular engagement session, you may get all dressed up and go to your favorite place. You may want to travel and have an adventure. During a lifestyle session, you may just want to cozy up in your favorite spot – home. That doesn’t mean you can’t get dressed up or do something fun during your session, it just means you don’t have to go anywhere special to make the magic happen.
What if you like the look and feel of a lifestyle but don’t really want to do it in your own home? That is okay! Lifestyle sessions can take place in other cozy spaces. Kiernen and Parker’s lifestyle engagement session took place in Winston Salem at the GingerBirdie Studio. If a studio like this isn’t available to you, renting an Air BnB is another option. You can take it an extra step and turn it into a weekend getaway!
