Chelsea + Dom’s Engagement Lifestyle Session

We can’t think of a better way to kick off the holidays than with an engagement lifestyle session; complete with a cozy fire and homemade cookies. Our lovely Full Planning & Design couple, Chelsea and Dom, invited Samantha James Photography in their beautiful home for their engagement photos. We could not be more in love! After lighting a romantic fire, they made homemade Christmas cookies and enjoyed snuggling with their adorable puppy, Milo. There is also something really special about why these two chose their home for their engagement photos. Dom proposed just 3 days after moving in! We are on board with this new trend of lifestyle engagement photos for sure!

Black and White Fireplace - Engagement Lifestyle Session

Is this not the most gorgeous fireplace? You KNOW we love all things black, white and green!

Adorable centerpiece alert! Totally loving the green glass and berries on top of a gold tray to give a modern, festive accent to their stunning living space.

Friends, take note, these are exactly the types of photos you will want to have for years to come.  Sam is the master of these sessions and everyone should get the honor of having her in their home to shoot a session like this at least once (….per year)!
