Engagement Shoot

1-2 hours plus one A3 Enlargement


 The engagement photo shoot is a great way for us to get to know each other before the wedding. 

It’s important that you are comfortable with my style and when I've been able to get to know you a little more on a personal level at the engagement shoot your wedding images can truly reflect your personalities and your relationship.

Late afternoon is a great time for a engagement shoot at a location such as a local garden or beach. 

Clothing should be kept neutral and should match the location. So, for the beach - clothing should be white, cream, beige, blue or pastels. Park or garden photo shoots are best in tans, blues and greens. You should also wear colors similar to each other.  Keep it simple, plain neutral colours, no patterns or pictures works best.  

 The most popular use for an engagement photo is a signature frame or signature guest book. You choose your favorite image and I enlarge it ready for you to mat or frame and display at the reception.

Your guests sign their well wishes around the mat instead of in a regular guest book.  A lovely momento for years to come and a nice reminder of who was there to share your special day.  You can also order albums, wall folios and prints from your engagement session.

If you can organize it and would like your bridal party to be a part of the shoot, great!  The more the merrier.  These images can also be added to your wedding album if you wish.

 Photobooks, prints, enlargements, photoblocks or canvases can be ordered as required.
