What is an Engagement Shoot?
Have you ever wondered what happens in an Engagement Shoot?? Like what even is an engagement shoot? Is it photos of our engagement party or a couples shoot ?
Engagement shoots are included in all of our wedding packages and I absolutely LOVE them!!
They are a great way to take a minute from all the wedding planning and just enjoy what is your “Engagement”
Plus it’s an awesome time to get rid of all the camera awkwardness and just practice for your big day ? if I had a dollar for everytime someone told me they hate photos and are super awkward… I would be a millionaire ? this is why I try to make it super fun and make you forget your actually being photographed. We chat throughout the whole session and have loads of fun and laughs ??
How does it work
Are you after some fun and super natural photos of you and your significant other? If you answered yes… DON’T wait to book your session!!
Engagement shoots are held twice a month and at a different location each month. Some locations include The Forest, Shorncliffe Beach, Point Cartwright, Emu Mountain, One Tree Hill, Mount Coot-The and the list goes on. They go for 30minutes and are held in the last 2 hours of Sunlight in that “Golden Hour”.
These are included in all my wedding packages OR if you are just after a super fun photoshoot. Individually these shoots are $690 including all the images!
I only take a certain amount of bookings per month so once you decide you want these photos. The best thing to do is to I book your session in asap! My weekends quickly book out with weddings so availability is very limited.
So get in touch now to make sure you don’t miss out!

WHERE WILL THE PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION BE?
These sessions are held in the great outdoors twice a month. You can pick from a Beach, park or forest outdoor setting or if there is a location significant to you let me know and we will make it happen.
HOW LONG DOES AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION TAKE?
Engagement sessions take 30 minutes and are best shot in the last 2 hours of sunlight. We hold 4 sessions twice a month on the half hour mark.
DO WE NEED TO DO OUR HAIR AND MAKEUP?
I suggest you do your own hair and makeup as if you were going out to a nice dinner. This way it is natural and still looks like you. However, if you would rather someone else do it I do have a hair and makeup artist I can recommend.
WHEN WILL OUR IMAGES BE READY?
It takes around 2 weeks and your gallery will be uploaded to my website where you can download all your images.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?
Normally around 40-60 images depending.
CAN I RECEIVE MY IMAGES UNEDITED/‘RAW’?
No. The subtle editing that I do to your images is part of my artistic style & therefore I am unable to supply unedited files, as is the case with all respected professional photographers.
DO I RECEIVE ALL IMAGES TAKEN ON THE DAY?
No. I sort through your images and pick the best images from the day. This could be anywhere from 40-60 images.
DO WE HAVE TO PAY A DEPOSIT TO MAKE A BOOKING?
Yes. We are very busy and only take a certain amount of bookings per month so to lock in your allocated month we need a non-refundable booking fee. This is a third of the collection price you decide to choose. Payment will be made via PayPal when booking your time slot in our calendar.
WHEN AND HOW DO WE HAVE TO PAY THE REMAINING BALANCE?
Remaining balance is required to be paid 24 hours prior to your session. Payment can be made by Bank Transfer, cash or credit card (please note: there is a 2% surcharge on all credit card transactions).
