Or if you would just like the ceremony photographed, that’s no problem either.

What is an engagement photo shoot?
An engagement shoot is so much fun! During the lead up to your wedding we go to a pretty location and take some wonderful pictures of you and your fiancé. This session not only creates some beautiful images during the excitement leading up to your big day, but it can really help to get you acquainted and relaxed in front of the camera which for the more camera shy is a blessing for when it comes to your wedding day.
What style of photography do you do?
We like to shoot a mixture of documentary photographs, posed up photographs, and even some traditional family photographs too. They are all wonderful to have and always like to recommend a mixture of them. However if you have your heart set on a particular style throughout your whole wedding day then please ask, we’re very happy to oblige.
Are there travel costs?
Travel costs within our local and surrounding areas are included within the estimate we provide you with. If your wedding is further afield any additional travel costs involved will be included in our estimate before you decide to book us.
How far ahead can we book with you?
As far ahead as you wish! The further ahead of your big day that you get in touch with us, the more likely it is that we will be available. So get in touch early to avoid any disappointment.
How long until we will see our images?
We like to say to expect them within 4 – 6 weeks, depending on our work load. We really understand how much you want to see them all and we do strive to get them to you as soon as we possibly can.
What kind of packages do you offer?
What we do for all of our wedding couples is provide your finished photographs/video in one of our beautiful wooden presentation boxes complete with your photographs/video pre-loaded to a wooden USB stick.
We also upload your photographs/video to a password protected online album where you can view and download your photographs. You can even share this with all your loved ones too.
If you wish to order an album or individual prints through us, we can do this any time you like after your wedding.
