Just for the Two of You
Great Practice Before Your Big Day!Getting to Know Your Photographer
An engagement session is photographed several months before your wedding.
It takes place before your big day and is a great session for several reasons including getting some time in front of the cameras before the real wedding day photos. This will make you much more relaxed on your big day. If either of you are a little unsure about having photos done then please consider this session. After the session all your doubts will be gone, guaranteed.
There are two great options for guest books:
- 10″x10″ Storybook Album for (Matt Laminate cover, 10 pages & 20 sides)
- 12″x12″ Storybook Album for (Matt Laminate cover, 10 pages & 20 sides)
This All Sounds Great, but What Are the Advantages of an Engagement Session?
There are many advantages of having an engagement session. If you are not familiar with an an engagement session or are considering whether it’s right for you, then read on!
If nothing else, an engagement session is a great opportunity for you to get some camera time. We absolutely guarantee that you will be more comfortable come Wedding day with the photography side of things. You will have a lot of fun and you will feel much more relaxed after your session in Wollongong.
2) Together Shots
When was the last time you had some nice photos together? The photography can be very intimate or fun or a combination of both. We don’t just want to take photos that you will use in your guest book, we want to take photos that you will put up around your house. As photographers we always get a kick out of doing bride prep at the brides house and seeing canvas prints or frames from your session in your homes.
3) Makeup & Hair Trial
The engagement session is a fantastic opportunity to trial your Hair & Makeup for your Wedding day. Sure… if you are going to have an up-style we don’t recommend that for your Pre Wedding photoshoot, but more and more brides are having down-styles, so this is a great opportunity to try out your Hair & Makeup and see it in the actual photos from the actual camera and photographer that will capture your special day. We recommend Jacinta Hansen for all your Makeup needs. Jacinta works with Sarah Tuckey who is one of the best hair dressers we have ever seen (& we have see a lot in our time).
4) The Guest Book
The Guest book is a beautifully presented magazine style album with a matt laminate cover. It has 10 pages / 20 sides and comes in a 10″x10″ or 12″x12″ version. Your Wedding guests sign next to the photo with a black felt line marker. It is a great memento of your guests well wishes that’s personalised for you. It’s a lot more intimate than a guest book brought from a store as it’s all about you. As an added bonus your guests love to look through it.
5) “Save The Date” & Table Numbers
Imagine the look on your guests face when they sit at their table at your Wedding and see a photo of you both holding their table number. This has been a huge hit at Weddings and we are doing it more and more now. We bring along a chalk board and we get you to do 10-12 different shots to make up the table numbers. If you have your photo session early enough you can even do a “Save The Date” shot as in the gallery above. We are very flexible and if you have an idea, we will always try and accommodate it.

There is no doubt about it, Sydney is an amazing location for your engagement session. You have the option of adding Sydney to your session for a completely different look to your guest book and engagement session.
