A pre-wedding shoot is a photo shoot with you and your partner, at a location of your choice (or I can help with ideas). Your pre-wedding shoot goes for 1.5 hours on a weekday and is a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera. Most of our couples choose to have a pre-wedding shoot and really love the experience!

Many of our couples also choose to use their favourite pre-wedding shoot photos for a photo signing book or a canvas to display at the wedding reception. A pre-wedding shoot is also a great way to get photos in a location that may otherwise not be possible on your wedding day (for example, where you proposed, or where you like to hang out).

Your pre-wedding shoot costs $950, which includes your shoot and digital images. My pre-wedding shoot time slots are very limited due to my busy wedding schedule, so book in your shoot now to secure your spot. Just click the button below and fill in your details.

Wedding photographer review


• Do I need a pre-wedding shoot?

Most of my couples book an engagement session (aka pre-wedding shoot) with me. They are a fantastic way to get comfortable in front of the camera, get a hair and make-up trial, and get creative with your outfits and location choices. Here are 9 Reasons to book a pre-wedding shoot.

• Can I have a shoot like this even if I'm already married (or not planning to)?

Absolutely. I do couple shoots for anniversaries, surprise gifts for partners, and couples who simply want to celebrate their love.

• When will my photos by ready?

Your pre-wedding photos will be ready in 2 weeks. You can access your photos via an easy-to-use password protected online gallery, which is perfect for sharing with family and friends, and I'll send you a link to download your images in high resolution.

• What can I do with my pre-wedding shoot photos?

A lot of my couples choose one of their pre-wedding photos to display as a canvas or metal print at the entrance to their wedding and reception, for a more personal way to welcome their guests. We also create beautiful hard-cover photo signing books, which have your favourite picture on the cover, and inside are professionally-designed pages with your pre-wedding photos and plenty of blank space for guests to sign their messages.

You can check out photos of these products here.

• How many photos do we receive?

While every pre-wedding shoot is different, you can expect to receive around 100 images. I will present your images on a private online gallery for easy sharing with your guests, as well as a digital download for the high resolution images.

• Do you edit all the photos?

All of your photos are edited in our signature editing style. This includes adding pop to colours and bringing out details.

• How much does it cost?

Your pre-wedding shoot is $750, which includes a 1.5-2 hour location shoot and all edited digital images. Canvases start from $380, and signing guest books are $350. Please contact me to book in your shoot (spaces are limited due to my busy wedding schedule) and I'd be happy to send you my detailed price guide.
