A love shoot, e-session, engagement shoot, call it what you want, they are relaxed, natural and most of all, loads of fun.
Studio, location, styled, lifestyle...The engagement shoot, or e-session, has come a long way with some couples going to great lengths to style the shoot at a specific location with matching wardrobe and details.
(Pssst, you can use the next and prev arrows or your arrow keys to navigate.)
Along with our time spent shooting, we include editing time and burning or copying digital files to DVD. The DVD will include a hi-resolution folder for printing and lo-resolution folder with our logo for social media and sharing. If you decide to order additional items, those costs will be added to your order and itemised accordingly.
Nobody likes hidden costs so your shoot and the images outlined in the package you choose are included in the price. Some locations / venues do charge a fee for their use, but that will be discussed before we decide on a location for your shoot.
Although i have a studio, couple shoots are best done on location. A forest, open veld, the Johannesburg CBD – we can shoot your session anywhere you like.
I recommend scheduling your portrait shoot around 1.5 hrs before sunset as this time of day has the best light.
The most important thing is that you’re comfortable. Wear what you feel good in, as that will usually show through in the photos. Clothes with texture and colour are great – think about what would look interesting, and try to co-ordinate styles a bit if you’re doing a couple or family shoot. I would avoid patterns, dots, zigzags and logos which can all draw the focus away from you are a couple.
The session is a one hour shoot in my studio, at your home or at another location. If you would like a longer session we can definitely accommodate you. Longer sessions will enable you to have multiple wardrobe changes as well as multiple locations.
