WHO ARE ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS FOR?
Our Engagement Photoshoots are for two people celebrating a romantic phase in their life. The session is more casual and candid, suited for couples who prefer the spontaneity that comes with being outdoors.
This may also be your first time getting a professional photoshoot done. If you have an upcoming wedding, Engagement sessions are great to get you relaxed and comfortable being in front of a camera before the big day. You will gain experience that may be helpful when posing for your wedding photographers.
WHERE IS THE SHOOT?
Prior to the session, we will organise with you 2 outdoor locations surrounding Melbourne. This may be somewhere in Dandenong with beautiful greenery, Melbourne city streets, or further south at Mornington beach.
HOW LONG IS THE SESSION?
We offer a half-day weekend booking for our Engagement sessions. You may choose to start early in the morning for some sunrise photos or start midday to catch the sunset later in the evening. With 2 outdoor locations, we are confident in capturing many photos of you and your loved one.
WHAT CLOTHES DO I NEED TO PREPARE?
Due to the chill vibe of our Engagement photoshoots and being outdoors, I ask that couples come dressed in your own clothes and to bring at least one more additional outfit.
Please don't feel like you need to go out to buy new clothes. I recommend wearing something from your existing wardrobe that is smart casual, and in a neutral colour. Avoid anything that is too bold or with striking logos/patterns. Have a look at my Engagement Gallery for inspiration.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE PHOTOSHOOT?
The week following your photoshoot, I will send you a sneak peek photo for you to send to family, or to share with friends on social media. If you do upload online, please tag me @themomentsbymelissa.
Your remaining images will be ready to download within three weeks. I edit each image individually through Lightroom and Photoshop to give you a flawless final product. You will receive a minimum of 20 images, but I will give as many as possible. Read more information about this in our Final Images FAQs.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?
Please book in advance, especially if you want to print anything to be displayed at your wedding. I personally love to see Engagement photos when I am waiting around eating canapés before the reception.
