Engagement & Lifestyle

Engagement Sessions

Engagement sessions are a great way to get to know me and become abit more comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day.

What is Lifestyle Photography?

Lifestyle sessions aims to capture everyday moments in a beautiful way. These sessions can be captured in your home with your own surroundings and memories, or on location special to you as a couple or as a family, the local park, your favourite coffee shop or beautiful rural setting.

Our lifestyle sessions have very minimal posing, situations will be set up so that we can capture memories to freeze time. We can capture making a cake together, going on a coffee date, playing a board game together – whatever is real and relevant to you. Before the session think about the things that make your story special and let us know the type of things you might like to freeze in time.

Lifestyle is all about capturing those real and genuine connections, the aim isn’t to be perfect – the aim is to be genuine.

Choosing a Location.

We can shoot in urban locations; think alleyways, street art covered walls and heritage buildings. Or natural locations with gorgeous open fields, long grass and big trees. We can shoot in urban locations pretty much at any time and make use of the open shade. The best time to shoot in natural locations is just before sunset, so we can get some magical golden light!

What to wear?

For Engagement Sessions choose colours that go together and keep the same colour palette as this will unify you together in the photos. Select similar tones and colours, the  lay your outfits out too see if they look nice together. Go for textures and Layers! Layering your wardrobe looks amazing in photos think; glasses, vests, bow ties, cardigans, scarfs, beanies, tights or leggings under a skirt. Try to avoid heavily labelled clothing and keep it simple so your images will look timeless

For Lifestyle sessions, they are all about being genuine and authentic. There is no need to go out and buy new outfits. Wear the clothes in your cupboard – things you feel relaxed in and comfortable. With kids, you might like to let them choose what to wear so that they feel that they can let their little personalities out. For example, if they want to wear their tutu and tiara – let them! It captures who they are at this moment in time! You may want to restrict their choices, so that they at least pick something you have pre-approved!
