Couple photography Services
A love shoot, e-session, engagement shoot, call it what you want, they are relaxed, natural and most of all, loads of fun.
A lifestyle portrait shoot is ideally done at a location we decide on together that will best describe your style and personality – urban, graffiti or an open field with a river and a forest.
There are a lot of fantastic options available. We can even do a styled shoot where we play with multiple locations, style your wardrobe to match the feel of the shoot, do your hair and make-up, everything to make you feel like a rock star or a princess.
Or a rock star princess…
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.
Fortunately a beautiful location like an open field can have just as much impact. I love a location or venue that has options – a field, a forest, some architecture, some old sheds, a river. If I had my way I would build a farm like that :-)
Whatever you decide to do, you will have some great pictures of the two of you at this amazing stage of your lives.
Couple photography FAQ
What is a lifestyle shoot?
A lifestyle shoot is a relaxed shoot anywhere but the studio. They can be out in nature, the city CBD, anywhere that personifies you and your loved ones.
How long will the shoot last?
Depending on the package you choose, the shoot will be a 30min, 1hr or 2hr shoot at a location we decide on together. Longer sessions will enable you to have multiple wardrobe changes as well as multiple locations.
What should i wear?
The most important thing is that you’re comfortable. Wear what you feel good in as that confidence will come across in the pictures.
I would suggest coordinating styles if you’re doing a couple or family shoot. Avoid patterns, dots, zigzags and logos which can all draw the focus away from you.
When and where will the shoot take place?
Although I have a studio, lifestyle 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.
Are there additional fees?
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.
If you decide to order additional items, those costs will be added to your order and itemised accordingly.
What are the terms of payment?
50% Deposit upfront to secure your booking date – the balance is due 7 days before the date of your session.
