Shantel and Josh's Professional Engagement Photo Shoot

Updated: Mar 3


When Shantel & Josh contacted us about a pre wedding photography shoot, we were so excited to plan an amazing photography session for them in the Blue Mountains.


For our couple, their decision and motivation to book an professional engagement photography session was all about getting themselves comfortable in front of the camera and getting to know us before their big day of wedding photography.


Together, we decided on one of our favourite cliff top locations in the Blue Mountains where we were not disappointed as the cloudy afternoon put on a spectacular sunset even though the temperature was very cool.


You can see in some of our images we are sharing with you that Shantel's hair was blowing in the breeze, adding to the movement and mood of the photography. There may even have been some goose bumps but they soldiered on and really got into enjoying the experience and the camera!

We didn't have to wander far to achieve some amazing and natural photos of our couple enjoying each others company and having a cuddle.


The bush landscape is rugged and beautiful. The Blue Mountains is a great location for our outdoor couple shoots. It's often very different to what our bride and grooms will have on their wedding day and it's a peaceful and out of the way place to just be yourself. Perfect for camera-shy couples! We love when we get a place to ourselves to just hang out and interact, have a chat and get to know our couples.


If you are considering a photography location for couple photography, think about where you would like to go. Do you want to go somewhere different to your proposed wedding day locations or do you want to see how some of your wedding day locations may photograph? These are the sort of discussions we can have with you in your lead up preparations. 


We are all about photographs in the moment that will be precious now and in the future. Our Senior photographer and light chaser, Sarah used a long lens that allowed for some distance between Shantel and Josh and the camera, so that they could still have their privacy and we could get some of those more intimate moments and capture them with honesty and authenticity.


We couldn't help but zoom in on that bling though! Shantel's diamond engagement ring was sparkling in the light and we think it makes for some pretty amazing detail shots.


When it comes to enjoying these photos, these days there are several ways we like to print and display our engagement photography for our couples. We create wedding guest signing books, save the date cards, engagement photo albums and wall frames along with many other products to suit your home and wedding day.


Your pre-wedding photography can be a stand alone session or combined with a wedding photography package. You can see more of our pre wedding photography information and gallery here.


If you want to speak to us or you have any questions about your pre wedding photography or wedding photography call our photography team today or message us here.


Our pre wedding photography packages and engagement photography packages are also available to give as a gift voucher. They make for the perfect engagement party gift or perhaps to your other half for your dating anniversary.
