Engagement Photographers

Are you engaged - looking for a photographer to document your love commitment? We are Sydney engagement photographers, ready to capture your first official steps leading to your wedding day.

Engagement Photography

Getting engaged is an official announcement of the intention to marry. I climbed on top of the Harbour Bridge to make our relationship with Rochelle official back in the day.

Engagement is a big deal - for that reason, it deserves to be documented by a photographer.

Who are we?

We are Rochelle & Jan - two photographers who will photograph your engagement session. We never delegate our responsibility of taking photos to anybody else. We are a family business and we love to document how others are becoming one entity.

Benefits of hiring a photographer for engagement

Using a professional photographer for your engagement has benefits.

  • photography is taken care of - you can focus on enjoying the special moments between you and your partner without the stress of documenting the occasion for your family & friends
  • you can experience as a couple how you feel together in front of the camera before your wedding.
  • if you enjoy your photography experience with us as your engagement photographers and you like your engagement photos, you have just saved yourself the headache of looking for your wedding photographer.

How much does engagement photography cost?

Everybody has different needs. Our engagement pricing is structured in a way that allows you to find the right solution for you.

You choose the number of hours you need us for. You choose if you need your images only in form of digital files or if you want to print them.

Not everybody wants to print their engagement photos - we understand - but if you do, we can promise you the best printing solution we have been able to find

    We take pride in the photography we do and for that reason, we never send anybody else to take pictures on our behalf.

    There are companies, which will send to you their contract workers to take pictures on behalf of that company, but that's not us. We always work together and we will always be the ones you will see taking pictures at your engagement session.
    The final selection of the images from your engagement is our responsibility. We aim to show you the best out of your engagement session therefore not every image taken can be selected.

    No photographer in the world can take a perfect photo every time he presses the camera trigger. We all make mistakes, we all shake, we all are testing if a certain idea will work or not. People are blinking their eyes and all subjects in our environment can act unpredictably and ruin our photo idea.

    For all those reasons we do the final selection to make sure that all selected images are our minimum and above technical and artistic standards. Images that don't meet our standards are not selected. Those are mostly duplicates or near-duplicates, unflattering images, closed eyes images or out of focus images.

    The judgement of photographs is subjective and therefore each person may have a different opinion on the image selection. The final selection will represent us, therefore it is at our discretion to choose those photographs and show you the best out of our work.
    We accept the following payment methods:

    • Online Bank Transfer
    • Direct Debit
    • Paypal
    • Credit Card
    After you pay the deposit for your engagement session you have 14 days where you can change your mind and ask for your money back with no strings attached.
