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.

Let's start from the basics.

Do you need your engagement images only for social media?

No problem. This is where we start. You will have your engagement session covered for an affordable price. Not everybody wants to print their engagement photos - we understand. If you just want to share images with friends on social media - this is your solution.

Save money today. Upgrade later - if you decide to print your engagement photos (social media size images are suitable for printing to 6"x4").

Do you want to print your engagement images?

No problem. Upgrade and add all images from your engagement session in their original size. The same size we use for printing.

If you don't need all images in their full size, pick only those photos you really want.

When you choose Salava Photography you choose Jan & Rochelle to be your photographers.

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 proposal.
The final selection of the images from your proposal is our responsibility. We aim to show you the best out of your proposal 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 standard. 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
