We're thinking about having an engagement shoot. I've found a photographer I like in Wellington that will do the shoot and give us all of the images for $300 which sounds like an amazing deal.
How has had one or is planning to and what are your thoughts on this? Also, what kind of pics would be good? I was thinking of going to the Botanical Gardens but there must be some other more original places around Wellington. Any thoughts/ideas?
Engagement sessions give you a chance to work with your photographer before the wedding day, so you can find out any issue beforehand. They don't have to be cheesy, the can be as tasteful, fun, or as quirky as you like!
I say go for it. For $300 you could end up with some beautiful shots that you will treasure
That's exactly what we're doing. Our photographer is doing a complimentary engagement shoot as part of the wedding package. Worth choosing a photographer who offers this as part of the deal. We are going to use one of the pics for our save the date cards. Will DIY these and get them printed at Warehouse Stationery.
I do an engagement shoot for $99.
An hour and 25 images.
I do at this price because
a) I may have the chance to book the wedding
b) even if I don't get to do their wedding, my images will be used and other friends and family may book me
c) I love photographing people who are in love.
Some photographers will add an engagement shoot as part of the wedding package, others will do it as an add on.
