Engagement Parties

Engagement-Paries-Engagement-Shoots-Melbourne-Wedding-PhotographyEngagement parties are a hoot! It’s like a mini wedding without all that stress (not saying that weddings aren’t amazing, because they are!).  It’s a perfect opportunity to mingle with family and friends in a more relaxed way, and who doesn’t love that?

Covering an engagement party is different than a wedding. Sure you might have a kick-ass outfit and cute decorations, but this event is all about the people. I act as a fly on the wall, capturing candid moments of laughter, hugs or hilariousity (that is not even a word, but you get what I mean). Usually I also snap a few shots of the couple in question, along with a couple of snaps of groups.

A couple of hours fairly early during the event normally does the trick. That gives me ample time to snap some great shots while the hairdo’s and makeup are still in place.


  • Up to 2 hours dedicated photography time
  • Professional editing of all the good photos from the shoot
  • Delivery of 5-10 preview images within 24 hours
  • Delivery of an online gallery with all the good photos from the day (normally around 100 images) within 2 weeks, often faster.
  • Delivery of all the photos on a USB drive with non watermarked print-ready and internet-ready photos.


My standard engagement party coverage is priced at $500.

Please enquire for price if you want me to stay longer, combine it with a couples session or anything else a bit out of the ordinary!
