Ooooh you got engaged! Let’s celebrate!
So, I hear you just got engaged and are throwing an engagement party. That’s awesome, engagement parties are a hoot! It’s like a mini wedding without all that stress that usually comes with a wedding (not saying that weddings aren’t amazing, because they are!). It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate your love with family and friends in a more relaxed way, and who doesn’t love that?
Covering an engagement party is a bit different than a wedding. Sure you might have a kick-ass outfit and cute decorations, but this event is not about decorations and formalities – it’s all about the people.
Okay, so what do you capture?
For engagement parties I usually capture the following:
My basic package includes 2 hours of coverage, but additional hours can be added on request.
You get at least 90 photos per hour of shooting. All edited, all done.
“Stina, you’ve outdone yourself! These are all so beautiful!!!”
Had a flick through and had a little cry <3

Ok, how does this work?
01. Book it in
If all sounds good, it’s time to get things in order. To lock in a date I require a signed contract + a 50% retainer to lock in the date.
03. Pre-party questionnaire
When you book I’ll send you a questionnaire too with more details about the day: what you care about, what you don’t care about. Ill check in closer to the date so I know I have all the info I need!
03. It’s time to party
It’s about to go down! Most of the time I stay in the background and capture things as they happen. I’m not here to stage anything. And for the 10 min of portraits we usually squeeze in I use direction, not posing. This means things to do or things to talk about. Unposed, unfussed, easy!
06. Sneak peeks the next day
You get the first few photos the very next day! Cause who can wait? I surely can’t!
07. All photos within 2 weeks
The rest of the photos take a little bit longer: you’ll have them all, print-ready + web-ready, within 2 weeks of the wedding. You get them all in this snazzy online gallery!
“Stina is a rock star!”
We put our trust in her genius hands and she delivered in spades! We both hate having our photos taken and she made the process special to us and unique. Yay!

This is what you get
I’m a planner by heart. I have lists everywhere (just ask my husband..) and like to be as prepared as I can be. Because on the day I want to know that we’re picking the acest of locations and making the most out of the time we have for portraits. It’s your wedding day, not a shoot after all. That is what it’s about after all! All my wedding packages always include the following:
All you need to do is pick the number of hours you want!
I had to stop watching at work or the tears were going to start!! Happy tears I promise. They are amazing! You are the greatest – a million thank yous! We love these.
Chiara & Nathan
Two hours is usually enough to capture a few portraits before, the hugs and love when people arrive to people mingling and enjoying themselves and any potential early speeches, cake cuts etc.
350 per hour
When you want a little bit more. I can be there capturing you getting ready, or stay on for some crazy dancing later in the night! No problem at all! I’ll stay as long as you need me. Additional time can be booked in blocks of 30 min.
What is the next step?
Just email me back and we’ll take it from there!
Go to your email. just do it. You know you want to. or just maybe go have a piece of chocolate and a glass of wine, you deserve that too!
