Melbourne Engagement Sessions

Having an Engagement Session prior to your Wedding can make a world of difference on your special day, and we highly recommend it for a few reasons! 

It provides both yourselves and your Photographer, with a perfect opportunity to get to know each other before your Wedding Day. We want to make the most of this opportunity with you, in a fun, stress free and comfortable environment so that you can get a chance to have your portraits taken without the pressure of a wedding timeline and expectations.

It also provides a space in which you can get a feel for how we work and connect with you both. 

This is usually a fabulous place to start forming a friendship with us, which will be super helpful when it comes to planning your wedding, as we will be with you for most of your Wedding Day.
We want you to feel like we have your back, and have you covered!

What if it rains?

We are drawn to connection, natural light and the little nuances you share that make your relationship uniquely yours. We look to find those authentic in between moments that capture you in a candid and raw style. Black and whites are our favorite for moody classic imagery, yet the golden glow from the evening sunset evokes warmth and emotion. We aim to capture you in a natural, hands off approach creating a safe and easy going space where you are feeling more like you are on a date, rather than an Engagement or Couples photo shoot. Natural light is our favorite, but when the night sets in we love to create magical off camera mood lighting too. We will never force a smile, or ask you to say 'cheese'. We lightly direct you into position and let your natural connection come to play. That's where the magic lies. 

Much like a Bridal Portrait session, we aim to head to our agreed upon location one hour prior to sunset. The warmth that the sunset brings plays beautifully through the lens, and adds depth and emotion to your imagery. 
It also allows for a much more creative end result with your photographs. 
The light at that time of day envelops you and your loved one so beautifully and having that gorgeous light flare dance between your bodies is nothing short of amazing.

Absolutely! We have an extensive styling board that we will share with you upon booking and reserving your date. It covers textures, layers, colour schemes with your location in mind and what will work aesthetically with it. 
We also take into account the look you are wanting to achieve. Classic and timeless clothing choices are super important and really one of the most important things you will have to consider. 
Client's typically send through their options they are working with and we help choose with them! 

Firstly, we know what it feels like to be in front of the camera, not just behind it. Nerves are a real thing but because we understand how you may be feeling, we gently guide you into each others arms and make sure your focus is on your loved one, rather than us. We also have a few tricks up our sleeve to help you feel calm, and ideally - you wont be feeling like you are on a photoshoot at all. You will be having fun with one another and within minutes you will wonder why you worried so much! Another sneaky little tip we love to suggest, is to plan to arrive before us at the location of choice, set up a blanket and bring a bottle of champagne. Have a little 'mini date' prior to your session. You will be all photo ready, feeling beautiful together, so why not make an extra special evening of it? 

Awesome! All you will need to do is click the 'I'm ready to take the next step' button below, and we will chat a little more about everything you are wanting from your Engagement or Couples Photo Shoot. We adore our clients and want the very best experience for them from start to finish. 
If you would like to have a chat to us over the phone or even a Skype call, this can be set up in no time at all. We very much look forward to hearing from you and creating absolute magic together for you to keep and cherish forever. xxx

As much as we would like to be able to predict Melbourne's weather, we know that it's quite unreliable. But not to worry at all. If it rains, we can reschedule to the next available date for you. 
However, if you feel game enough for some fun in the rain, let's go ahead with your session! 
Who doesn't love those happy and crazy rain shots candidly showing off all the fun and laughter you will have together. Kind of like little kids playing about. What awesome memories they will be! 

No. Absolutely no delivered image in your package will be sent with watermarks on them. 

Usually we like to edit a sneak peek for you to view online within 24-48 hours after your shoot has taken place. Your entire gallery to choose from will be ready within a 2-3 week time frame at most. 
They will be viewed via a super easy private online gallery where you can select your favorites. 
Once you have chosen them your prints will be ordered and packaged up for you shortly after.

We are ready to take the next step! 

"Would I recommend Catherine?


 From my first conversation with her Catherine was nothing but professional, friendly, easy going, and totally understanding.

My (now) husband and I have previously been uncomfortable and totally awkward in front of the camera but Catherine is so personable and worked with us at our engagement shoot to make it comfortable.

Cat really captured us being us (she was oh-so patient with his silly side).
The end result made me feel beautiful, but I didn't need to see the engagement shoot pictures to know she was perfect for us.

Catherine just fit in right along beside us like she had been a long term friend, and the breath taking images (which all our friends and family have commented about) make it seem surreal.

 Catherine kept in complete contact with me right up until the morning of the wedding and onwards, even some words of encouragement and positive vibes when the weather sent us some worrying signs.

We looked at images family members have sent where Catherine was beside or near us in images with the comment made by us "there's our girl" amazed that she never missed a moment.

Our wedding day was worry free and we were filled with confidence and trust knowing you knew what to do. We drove away that night both talking about how amazing you were and how blessed we have been meeting you.

There is no one else I could imagine trusting with taking our most important images. Thank you so much for all your love and friendship you have given both of us."


'I found Catherine on Insta + her photography skills stand out to me due to the close connection she brings out in Couples and families . Her style & work is unique and I just had to have her capture my families next milestone .
I secretly new she would also bring out the goods with my husband who like most doesn't like being in front of the camera . Her communication prior and throughout was excellent ,the gallery options are endless and Catherine makes magic last a lifetime with her work .
I defiantly recommend Catherine's talents she's a gem'


'Wow guys, thank you so much! They were everything we had hoped for. Thank you to the both of you.'


'Got our pictures printed, love them! Thank you so much. It was awesome to have a session before the wedding!'
