In the end we want you to walk away with memories of your relationship and the way you ‘see’ each other. Heirlooms that make your smile whenever you look at them.
Our experience helps us guide you in front of the camera. Unlike a wedding day and its time restrictions, we like to take our time getting to know each other during an engagement session. We do not rush, completely focus on our couples and create memorable relationship photographs.
Making our couples feel comfortable with us and in front of our camera is our first step creating authentic photographs, following an almost photojournalistic approach. We love true emotions one hundred percent! Our goal is to capture the real you and your deep love for each other.
From a technical point of view, we love things clean and straight. In fact, we are more of minimalistic-type people ourselves. Now keep in mind, simple doesn’t automatically mean boring. A minimalistic approach requires careful planning, creativity and an eye for the detail to fill the frame with emotion.
It’s about reducing the sequence to its essentials - to direct the viewers’ eye and create more powerful, and glamorous photographs.
Honestly, there is no short answer to this. We believe our photography style is influenced by a good mix of different photography styles.
We often get asked
Let us capture your engagement session from a second perspective. Aerial photographs are an incredible way to showcase your moments in a unique and artistic way.
We usually recommend adding additional coverage if you want to shoot in multiple locations that require more than 15 minutes of driving.
A perfect proposal requires thorough planning. We help you to find the perfect location, timing and capture your big moment with two photographers.
We love to keep things simple. That's why we offer one engagement collection including up to 1 hour of photography coverage. In our experience that's enough time to capture your true personalities and your love for each other. However, additional hours can be added.
We include all edited high-resolution photographs accessible via an online gallery.
The engagement session location is your choice but we’re more than happy to share our favorite and most photogenic spots. Bring as many outfits as you wish — we usually recommend not more than three — and we’ll take care of the rest.
