Engagement Portraits

We have Sarah booked for our wedding, but have just had an engagement shoot done with her and oh my goodness, she is amazing. She was so easy to be photographed by, very relaxed, occasionally giving instructions but otherwise just left us to it. She followed us up and down the beach, climbed sank banks with us, the whole shabang. -Sian and Kris

If you're an outdoorsey, relaxed and fun type of person Lucalia Photography is your engagement portrait photographer!


I love creating portraits that help to tell your engagement story. I work with you to find locations that are meaningful to you and reflect your passions and personality.

Couples often ask me if they need an engagement photo session in addition to wedding photography. There are four points to consider. Engagement portraits allow you to get used to the idea of being photographed, before your wedding day. They allow you to become familiar with your photographer (or help choose the right photographer). You can use your photos to announce your engagement or on your save-the-date cards. Above all, these portraits capture the precious moment in time: your engagement.

It gives you an overview of the beautiful heirloom products I offer including books, framed prints and digital images.

You only choose and pay for the photos you love and want to keep for ever (though most people have a hard time choosing just a few!).


2. Book your session

To book your session please choose a time suitable for you from my calendar.


3. Take your photos

We spend an hour or two together capturing your outdoor adventure at a location meaningful to you (or one of my favourites).


4. Viewing session

I come to your home, or we meet at a cafe and you get to see your photos for the first time. I show you some examples of what they could look like on your lounge room wall or in a book. This is when you choose what to purchase.


5. Photo delivery

Your framed prints and books are hand delivered to your home personally by me. Digital images are delivered via download from an online gallery.
