50+ Highly Recommended Engagement Photographers in NSW

engagement photographers nsw

Professional engagement photography is a service offered by wedding photographers that provides an opportunity to work with them before the wedding. Engagement shoots usually include a 1.5 - 3 hour photo session and deliver a set of couple portraits to keep. An engagement photographer in NSW costs between $500 - $2,950 and a discount is sometimes offered when a wedding photography package is also booked. 

Which engagement photographer to choose comes down to the type of photo shoot a couple would prefer to have, and the style of images preferred. For a traditional engagement shoot most couples head to a local park or beach and their photographer produces a set of images for the wall at home or for use on wedding websites, stationery and signage.

In NSW, engagement photographers offer a few additional options. Adventure shoots enable couples to hike, ski or swim to a meaningful location for a collection of unique candid portraits doing what they love. Also becoming more popular are intimate engagement shoots which are often photographed in the couple's own lounge or bedroom. 

A pre-wedding photography session should be a fun experience that provides images you love. Equally important, an engagement shoot is an excellent way to get to know and establish trust with your wedding photographer before your big day. The better they know you, the better they can tell your story. The better you know them, the more relaxed you’ll be in front of their lens on your wedding day. 

Here’s a list of our most recommended engagement photographers in NSW.
