Engagement Sessions

Engagement Sessions are a great way to try us out before the wedding :) If we are photographing your wedding, we waive our session fee as long as we can schedule the shoot for 3 or more months before your wedding.

If you haven’t decided on a photographer yet and you wanted to try us out before booking, we offer a no-obligation, complimentary 20 min session at our studio in Hammonds Plains.


When Alex and Kate shared our enthusiasm for an e-session at McNab’s Island, we knew we had made the right choice. We were so impressed by their commitment to making this shoot happen - from waiting for the perfect day, to trudging around the island with their gear to capture every last ray of a beautiful Halifax sunset. Their professionalism instilled confidence and comfort at the shoot, and their artistic vision is astounding. Alex and Kate were a perfect fit for us, and the results were more beautiful than anything we could have imagined. We can’t say enough!

Step 2

The Shoot

Kate and Alex will spend an hour or a little more with you on location. For location shoots we like to have at least a couple of locations - think downtown Halifax and Point Pleasant park for example. If you are coming to our studio, we can do some fun setups in the studio and we can go outside for variety.

Questions:

How does it work?

We’ll schedule your session at a time that’s convenient and usually about an hour before sunset. Within 10-days of the shoot, we will have you out to our studio to review your finished images at our studio. You can choose from many options including: prints, gallery canvas, and our very popular Italian-made, signature guest books. If you are only in town for a short visit, we can have your viewing in as little as 12 hours from the shoot.

Does the session include files or prints?

The session does not include any files or other products. We purposely keep our session fee low to make it easy for couples to try us out. You’re under no obligation to purchase a thing. We hope that you like your images enough to invest but don’t worry about any sales pressure after the session - we’re not into that :)

What about taxes?

We do have to add 15% HST to all our prices - sorry :(

How much does it cost?

If we are shooting your wedding and you book your session more than 3 months from your wedding date, we’ll waive our session fee. If we are not shooting your wedding - we can still offer a quick ‘get to know you’ engagement session at our studio at no cost as long as it’s scheduled for 3 or more months before the wedding.

Do you travel?

We do! For sessions that are outside a 30km radius of Peninsular Halifax, there is a travel fee of $0.75 per km each way.

We’re in! What’s the next step?
