While it can be a happy time, getting engaged can also be a little overwhelming. Don’t worry, we can help.
Here are some tips on what to do first.
What to do First
Take Time to be Happy
Don’t feel pressured to announce it or make decisions immediately.
Announce to those closest to you first
Let your family know in person or with a video call before you announce it to the world. When your VIPs know, then you can post on social media.
Plan an engagement party – if you want one
People will want to celebrate with you. It’s a great way to celebrate with everyone together.
Think about your wedding timeline
People will ask if you have picked a date, mainly for conversation. But again, you don’t have to make decisions immediately. You do need to talk as a couple; and be on the same page.
You don’t have to lock down any plans until you’re ready, but it’s a good idea to gather ideas. Check out wedding websites, magazines, social media etc.
Get engagement photos
What better way to announce your engagement and celebrate your love? It’s a life milestone you’ll want to remember!
What is Engagement Photography?
Simply put, its a photography session that focuses on you as a couple. Our natural engagement photography shows emotion, connection and affection between you.
You can even use the images for save the date cards, to display at your wedding reception, and my personal favourite reason; to get to know your wedding photographer.
What Happens at a Natural Engagement Session?
Natural engagement photography is your story and your family legacy. It’s how I see your story through my lens. It is authentic and showcases emotion, connection, affection and most of all your unique personalities.
I take a lifestyle and documentary approach. Ensuring wall-worthy family portraits. But also having fun and making memories in the process. It’s deeper and more personal than your classic portraits.
Imagine in 10 years when you bring out your family albums and tell your story. Feeling nostalgic about the crazy, mucky, woodland photoshoot.

Why is Photography Important?
I’ve read that children feel safe, welcome, seen and loved if there are images of themselves in the family home. I love this idea and think this is something every family needs to know.
You see stories, memories and keepsakes are important. Life is short. Our humanity is what makes us beautiful. The light will never look or be seen the same again and neither will we. We will never have this moment again.
So, let’s capture it!
