Engagement Photoshoots

Engagements, Couple Sessions & Secret Proposals

What is an engagement photoshoot? In its essence, it is an informal pre-wedding photoshoot. Having your photo taken is a bit of a strange experience, but it is something you can tackle before your wedding. It takes a few minutes to get used to the idea of your photographer following you around with their camera.

These sessions can help with getting used to being in front of the camera and getting to know your photographer better before your big day. It also gives you a chance to experiment with poses and preselect them for wedding posing.

In case you don’t have Arlukova Studios services booked for your wedding, don’t worry – you can certainly book a session separately. Engagement photoshoots became really popular in the last few years for a number of reasons.

Why book an engagement shoot?

  • A lot of couples choose to use the final images for wedding invites, save-the-dates, wedding décor or a guestbook. Variety of printed products are available on request.
  • Engagement session with your professional wedding photographer before the big day gives you a clear idea of what to expect on your wedding.
  • With an engagement sessions you’ll have a set of professional photos quickly – be it for engagement announcement, your wedding invitations or social media.
  • Engagement shoots make great presents for newly engaged couples. Couple sessions work the same way and make amazing anniversary gifts.

Capture the ‘Yes!’

If you’d like to surprise your partner with a proposal, Arlukova Studios offers confidential service and organization of secret proposals. While some couples prefer to have a private engagement, other like to have photos of the special moment. In that case hiring a secret engagement photographer might be the right choice for you.

How is secret proposal photography different from engagement photography?

Proposal photography is the art of capturing a marriage proposal in the moment. Meanwhile, engagement photography is portraiture of to-be-weds. The main difference is the element of surprise. While for engagement sessions, usually, both partners are aware of the photoshoot beforehand, the secret proposals start with one of the partners not knowing that the important day is today! After the main question and capture of that moment, the session will proceed in the same manner as an engagement photoshoot – the photographer will take you around the location, capturing photos of you that you can use for wedding invitations and many other ways.

Couple Photography

Couple photography is not much different from an engagement photoshoot. These sessions are a way to celebrate anniversaries or just update your family portrait wall. Same as the rest of the services, these shoots take place at your chosen location. These make great anniversary presents and other personal milestones.


All of the above sessions come at different price points, depending on location and duration of the shoot. Arlukova Studios recommends a pre-made package to cover all your basics. This package is designed to capture a variety of photos at the competitive price and you can customize it to your needs as you desire.
