A Signature Book tells your story, and collects new ones.

A Signature Book at your wedding lets you reveal your engagement photos, and offers friends and family a special space to sign. Your hard-cover book will be custom-designed in-house leaving lots of space for messages; then printed and bound in Italy.

Gallery wrapped canvas is art for your home.

Engagement sessions allow time for us to work with you to create dramatic and artistic images that make a great addition to your home's decor.

Alex and Kate were a perfect fit for us.
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....and the results were more beautiful than anything we could have imagined.

Why book an engagement session?
These photos capture the two of you on location together, in a casual setting - or a setting close to home if you're planning a destination wedding. It's a great opportunity to get to know your photography team before your event. Combined into a Signature Book, these photos offer the perfect backdrop to collect best wishes from your wedding guests. The casual, intimate imagery looks great as a canvas in your home (less formal than a wedding image). And while we call it an "engagement" session, we love photographing any couple at any age that just enjoys being together.

What should we wear?
Show off your personal style, but maybe rev it up a notch. If you're a jeans and t-shirt kinda couple, wear jeans, throw in a fun pair of boots or high heels, and pick out the cutest t-shirt you can find. A sports jacket and dress can make for a cool his & her look too. Hats are always fun and we love it when people bring props. We also recommend a quick outfit change somewhere in the middle of the session for a more varied collection of images.

What will it cost?
If we're photographing your wedding and you schedule this session more than 6 months prior, we'll waive the $300 session fee. At your full-screen Ordering Session in our studio, you'll be able to shop albums, canvases, stationery, custom-framing and reprints a-lacarte; plus we have Collections Options including all three starting at $650. More details are available in our Engagement Pricing brochure: contact us for a printed or online copy.

How long does it take?
We always shoot on location, keeping things fun, informal and spontaneous. The shoot itself will take about one hour. Then we'll be ready to bring you into our studio for your Ordering Session within 2 weeks. If you're only in town for a few days, we'll try our best to have your images ready to view before you leave. Signature Books are custom-designed and printed, and require at least 6 weeks from the order date to be finished. So let us know as soon as possible!
