Stefen Charles Photography | Engagement & Portrait Shoots


Memories are Special.

My engagement & portrait shoots are predominantly location shoots.  I can photograph you at either a park/woods, Gardens or beaches, or any local place that may mean something to you.  I prefer the natural outdoor light to produce soft compositions rather than the white backdrops that have become vogue in resent years, and I feel that for families, the children are much more relaxed in these kinds of environments, as are those who do not like their photograph taken and can relax in a natural atmosphere rather than sitting on a white backdrop staring at the camera.  
These sessions can be a lot of fun and we can capture the best from everyone and hopefully you can come away with something different to everyone else, personal to you which will be treasured for a lifetime.

Dressing for these sessions depends entirely on what you wish to achieve and portray in your images, be it simple and casual or dressed up to look glam.  Whatever you decide, it is better to keep to solid colours, and to avoid too many patterns if there is a family group.  This will keep the focus on you and not on your attire.  Also, remember that if one member of the family is in a particularly bright colour, (sometimes even white) they may stand out more than the other members.  

Accessories look fantastic in photographs, so please bring along hats, umbrellas, jewellery and any other sentimental things the children may feel are special.

Portrait sessions last between 60-90 minutes.

How Much does it Cost?  

The cost of the session is £50 in advance.  This is basically a booking fee to confirm and guarantee your chosen date time and location.

We keep the cost low and do not include so called "freebies", We place all your edited images in a password protected gallery on my website so that you can review and order the images in the sizes that you really want, not only the ones we tell you the have.

Photobook shoot - £99 

This package will really give your family and friends something to admire and talk about. “Take a photo - Save a memory”; “Have a Photobook - tell a story”.

A 90 min shoot for you or you and your partner/friend includes a 21x28cm, 26 page Photobook with lustre photographic pages which can include between 26 and 40 of your favourite images from the shoot.  You can order additional pages in sets of 8 which will hold an additional 8 -21 images at £10 per 8 pages.










How does it Work?  

At you shoot, you will be given a link to your private, password protected online viewing & ordering gallery. Once there you can view all the edited images from the shoot and make your selection as to which ones you wish to purchase either as a print, in many sizes and paper choices as well as canvases, or as a digital download so you can post to social media or print wherever and whenever you wish as many times as you wish.  There is also a selection of other products from acrylic prints to mouse mats to t-shirts to cups and key rings.
