Do you travel for weddings?
Yes, I am willing to travel internationally and locally. The traveling fees will be included in the initial quote I send you, which will be altered to your wedding’s specifications. For local weddings, I include 120km’s in the package price.
Do our wedding photos get watermarked?
No they do not. Watermarking (my watermark being the my logo or name ) is only for blogging purposes.
Do you work with an assistant/second photographer?
Yes I do. Having a helping hand allows me to work more efficiently, and to focus on making the most of our shooting time. On the wedding day there will be two of us, please keep this in mind when making your meal reservations. Thanks
How do we go about booking you/the date?
Please fill in the Enquiry form on the “Contact” page. We can arrange a meeting over a cup of coffee and we’ll discuss all the details of your big day. After signing the booking contract I will send you, a Non-refundable 50% deposit will ensure your date is secured.
How long will we wait for our wedding photos?
Generally 4-6 weeks. During peak season it might take a little bit longer but max 8 weeks.
Do you offer Photo books?
Yes I do. Please email me for sample photos and prices. This service is only available to clients whose weddings I have photographed.
If we get married in winter i.e June, July or August do we receive a discount on packages?
Unfortunately I don’t, as I spend the same amount of my time, energy and love into a wedding, regardless of the day or time of the year.
How Much time do you need for photos?
It all depends on how you and how you would like to structure your day of course, but here is a rough guideline I normally use:
30-45min – venue/décor (Usually I shoot this before I go to the bride.)
40min – makeup & accessories
20min – getting dressed
60min – bridal shoot/ mother of the bride/ bridesmaids
20min – groom and his men
30-60min – ceremony (depends on the length of the ceremony)
20min – register and confetti
25-40min – family photos
25min – bridal party
60-90min – couple shoot
2hr – 4hr – reception (It depends on the amount of formalities)
What is the golden hour and should I plan my shoot around it?
The golden hour is the time just after sunrise, or just before sunset- which provides gorgeous warm, soft, romantic light for photos. The golden hour is any photographer’s dream light to shoot in. So weather permitting, try and plan your couple shoot session around it, you won’t regret it!
(If you get married in Constantia, Montagu, Riebeek Kasteel/Wes or Tulbagh (South Africa) you should consider the mountains because the sun will set there earlier.)
What can I do to ensure beautiful photographs?
Have fun and be yourself.
Light is a photographers best friend, and choosing a venue that has lots of natural light (or a white ceiling) means that I can easily give you the great shots you want.
When having an outside ceremony remember to face away from the sun, or at least have some covering for your faces so that you don’t get those not so flattering frowning face shots caused by looking into the sun.
