What is your photography style?
My style is best described as “romantic reportage”, my photo’s are full of emotion and beauty, the unexpected and the delightful and a little bit whimsical. I capture moments and not pose people into moments. I try my best to be a fly on the wall so I can capture all the candid moments. During the couple shoot I will provide directions and guidelines and then leave you to interact with each other. After all it will be your first time alone as newlyweds so I am sure you do not want someone to tell you how to be affectionate with your new spouse.
Do you make coffee table albums?
Yes I do! I make them in various sizes. I also have a various range in products, namely, Personalised coffee and travel mugs, puzzles, keyrings, mousepad’s, calendar’s,etc. Please enquire about these products and prices by visiting my contacts page.
Do you hold dates provisionally?
Unfortunately no. I have a number of clients often enquiring about the same date, therefore a 25% deposit of the chosen package is needed, as well as a signed photography agreement will need to be signed to secure date.
What is your dress code?
I wear neutral colours. I dress smart but easy enough to move around. I do not dress to stand out as I want to be a fly on the wall so I can capture all the candid moments.
Do you traveI?
Yes I do travel, in fact I love it. I love to see new places and photograph them. All my wedding packages include a 100km roundtrip thereafter an additional charge of R3.00/km is applicable.
I am based in Fourways Johannesburg and am willing to do weddings around the country and internationally.
Should we feed you?
That would be great! Food gives me energy which I need to get the creative juices flowing throughout the reception
Do you offer a pre-shoot or an engagement shoot?
Yes I do. All my packages include an engagement shoot as it is also a great way to get to see my style and the way I work and to get comfortable – after all I will be spending the whole day with you. It is also a great way to get some pretty photos of you and your Fiancé. You can even use these photo’s for your Save The Date or at the reception.
How long does it take to get our photos after the wedding?
It will take 4 to 8 weeks.
Do you take table/group shots of my guests?
I try to get at least one photo of each guest. I take plenty candid, spontaneous photo’s of all the guests enjoying each other’s conversation, their reactions to the speeches, their crazy dance moves etc. I do not take formal table shots. I do offer photobooth’s as an extra which is a great way to get more photographs of all your guests. This is normally done after all formalities have taken place.
I do take family formals. This is normally after the ceremony and before the couple shoot. This is limited to a maximum of 10 photo’s and not more than 10 people per photo as these photo’s take time to set up and to call all family members for the photo. I am willing to increase this number as long as sufficient timing has been added to the order of events. I will also recommend that a family member is assigned to call all the required family member for the photo’s to save time looking for them.
What do you mean by edited images?
I shoot only with RAW format to get the best quality images. This format has to be edited with a software program (for me it is Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6) I only do colour and exposure correction, as well as remove any marks or blemishes in the photograph. I do not give clients unedited images.
