♥ Will you personally be photographing the wedding or lifestyle session?
Yes. You are hiring me for your special occasion, and not another photographer working under my name. I will bring my lovely assistant with me to weddings to help me carry gear around and giving me the perfect light with the reflector.
♥ How much time do you need for our Wedding collection?
Decor shots: 30 min
(it’s best to do this before I come to you, because by the time I arrive at the reception all the guest will be there, the other option is to photograph this during the time you mingle with the guests. Before your couple photos.)
Groom getting ready: 30-45min
Bride before the ceremony: 1 hour
Ceremony: 30 min – 1 hour
Family & Group shots: 20 min – 30 min
Couple photos: 1 hour +
Reception: This all depends on the collection you choose, latest will be till 9pm after the formalities.
♥ When should we do the wedding portraits?
This is mostly up to you, but usually immediately after the ceremony. Shooting after the ceremony, depending on the time, could allow you to take advantage of the setting sun and its softer light.
♥ Do you take getting-ready photographs?
These are some of my favorite photographs to capture. The energy and excitement of everyone moving about is there, but I can also capture the calm and solemn moments when the bride and groom think about their wedding vows, the friends and family around them, and everything leading up to the big moment.
♥ Do you photograph scenes from the dance floor?
That’s where the fun is. I am right there with everyone on the dance floor like a ninja with camera. A harmless ninja. I usually suggest that all the formalities should be finished at 20h30 so that I can capture those unpredictable twists on the dance floor before I leave at 21h00.
♥ Do you photograph in RAW-format?
Yes. RAW allows me to get the best quality and image detail when I am processing the photos. Because of the high quality format, I do not offer any “un-processed” images.
♥ Do you shoot in Black & White?
I love B&W photographs. There is something so timeless about them. Since I shoot digital, this allows me to decide after the fact, whether I want to process the image in B&W or Color. However, I generally shoot the image with a color preference in mind based on what I am seeing.
♥ How long will your post-processing take?
I love the detail in every color and the sharpness in the eyes. Let me bring out the best of your photos. Lifestyle will be from 3 to 5 weeks and Weddings 6-10 weeks.
♥ Where are you based?
I am based in Cape Town, but if this location isn’t in your neck of the woods, please read the next question.
♥ Do you travel for Weddings or Lifestyle sessions?
Yes, ANYTIME! I love to travel. Rates of R3,50 will start after 75km. All Cape Town clients will get a custom quote with no travel fees.
