Frequently Asked Questions
This is something I hear on a daily and yes, it is totally okay! I try my best to make the situation as comfortable as possible by giving direction, playing your favourite music and creating a calm atmosphere. This is the main reason why I include engagement sessions in my packages, so I can see how comfortable you guys are and what prompts and direction suits you and your relationship best!
I want to make this process as easy as possible, so to book me for your wedding day it’s a R7000 booking fee and a signed contract to secure your date. Yay!
Yes and no. Sometimes clients just want to book as soon as possible and discuss everything over email, Zoom or a phone call where others want an in-person meeting. This is completely up to your preference, our schedules and my location at that time. I do however like the idea of seeing your faces before the big day- even if it is over a video call!
When it comes to products like albums, prints or slideshows we can definitely add that later, but with our Photobooth services, a second shooter or an additional assistant I would have to arrange that in advance and can’t add that last minute.
When I shoot at a venue that I’ve not shot at before I arrive 30-minutes early to scout the locations and visualize where we can shoot what. I don’t think it makes a difference if I haven’t shot there since every wedding is different and shot at different times of the year. If I’m uncertain about a venue, I’ll go on social media and find inspiration or particular spots that I like.
Some people don’t want to share their entire wedding album with the world and I completely respect that. In our contract there is a box where you can tick if I’m allowed and where I’m allowed to share your photos. If you’re fine with me posting your wedding photos, but just don’t want certain photos to be shared online please let me know in advance. For example, photos of kids at wedding.
Although this has never happened before (touch wood), life happens and sometimes situations are uncontrollable. I can assure you that I’ll do everything in my power to get you the perfect photographer for your big day. This is your day and the last thing I want you to worry about is your day being beautifully captured, so I’ll take full responsibility of the situation.
Scheduling a wedding can be difficult, sticking to those scheduled times can be even worse. I almost always stay an extra 15 minutes after our contracted time but if the schedule runs a bit late, I will ask you if you would like to extend our scheduled time. If you would like for me to stay longer, it will cost you an additional R1000/hour as more photos will be taken and this results in more time editing.
If you enquire with me, I really want you to be certain that you like my photos and my editing style. As my style is semi-documentary, I’d like to think that I capture the moments that you aren’t always aware of. You can expect photos of every aspect of your big day, but I want to emphasize that my photos reflect how it felt in that moment! My editing is based on the true lighting on the day as well as natural skin tones.
