asked questions

WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?

FOR WEDDINGS I REQUIRE BETWEEN 6 – 8 WEEKS TO EDIT ALL YOUR IMAGES. FOR LIFESTYLE SESSIONS, I TAKE 7 – 14 DAYS TO EDIT ALL YOUR IMAGES. AS MUCH AS I TRY TO GET THE IMAGES TO YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, I AM CAREFUL TO GIVE EACH IMAGE THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL AS IT REQUIRES.

HOW MANY IMAGES DO WE RECEIVE?

WITH EACH COLLECTION (FOR WEDDINGS AND LIFESTYLE SESSIONS), I HAVE LISTED A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF IMAGES THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE. THESE ARE YOUR IMAGES SO I TRY TO GIVE AS MANY GREAT IMAGES AS TAKEN IN THE SESSION, SOMETIMES EXCEEDING THE MAXIMUM IMAGES LISTED. IF IT ADDS TO THE STORY, I’LL INCLUDE IT IN YOUR FINAL DELIVERY!

ARE YOU HAPPY TO TRAVEL TO SHOOT OUR WEDDING?

YES, DEFINITELY! I AM AN EXPLORER AT HEART, SO I LOVE BEING IN NEW DESTINATIONS, LOCAL OR INTERNATIONAL. PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO REQUIRE FOR ALL TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION EXPENSES TO BE PROVIDED UNLESS A PERSONAL AGREEMENT HAS BEEN MADE BETWEEN US.
I AM BASED IN THE SOUTHERN SUBURBS OF CAPE TOWN, SO I TRAVEL FOR FREE IN A RADIUS OF 50KM OUTSIDE OF CAPE TOWN CBD. ANYTHING OVER THAT, IS CALCULATED AT A PER/KM RATE.

DO YOU GIVE RAW IMAGES?

NO, I DON’T. AS A PHOTOGRAPHER AND ARTIST, A BIG PART OF THE FINAL PRODUCT YOU SEE IS THE EDITING PROCESS, WHICH IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE CAPTURING. I WON’T LEAVE OUT ANY IMAGES THAT MAY BE IMPORTANT TO YOU, SO IF YOU FEEL THAT YOU ARE MISSING ANYTHING, PLEASE DO LET ME KNOW.

HOW DO PAYMENTS WORK?

FOR BOTH WEDDINGS AND LIFESTYLE SESSIONS, I REQUIRE A 50% NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT AND SIGNED CONTRACT TO SECURE YOUR BOOKING DATE. THEREAFTER, THE REMAINING BALANCE IS DUE WITHIN A WEEK OF YOUR SESSION DATE.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?

I TAKE BOOKINGS A YEAR IN ADVANCE. IN HIGH WEDDING SEASONS, I TEND TO GET BOOKED PRETTY QUICKLY, SO I WOULD RECOMMEND BOOKING AT LEAST   4 – 6 MONTHS IN ADVANCE FOR POPULAR DATES. FOR LIFESTYLE SESSIONS, IT’S BEST TO BOOK A MONTH IN ADVANCE.
