How do you photograph weddings?

I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day. I'll send you a guide to help you organizing your day, the best moments for the couple photos, the different lights... and it's really exciting for me to receive photos of your dress, shoes, invites...! On your wedding day, all I want to capture is the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make your wedding unique. That's why I decided to become a documentary storyteller to capture those real authentic moments.

Do you document Elopements?

I absolutely enjoy the idea of having an intimate wedding with either just the two of you or with some close family. I'm definitely working on doing more and more elopements! My rates depends on where the wedding elopement will be, how many hours you would like to book and what you want to include in your collection.
For this I will send you a quotation accordingly.

Elopement photography quoted at R2000 per hour.

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm originally from Cape Town, SA but currently in Ireland and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel & accommodation fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I am not one for luxurious travel - as long as I'm safe I don't mind the way to the destination.

When will we get our photos?

Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum 12 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them on social media. Regards to the higher resolution, for wedding I usually supply all the images on a branded usb along with beautiful handcrafted packaging.

For lifestyle, I usually supply all images in low & high resolution via an online gallery for you to download.

How many pictures will we receive?

Depending on the package you choose, the starting collections for weddings, you will receive 300+ images. I will always give more than what is stated in the collection!

For lifestyle session, it all depends, but usually I will give 50+ images.

Do you have a second shooter?

No, I find that I am capable to shoot an entire wedding by myself, as long as there's enough time given to me during the day, especially when I have to drive to different getting ready locations.

Should you really want me to have a second shooter on the day, I will hire a professional photographer to join me. The cost will be between R1500 and R4000 per day, depending on the hours.

Do you have an assistant?

Yes. I will in some cases, bring along a second hand to help me with my gear and whatever is stated in the photography agreement, would then be eligible for him/her too.

Do you travel overseas?

In 2018 we had the privilege to travel to Bali, and in 2019 and 2021 I went to Ireland for a proper holiday season. Travel has definitely become my next big thing!

Do you have any makeup artists you can recommend?

YES!! Please head over and go follow their beautiful work!
