Wedding Photography

Getting the most out of your wedding day

Your wedding day is the most special day of your life and shouldn’t be a photoshoot. You should have plenty of time to mingle, to hug friends and family and drink some champagne. That is what I aim to do on your wedding day, keeping each photo as natural and as pose free as possible. There are plenty of special moments on your wedding day and those are the moments I would like to capture.
When it comes to the portraits, take a breath, this is your ‚Äúalone time‚ÄĚ.
I’m just there to document the love, the private jokes, crazy faces and a stolen kiss while walking down the path.
Keep moving so that I can learn how you and your partner interact, this is how we get those relaxed candid couple shots. Each wedding is different and I try and tell each story in a way that’ll suite the couple, their family and the crazy friends. Editing the photos is done in the same way and will be adjusted in a way to tell the story the best.

Some Additional Services

You are welcome to add a second photographer at R 500 per hour, this allow us to capture the moments from multiple angles.

I don't charge for travel to weddings in the Plettenberg Bay and Knysna areas. Any areas outside this area will be R4/km.

When you book a wedding with me your 2 hour engagement shoot will be R1500. Lets take a stroll on Robberg or in the Forest.

Have questions?

If you need additional information about me and how everything works, have a look below.

Where are you located?

Plettenberg Bay, South Africa.

Would you travel to my destination wedding?

For destination weddings I charge for a 15 hour collection and of course my flights, hotel stay and car rental to be able to scout some locations.

Do we have to provide food for you on the wedding day?

Yes please, photographers tend to forget about normal things like eating. For any wedding over five hours this photographer would need something on a plate. I will eat at the same time as your guests, because we all know eating shots aren‚Äôt great. 

How many images do I get?

The amount of images will be determined by your wedding collection that you have selected. The amount of images will be stated in your wedding contract and on your invoice.

Can you change your style for our wedding?

This is quite a big ask, I think most photographers will agree, our style is our signature in a creative world. Changing our styles would be us not being true to ourselves.

What equipment are you using?

I use a Canon 6D (sorry to all my Nikon photographer friends out there). I have a wide range of professional line lenses as well as my favourite Sigma 85mm. I have two camera bodies so your wedding day is covered. 

What are your travel fees ?

R4/km for areas outside of Plettenberg Bay & Knysna. Should I require flights,  accommodation or car rental this will be added to the invoice after you have approved it.

How do we confirm our booking?

To make sure your day is booked, I require a 50% deposit. I will also send you a wedding contract that will explain everything in detail. 

What is your approach to photography ?

There are plenty of special moments on your wedding day and those are the moments I would like to photograph in a natural and relaxed way.

Do I get the digital files ?

Yes you do, I will courier your edited images on a USB stick to your address.

When will we receive our photos?

Typically you will start seeing your images within 3 months from your wedding day. Possibly sooner, it  just depends on the time of year. Wedding season madness happens from October to February. I will however try and get a batch of images to you as soon as I possibly can to share with family and friends.

We want a replicate an image we saw on Pinterest!

I would love to see what you like, this is definitely a great way in getting to know you as a couple and also what you would be open to do. However I wouldn’t like to copy anyone else’s work so please don’t expect me to.
