GENERAL INFO

How would you describe your style?
We love to shoot things as they happen, in the moment. We love to tell the story at a wedding or lifestyle shoot. The excitement, expressions and true heart-felt moments that life’s made up of is what drives us.

What types of photography do you offer?
We specialize in wedding and lifestyle photography, but also do other photography, like corporate or magazine work, on request.

Where are you based and do you travel?
We are based in Johannesburg, but we’re happy to travel all across the country to capture your amazing day. We’ll even get on a plane and join you in another country if you’re doing a destination wedding.

Do I need to pay a deposit to book a shoot?
Yes, to confirm any shoot, we require a 50% deposit to secure the date and package you have chosen

Can we meet up before booking you?
Sure, give us a shout and let’s have a coffee and a chat, at a convenient time for all of us.

What equipment do you use?
We use the latest pro gear from Fujifilm and shoot on prime lenses for the best quality images. We always have backup equipment on hand as well.

Do you edit your images?
We do select editing on all our photos to enhance the images, but we do not over-edit our work. Keeping it natural, but beautiful and timeless is what we’re all about.

 

WEDDINGS

How many hours of coverage do you give?
Our basic package consists of 8 hours of coverage, but with the rest of our packages, we don’t include any set hours on our weddings, as we feel that we should dedicate that entire day to you. We are normally there from the time you start getting ready to after all the formalities have been done. Start to finish, we’ll be there for you!

What is the best time of day to plan our couple session?
The best time for your couple session is an hour before sunset, as we get the best quality and softest light then.

How long do we need for all the photos on the day of the wedding?
After the ceremony, we’ll need 15-20 minutes for family photos, 20-25 minutes for your entourage and around 45-60 minutes for your couple session.

How far in advance should we book?
We accept bookings 6-12 months in advance. The earlier you book the better, as we only do a limited amount of weddings per year and especially during peak season, dates get filled up quite quickly.

Can I give you a list of photos I like?
You are more than welcome to give us some photos that we can use for inspiration, but we won’t replicate these shots exactly, as we’d rather shoot everything we see in a natural way, capturing the emotion and feel of the day, instead of working from a specific list.

How many family photos do you take? 
We like to focus on immediate family for the family photos, as not to use up too much time, that we'd rather use for your couple session. We do take natural shots of your guests throughout the day.

Can we have table shots?
We prefer to not do table shots as this limits the time we have available to capture natural moments throughout the reception of your guests. 

Do you do a photo-booth?
Yes you can book a photo-booth with us as an optional extra. We have someone taking photos at the booth throughout the reception, and have a whole bunch of cool and funny props to use.

How many final images will I receive?
We don’t put a certain number on the amount of images we give our clients, but every awesome image we get, you'll get! You'll always get at least 5oo photos though.

Do you provide black and white images?
Being digital, we photograph in colour, but during the editing process we will do some black and white conversions on select images as well.

Can we get our RAW files?
No, unfortunately we can’t hand over raw files, as it’s like handing over an unfinished painting.

Do you shoot video?
We specialize in photography only, but we have a preferred cinematographer that we work with, which we can recommend to you, if needed.

How long will it take to get my images?
We work on a completion time of around 8 weeks, but we always aim to make that time shorter, if possible.

How long does it take to get my album?
It takes around 3 weeks after the design has been approved.

How do we receive our photos?
You will receive all your high-resolution images without a watermark as well as low-res images for social sharing, with watermarks on a USB stick, along with the rest of your wedding package.

How will my photos and album be delivered?
We prefer couples to come and pick up their photos and album themselves. That way we can make sure that you receive your package in good condition. Albums can be couriered to you at an extra charge.

What if you’re sick on our wedding day?
We would have to be close to dying before we miss a wedding, but in the highly unfortunate event that we can’t be there, we'll send a competent professional photographer in our place. We would still do the editing and put the album together for you.

What are your travel costs?
With weddings the first 100 km on the round-trip is included. Thereafter it’s R4 per km.
Accommodation is normally required for weddings more than 120 km from Johannesburg.

How does copyright work?
We retain copyright on all images for commercial purposes. You are welcome to use them for competitions, etc. We do retain the right to publish all wedding photos on our website, advertising mediums, magazines, etc. If there are certain photos you’d prefer not to be shown on the internet, let us know and we can accommodate that with pleasure.
