Frequently Asked Questions
How many images do you include?
I deliver a minimum of 50 images per hour. However, I promise to always include plenty of images of everything I capture. I don’t like to give a cut-off number because I don’t believe in withholding any images from you to get you to pay more like some photographers do.
These are your memories, I promise to capture them fully and give you more than enough images to remember this time in your lives.
What is your turnaround time?
For weddings it takes 6-8 weeks or less and for photo sessions it takes around 1-2 weeks. I try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure I give time to each and every image’s needs.
Do you give raw/unedited images
No, I believe that editing is half of the beauty that goes into images and delivering unedited images is not up to my standard. I promise to never leave out images that I think may be important to you!
If you feel that something is missing, please do ask! I’ll be more than happy to check through my images.
How do your payments work?
Weddings: I require a 50% booking fee at the time of booking to secure your spot, the remainder is due 1 month prior to the wedding.
Other photo sessions: I require a 50% booking fee at the time of booking to secure your spot and the remainder is due on the day of the shoot.
Can you photoshop us to make us thinner, etc?
No, I believe in promoting a positive body image and self-love. I will remove temporary blemishes such as pimples, scars, bruises, etc as best as I can. If there is something that you are especially self-conscious about, please let me know and I will do my best to take note and remember while I am posing you.
What if we need to cancel or reschedule our shoot or wedding?
If you’d like to reschedule, please note that my booking fee is legally non-refundable, however, if I am available for your new date I would be happy to reschedule. As for cancellations, the booking fee is unfortunately legally non-refundable.
What happens if you can’t make it to our wedding?
Heaven forbid this happens! It would only be because of something out of my control (act of god, illness, death, etc). I would do my very best to find a replacement photographer who I trust and that has a similar style, although I am not legally held to do so. If I can’t make it and cannot find a suitable replacement, your money will be refunded.
If we are outside of Cape Town, can we book you and how do travel expenses work?
Yes, I love to travel for weddings! I charge an extra 15% on each package for out of town weddings. I also require you to cover flight, accommodation and rental car/ travel expenses. I am open to staying with you or your family, and trying to budget expenses wherever we can! I do, however, require that any accommodation be safe and somewhat comfortable! For booking, I’ll book my own flights and rental car. You are welcome to book accommodation if need be. I will be sure to confirm all prices and logistics with you before I go ahead and book.
Do you offer discounts?
Unfortunately not, unless I am running a promotion.
