Shoot Information

Your wedding shoot…

  • Will be exactly what you want it to be. It will be a celebration of your celebration. It will be the moments you want to remember forever. Every moment. As unique as you are.
  • I love to mix reportage, documentary-style and portrait photography with artistic edge and a uniquely personal approach. I love playing with movement and shadows. I love visually expressing the emotion within a moment. Especially at a wedding. This is the place where emotion, movement and moments combine.
  • So, if you want pictures that are less posed and more personal, less styled and more soulful, less ordinary and more arty, then we’ll be a perfect match.

What to Expect

  • I will do my best to fit in with you and blend into your day.
  • I know that some couples prefer to have a short photoshoot so that they can spend more time with family and friends. So all I ask is that I can have approximately half and hour to an hour with you to ensure that we do justice to you and your day.
  • If you are anxious to get back to your guests, it is likely to show in your photos. This is your time; these are your memories. Just relax, have fun and enjoy each others company while I shoot.
  • Some shots will be posed, others less so. Even so-called “natural” shots have some element of posing so there is togetherness in the images. Whatever happens, I have a very relaxed approach, and don’t worry, I won’t make you do anything clichéd.
  • I am at my happiest and most productive when couples allow me creative freedom because they trust and love the way I work and shoot.

Tips for the Shoot

  • This is just a basic run-down for your wedding photography. More details will be included when I mail you my packages.
  • I recommend getting a couple’s (engagement) shoot done several weeks or months leading up to your big day. This is the ideal way for me to get an idea of your likes and dislikes, what makes you both laugh, and what makes you feel relaxed.
  • Steer away from fake-tan unless it’s done professionally. If you’re getting some sun beforehand, try to avoid strap marks as these will show up in your images.
  • Having your “pre-wedding prep”, ceremony and reception in the same area will eliminate the stress of driving around, especially if there are traffic delays or extreme heat. It will also mean more time for photos and less time spent on the road.
  • If your ceremony is outside, check beforehand where you will both be standing when you say your vows. Mottled or uneven light could cast shadows over you, which is unflattering for photos.
  • Consult www.timeanddate.com for time of sunset. The best time for the bride and groom shoot is an hour or so before sunset (a little earlier if near the mountains, as in Paarl, Stellenbosch, or Franschhoek). Midday sunlight in mid-summer is harsh, so avoid this time for group and couple shots.
  • Group shots should be kept to a minimum of around 10 combinations.
