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.
