Ask Your Wedding Photographer
Booking a wedding photographer is often a new experience for you, the bridal couple, and most of the time there are many questions you may have, so I complied this list of frequently asked questions to assist you.
Q: Do you travel for weddings?
A: Definitely! Traveling is one of my passions, so whether its locally or internationally, consider my bags packed.
Q: How much do you charge for travel?
A: I do not charge a travel fee for Durban weddings and if your wedding is booked at a venue further than 60km from Durban, I will be quote a travel fee and accommodation.
Q: Do you have an assistant photographer?
A: Yes, depending on the size of the wedding I may employ the help of a second shooter for the day. This second shooter is normally a professional photographer whom I trust and have worked with man times before.
Q: Do we receive the high resolution digital images?
A: Yes, You will receive all your wedding photographs as a high resolution digital image.

A: Absolutely! I will hold onto your wedding photos for a few years if not forever.
Q: Can we get the Raw files?
A: No. Post editing is an important part of creating what I call “my style” and therefore any photograph that has not been post edited is considered to me as incomplete.

A: You should receive the link to your online gallery within 6-8 weeks after your wedding.
Q: How does it work when it comes to photo books and albums?

Q: What happens if we should cancel?
A: If the cancellation is done with 14 days of your booking you will get a full refund. Thereafter a 50% cancellation fee will apply.
Q: What advice can you give us when it comes to being in front of the camera.
A: The best moments are usually captured when you are relaxed and just being yourself. Your wedding day is such a special day filled with many stunning moments. My advice would be pretend that I am not there and just live your best day. Take every moment in. Just be real and relaxed and let me capture your experience.
