WHAT IS YOUR PRICING AND HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

Rates vary according to the type of wedding or photoshoot. Drop me an email HERE, and we can set up a time to talk about what you are looking for and send you my rates and packages. I promise to respond ASAP, and look forward to chatting further!

Once we have been in touch and you want to book, all I require is a retainer fee and a signed digital contract to secure your date. I book my weddings on first come first serve basis.

DO YOU TRAVEL?

Yes, I will travel anywhere and everywhere. I am originally from South Africa, but am now based in Southern Oregon.  I love traveling up and down the gorgeous West Coast, and do most of my shoots throughout Oregon and Northern California. There is so much amazing scenery around us which can make for a pretty spectacular shoot.

HOW QUICKLY WILL WE GET OUR PHOTOS BACK?

Turn around time for a wedding during peak season is up to 6 weeks.  I always send through a sneak-peak within a week. For portrait sessions you will receive your images 1-2 weeks after the session.

 

#6

after the wedding HOW WILL WE GET OUR PHOTOS, AND HOW MANY WILL WE GET?

You'll get a customized personal online gallery with your edited high-resolution images. This gallery can be shared with your family and friends, where you can all download, share, or order prints and albums as you wish. I deliver between 50-80 images per hour of coverage, so for an 8 hour wedding, you should expect to receive 400-600. For an hour family shoot you will receive 30 images, with the option to purchase additional images.

 

#9

DO YOU OFFER PRINTS AND ALBUMS?

Yes. Prints have presence and I highly recommend printing your images from the shoot. The digital world has changed how we use photos. For one, they now live all over the place – Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, Google Drive..., you name it. But will these platforms be around forever? Please don’t assume so. Technology changes so quickly.  I have a huge selection of different print options which can be ordered directly off the online gallery and will be delivered straight to your door.

are there any Tips on How to make our images turn out better for our wedding

To take beautiful photographs there is one element that is essential to my photography and that is light. As a wedding photographer I am always prepared to shoot in all situations but, I definitely prefer to shoot with natural light and my style and colors come from shooting in natural, beautiful light. When choosing your venue, your ceremony, the time of day and where you are getting dressed make sure there is lots of light and consider the time of day. Getting married outside during midday will not be visually pleasing for your photographs. During the evening make sure there is enough ambient lighting. This adds to the atmosphere of the evening but it helps me to create magical shots of your guests. Consider fairy lights, fill lights, spot lights, disco lights, lanterns, candles or even cafe lights - It will make a huge difference.

How long do I need for photographs on the big day?

I ask brides and grooms to be to come up with a rough schedule before even booking with me so that they can have an idea of what the day will look like and how many hours they will me to be there. I normally recommend 45 min to an hour for family formals, bridal party portraits and couple portraits, but please remember that this depends on the size of the family and bridal party. I also love to spend 10-15 minutes with my couple during golden hour to get a few more beautiful couple shots.
