1. Do you work with an assistant/second shooter?
I do work with a second shooter. As I shoot lots of film (as well as digital), I need to know there is someone also taking some more digital images in the background. The second shooter can however go to the groom during the getting-ready. And will also capture the pre-drinks for a while as well getting loads of images of your guest during the reception.
2. Do you take table/group shots at the reception?
I like to operate in stealth mode and would rather capture your guests having fun and laughing at the MC’s ridiculous jokes.
But I do try and get photos of most of your guests as I know it is a very important reminder of who got to witness your day!
3. What cameras do you use?
I use Nikon cameras – Nikond300s & Nikond700 with only prime lenses.
I have 2 Nikon film cameras (35mm) as well as a pentax 645n (medium format).
4. How do you edit your photos?
I use Adobe Lightroom to do light processing to your photos – mostly colour, but with a good dash of B&W.
It all looks very natural… and I do try to make sure it matches with the film images
So please make sure you really like my photos before you commit.
I do not use Adobe Photoshop, so will not be editing out any naughty cousins / stuff you no longer
want in your images
5. We love your work and would like to book, how do we do that?
If you are happy with my package, then I will send you a booking form with my banking details for the R4000
The balance is then payable the week before your wedding – but all this and more is on my booking form.
6. How many hours coverage to we need at the wedding?
That all depends on your wedding, if it is a small wedding or you only want photos of the most important parts then 4 hours would be enough. (For Elopements I can quote you on a 2 hour package)
If you have a videographer on the day & you only want a few candids of your
guests at the reception, then 6 hours. Usually my couples then start out with the first dance – if they are doing one.
7. Why is your packages more expensive?
Well, film is expensive and as I also send the film to be processed in the USA it adds to the cost. But if you really want unique and authentic wedding images – that’s real pretty too – then this is for you!
So it is not simply using the same memory cards over and over…
I love it and I hope you will too!
