I’d Choose You
I’d choose you in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you
If there is one thing I have learned over the last 6 years of being a Wedding Photographer, is that every story is unique.
My only desire is to photograph your wedding day in the most beautiful and natural way, to give you timeless images filled with love and joy that you can treasure for a lifetime.

A moment unprinted is a memory lost
I firmly believe that in the digital age we live in our memories become lost and forgotten.
By printing our memories we immortalise them
Suddenly they become something tangible, they have substance and meaning
I have a range of products for you to invest in, whether it be for your home or for your family to make your memories last a lifetime.
Our fine art albums start at R4,500.
Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! No distance is too far! I’ve been fortunate to capture Weddings in the most beautiful locations including Our beautiful South Africa, Botswana, England, Zanzibar, and South of France
How far in advance do you typically book weddings?
Anything between 1-12 Months in advance especially for peak seasons so make sure you book in advance as I only take on a limited amount of wedding throughout the year!
How do I make a booking?
1. Get in touch with me with the details of your day and to check my availability
2. If I’m available I will send you the details of my packages for you to consider
3. Once you’re ready to book, you can fill in an online booking form (the booking form link is available at the bottom of my packages)
4. You will receive a confirmation from me as well as your invoice in order for you to pay your booking fee
5. You will need to pay a 50% non-refundable booking fee to secure your date, once I have that I will confirm your date!
6. That’s it! Once that’s done I can send your more information to help you plan your special day and I’m all yours!
Do you work with an assistant?
Yes, I prefer to work with an assistant and you are welcome to book a second shooter should you wish!
Do we need to meet before the wedding?
Not necessarily! But I’m happy to meet my clients before their day if it makes them feel more comfortable!
Where do we usually meet?
Close to my office in North Riding, Johanessburg, Gauteng or on skype for International clients!
What photographic equipment do you use? Do you have a backup?
I Shoot with Canon simply out of personal preference; I believe a beautiful image has more to do with the person behind the Camera than the equipment itself.
And yes! I always have a backup!
Do you use extra lighting equipment?
I try and shoot with natural light wherever possible as nothing beats its quality, however where there is not enough light I will use my flash or LED lights.
How much time do I need for taking photos?
I can gladly help you plan your timeline for your day and once you confirm your booking I can send you my Wedding-Planner guide! Until then you can take the following times into consideration in order for me to have enough time to capture everything for you!
Décor: 30-45mins (This needs to be ready to be photographed before I come to the bride)
Bride Details & before the Deremony: +/- 45 min
Brides Getting Dressed: +/- 30min
Bridal Portraits: +/- 30min
Groom Details & Getting Dressed: +/- 30min
Groom Portraits: +/- 30min
Ceremony: 45 min to 1 hour
Mingle & Relax with your guests: 15-30 min
Family and Bridal Party: 20 to 30 min
Couple photos: 1 hour
Reception: Depends on the amount of time left. I would suggest cutting your cake and doing all your formalities early in the evening so afterwards you can relax and just enjoy yourselves.
What is the best time of day for our photos?
The best light is an hour before sunset for your couple photos – to see when the sun sets on your day visit – Timeanddate.com
Do we have to provide you with a meal?
Yes please! We do require seating for two as well as a meal. If you are having a cash bar I ask if you could kindly organize refreshments for us as well.
Can you take group shots of people at their tables?
Unfortunately not, I specialize in natural candid moments so I take photos of your guests throughout the evening as they listen to your speeches, laugh and enjoy themselves. If you would like photos of all your guests then I suggest organising a photobooth!
Can you remove my double chin, mole, add a flower, nicer sky etc?
I always like to make sure my clients look incredible on their wedding day, especially the Bride!
However I still try and keep my editing as natural and real as possible and rather pose you correctly to avoid the double chins etc.
However if there is anything distracting in the image I will remove it!
Any requests for advanced retouching is charged at R50/image
How long will it be before we can see our photos?
Because of the amount of work that goes into your images it will take between 8-12 weeks before they will be ready depending on how busy we are. Albums will be ready only after images have been selected and the design approved which can be an additional 2-4 weeks for printing.
What is your cancellation policy?
If you request a change in date, the booking fee is transferable and prices are still guaranteed depending on my availability for the new date and as long as the new date is within one year from the original booking and the request is received 30 days from the original date. If the new date is more than one year from the original booking, then any new pricing in effect will apply.
Any other advice I could give a couple?
Focus on quality – you want these memories to last a lifetime so it’s really something worth investing in. There is nothing worse than having the biggest day of your life and then nothing to show for it. Trust me… I know!
What is the most important thing on the wedding day for you as a photographer?
The most important thing is that you can relax and enjoy your day! Be yourself, don’t worry about posing, or being perfect just be yourself! It will go by faster than you think and I want to be able to capture your day in the most authentic way possible!
Do you offer Albums?
I firmly believe in printing your moments! I offer a range of beautifully crafted albums that you can choose from when booking your wedding, as well as smaller options for your parents.
Do you only shoot weddings?
No, I also shoot a number of Newborn & Lifestyle shoots throughout the year
