I love weddings

As a little girl I was enamored with my gran’s wedding. Her and I would sit together and look at her wedding photos, talk about her wedding day and I even got to try on her beautiful wedding dress. I hope that one day in the future, 40 years from now, each of the brides I have photographed will be lucky enough to be going through the photos I created with their grandchildren, reliving their wedding day.

And what a special day a wedding is! There is just something so magical about capturing the whirlwind of emotions that erupt; the crying parents, the groom who can’t keep his eyes off his bride, one couple coming together to start a shared path. It all makes for a special day that I’m honored to capture.

And as I’m a big believer in love being love, I adore photographing weddings of traditional couples as well as LGBTQI couples and those of varying religious backgrounds. Naturally being the quirky lady I am, unusual weddings are right up my alley too!

Wedding Packages

Working in the wedding industry, I know that weddings do not come cheap. Add to that the rising costs of daily life in South Africa, and I can understand the need for a tight wedding budget. It is with that in mind that I have designed my packages to give you the essentials of gorgeous photos you’ll treasure, with the option to add extras to your package like custom designed photobooks, canvases and printed gifts.

The Details

What is your wedding style? Trends come and go, and what’s the current insta-look today, will be outdated tomorrow. It’s for that reason that I stick to a classic style that captures how your special day looked with my signature artistic touch. This ensures that you have timeless photos of your special day that will be elegant and sophistaced even to your grandchildren many years from now.

What do your packages include? I understand the need to stick to the basics without skimping on quality. For that reason my packages each include a set amount of wedding day coverage, a guaranteed minimum number of high resolution, fully edited photos, black and white duplicates, and a complimentary 30 minute garden session with 15 edited images.

How many photos do we get? Each of my packages include a minimum number of edited images you’re guaranteed to receive. However, I want you to have the full story of your day so I do edit as many photos as it takes to do so and all at no additional charge. These are delivered digitally in a private online gallery that you can instantly download, share with friends and family and buy a range of print products.

How are our photos delivered? To keep up with the times and reduce package fees, USB and CD delivery are a thing of the past; your photos are instantly delivered via a private online gallery that’s online for 60 days. From there you can view and download your photos, curate your gallery for sharing with family and friends and order prints and albums from your own online store. Your gallery is password protected and hosted on secure servers, so it’s 100% private and only for you to view, along with the people you invite to view your gallery. If you’d still prefer USB delivery, you’re welcome to purchase a custom, handmade USB for R550.

Do you travel for weddings? Yes! I travel for weddings within 90km of Middelburg, Mpumalanga. Fees are based on standard AA rates at R4.50/km.

How do we book? Please get in touch to find out about availability for your wedding date as I take bookings up to 18 months in advance. To secure your wedding date, I ask for a 30% booking fee and a signed contract; however you’re welcome to book a consult before finalising your booking to see if I’d be a good fit for your day. The balance of your wedding package is payable in flexible installments or as a lump-sum 21 days before your wedding date.

Do you offer print options? Most definitely! I offer a range of bespoke print options directly from my online store, offering albums, canvases and more.
