With over 5 years experience as a wedding photographer, you can bet I’ve seen my fair share of wedding venues. The following are venues local and beyond that I have experienced:

Being based in Middelburg for numerous years means I know there are plenty of talented local wedding vendors and gorgeous venues. To support the local wedding industry I offer an exclusive 20% discount off my standard wedding package options for weddings booked with the following venues.
Cabbage & Rose Country Venue ⋅ Sterkfontein Guesthouse ⋅ La-di-da ⋅ Rustique Boutique Hotel ⋅ Gail’s Venues
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.
What is your wedding style? While I do favor a darker look, my style is a direct response to your venue and available light on your wedding day. If your venue has a distinctly light and bright look, with plenty of natural light; then your photos will naturally reflect that. On the reverse, if your venue is heavily shaded with very little natural light, then that too comes through in your photos with a darker look.
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.
Do you travel for weddings? Yes! I travel for weddings within 100km of Middelburg, Mpumalanga. Fees are based on standard AA rates at R4.50/km and due to safety concerns, I do request accommodation for venues 80km and over from Middelburg, Mpumalanga.
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.
