Frequently asked questions

Raw & authentic is our favourite style of photography. That sometimes means getting mud on our toes or balancing on a rock in the long grass (whilst praying there are no snakes around) to get the perfect shot. Although you’ll hear us mention how much we love light, we cherish the beauty in humanity even more. We look for those moments when nothing else matters but the present & you can’t help the uncontrolled emotions that come flooding in. Some people call it a photojournalist, lifestyle or even documentary approach … we like to call it life, & when “life” happens it’s our special privilege to be the one snapping away so that you can remember what the moment felt like years from now.

If you’re planning a wedding during the South African summer season then at least a year in advance. We put our all into every wedding we shoot, so that means taking on a limited amount of weddings per year. If you have got a date in mind already let’s start chatting. We have loads of tips to help you with your planning process & would be happy to be your sounding board – we’re really good listeners 🙂

Yeah… travel is our middle name
For Engagement photoshoots generally about 2-3 weeks, & for wedding photography about 8 weeks.
The short answer is no. The long answer is that they are only the ingredients used to make the final product (or photographs in this case). It would be like asking a baker to give you her eggs so that you can bake the cake for her – No one does that right? On that note it also makes us want to bury our heads in the sock drawer when someone “re-edits” or slaps a filter on our hard work. #photographerrants
Let’s chat online over Zoom … or better yet, meet up for a engagement session 🙂
