I will do a pre wedding shoot on request from the couple. The cost will be R1500 for 1 hour and you will get all the photos on disk (100% resolutions) no prints. You will get disk about 1 week after pre wedding shoot.

Seating for functions and weddings?
I need to be seated near the main table. Food and refreshments are to be provided for.

Special requirements for weddings?
I will go to where the bride is getting dressed an hour before she has to leave to go to the ceremony. I dont go to the groom. Should this be a requirement it can be arranged with an additional cost.
After the ceremony I will require at least 1 hour to take photos of family, guests and the couple. I will request a list of all the photos that need to be taken. This will enable no important people to be left out of the photos.

Special effects on photos?
Special effects will be included if a package is chosen that includes a photo album or photobook. I will choose approximately 10 to 20 photos and do mixed colour photos with black and white photos. These photos will be incorporated into the photo album or photobook.
If you have not chosen one of those packages and would like special effects to be done. This will cost an extra R350 for every 15 photos

For children’s birthday parties, normally 1 week after date of party. For functions or weddings normally 2 to 3 weeks after date of function.

When will album or photobook be ready for collection?
Normally 3 to 4 weeks after date of function or if couple will choose photos, then they will be ready 3 to 4 weeks after I have received the selection of photos to incorporate into album or photobook.
