Do you only shoot weddings?
No. We also do portrait, engagement, couple, family, fashion, automotive (cars and bikes), editorial, travel and lifestyle shoots. We are open to any creative work.
Do you travel?
Oh yes. We are located in Cape Town, South Africa and we love to travel in South Africa and the rest of the world. Travel fees will vary depending on location, so email us. In 2013 (May – September) we will spend a couple of weeks/months in Europe (our base is in Berlin, Germany) and the USA, so get in touch with us about our travel dates.
What’s your photography style?
At weddings we have a photo journalistic approach, documenting what happens. Our style is authentic, natural and alternative. During portrait sessions we like to do things a bit differently, it’s fun and we will give you directions.
Do I get my images on disk?
You will receive your images in high resolution on DVD and/or Dropbox.
How many pictures will I get from you?
When we cover your wedding for eight hours you get at least 500 edited high resolution images. After a one hour portrait/couple/family/friends shoot you get at least 60 edited high resolution images.
How long after my wedding do I get my photos?
Quality work needs quality time and we put a lot of time and effort into editing your images. We take two to eight weeks (depending on season and workload) until we post your images on a DVD to you. The waiting time for small shoots is shorter.
Do you make albums?
Yes, we do. We offer several photo book options. Have a look at an example of our made in Cape Town photo book.
What do you capture during a wedding day?
We capture the bride and the groom getting ready, the ceremony, group/family/friends photos, photos of the bridal party, a portrait shoot of the bride and groom (1 hour), decor shots of the reception space and we document the reception including speeches, first dance, cutting of the cake, throwing of the garter and bouquet and the party.
Do you offer a photo booth?
Oh yes, and it’s a lot of fun. We bring a cool backdrop, our studio lights and props (wigs, funny glasses, confetti, bubbles, mustaches, hats etc.) – it’s always different. We’ll take the photo booth pictures for one hour during the party.
Do you shoot digital or film?
Both, but mainly digital. We shoot everything in color and afterwards edit some images into black and white.
What equipment do you use?
We shoot 100% Nikon.
Do you use lighting equipment?
We prefer working with natural light and only use flash if necessary.
