10-15 per year. I typically do a lot of commercial, lifestyle and editorial work in addition to weddings. I find varying the type of work I do and limiting the number of weddings I shoot; keeps my wedding aesthetic fresh and unique and helps me to provide a more rewarding experience for my clients.

For me it is all about attention to detail and treating every wedding as the unique celebration it is for the couple. I want to know my clients as much as possible before the big day so I ask alot of questions and focus on developing a relationship with them. The more information I have the better I can capture the events of the day.

I’m based in Cape Town, South Africa one of the most beautiful places in the world.

All images are curated and edited to achieve that clean, sharp and vibrant editorial style you see in my portfolio. Your images will be a combination of colour and black and white personally edited by myself to achieve this style.

I provide clients with High-Resolution Edits via an Online Gallery for ease of download and accessibility up to 1 year after their images are released. USBs are available as an add-on for R 500 as in the Bespoke Collection Options.

Due to the Editorial style of my work, I do not want to rush your images so post-production on images is a maximum of 10 weeks. You will then receive a link to your full gallery of High-Resolution Images { amount varies according to Collection selected }.

I like you to enjoy your images for a few days before I send you the initial album design for approval. This way you have had time to familiarise your self with the images and have decided on your favourites as a couple which makes for an easier design process.

Design approval for couples can take some time as life gets busy. I will send you reminders and follow up on your questions as soon as possible to simplify this process. Once the final design has been approved and submitted for print it takes 4-6 weeks for your album to be completed. You will be notified about delivery as soon as it is ready.

Please note designs will be submitted for printing unless all outstanding invoices for extra spreads and features have been paid in full.

You are more than welcome to contact me up to 6 months after your wedding date to design a wedding album for you or any other printed products you might want.

I design an initial layout based on my own style to create the most beautiful visual narrative of your day. You are welcome to make any changes to this design if you aren’t happy but please keep in mind that my experience in styling, layout and design can help simplify this process for you.

You will have 3 overall design changes before a new design fee is charged. Please also note that only my images are included in these albums.
