All we can say is WOW!!! The album looks absolutely breathtaking, Fareeya and I really appreciate all the hard work and hours put into it. Especially dealing with us and our demands as well as all the finer detail involved. We have just had a look at it and we are absolutely amazed at how nice it came out. Fareeya even had her wedding day smile return. We are so grateful that it came out better than we ever imagined.

Ryan & Rainie Wedding Videography Client

Just a very big thank you for your efforts in ensuring that the Nhlambanyati Bridge submission was such a success. I knew we would get some form of recognition from the adjudicators, but I didn’t expect winning the entire event! Well done to you and your team.

FAQs Portrait Photography

Where do the photoshoots take place?

There are 2 options – Our studio: which has aircon a white and black backdrop, studio lights and a roof for when and if it rains. On a location of your choice: such as the country side, beach, city, gardens or your home.

Is there anything we should bring?

If there will be children included in the photoshoot, we highly suggest you bring some of their toys. This helps them feel more calm and comfortable. It can also be a great prop in the photoshoot although keeping it simple usually works best.

What if it rains?

We will move to an undercover area, or to the studio or reschedule.

What should we wear?

Have a colour theme that everyone can adhere to. A theme allows people to enjoy their own style and flare, while sticking to the same solours. Do not wear shirts with big logos or pictures on them as that can be very distracting in the images.

How many photos will we receive?

Our packages for groups of up to 5 people allow for 30-40 edited digital jumbo sized images. Groups of more than 5 people will receive up to 60 images.

Do you edit all of these photos?

Yes, we do.

How do we get the photographs?

We will contact you when the edited images are on USB and ready for collection or we will send images over the internet.

How long does it take to receive the photographs?

Your photographs will be ready within a week after the photoshoot.

When is the best time of day to schedule our photoshoot?

This depends on where you choose to have your photoshoot. If you choose the beach for example, we would want to do the photoshoot at sunrise. However, if you choose the countryside, we would prefer the late afternoon, just before the sun goes down.

When is the best time to do a maternity photoshoot?

We like to do maternity photoshoots in the last trimester, but with a few weeks to spare, just to give everyone a bit of breathing room.

Do you do Newborn photoshoots?

Yes we do and they can be done anywhere but we do recommend doing them at your home so that it is convenient for you and the baby as well.
