What do we need to do to secure Striped Fox Photography as our Wedding Photographer?
Should you wish to secure your date, please send me an email to confirm my availability. A 50% booking fee is required to secure your date, with the balance due 2 weeks prior to your big day. With that you will need to sign documentation to help us both understand what your special day is about, what to expect from me and what I expect from you.
Is the booking fee refundable?
The booking fee is non refundable, please be sure that you want Striped Fox Photography to tell your story.
What methods of payment do you accept?
Accomodation, how does that work?
For locations with a travel time of more than 2 hours from Paarl, please budget for one nights accommodation at a modest B&B. Travel for more than 3 hours, please budget for two nights accommodation. Documenting your wedding day fresh and alert is important to me. For weddings outside of the Western Cape, please budget for two flights, car hire & two nights accommodation in a modest B&B.
Will you guide us with posing positions?
I rather concentrate on capturing those natural and special moments between the couple. If you want me to guide you i will gladly do so with a natural approach rather than pose you too much.
What is the process after the wedding day?
Editing takes between 8 – 10 weeks. All the chosen images get worked on individually. There will be a sneak peak on my Striped Fox Facebook Page before you receive all the images on a USB drive.
What happens to the RAW files?
It will be kept for up to 6 months after the wedding. Unfortunately I will never hand over the RAW files.
Do you offer Photo Books?
Yes! I love designing the books. Contact me for the various options. You may choose to order a book after your wedding.
Are you available to travel nationally and internationally for weddings?
I mostly work in the Western Cape of South Africa, but I would love to travel! Weddings that are not in South Africa I would merely charge travel expenses according to my costs.
What about travel rates?
Travel in a radius of 100km around Paarl is included in every package. For every additional kilometers R5.00 will be charged.
Do you always take a second shooter with?
The Ooh La La and Forever and Always Package include a second shooter. If the client request a second shooter with any of the other packages we can arrange that at an additional cost.
Do the second shooter split up and capture different events during the day?
I try and keep the feel of the photos consistent throughout the day and therefore we will be working side by side. The second shooter is there to capture moments that the main photographer may miss and we prefer to stick together as much as possible. The second shooter is however responsible to capture the getting ready of the groom, covering the pre-drinks and guests mingling.
Will we receive high resolution images?
Yes they are included in all my packages.
How many pictures will we receive?
I believe in quality over quantity, it also depends on which package you choose and how many hours I will be covering.
Do I need to provide food for you?
That would be great! I want to be as alert and creative as possible.
Do you work overtime?
Should you require my services for a limited additional time, my hourly rate is R 1500. For venues over 1hour away please advise in advance if overtime is needed as this may affect travel/accommodation costs.
