FAQ

What do we need to do to secure Striped Fox Photography as our Wedding Photographer?

A 50% deposit  and a signed contract are required to secure your wedding date.

Is the deposit refundable?

The deposit is non refundable, please be sure that you want Striped Fox Photography to tell your story.

What methods of payment do you accept?

Efts

How do travel costs work?

Travel within a 100 km radius of Somerset West will be no additional cost.  The clients are responsible for the cost of travel beyond that and will be billed R4.50 p/km. For locations with a travel time of more than 2 hours, please budget for one night’s accommodation at a modest B&B. For more than 3 hours travel, 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 6 -8 weeks. All the chosen images get worked on individually.  There will be a sneak peak on my Striped Fox Facebook Page and a full blog post 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?

Yes, I would love to travel!  See the world and do what I love!

Do you always take an assistant with or second shooter?

Yes, there will always be an assistant with me.  If the client wish too have an second shooter I will arrange that.

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. During family photos, the second shooter will usually cover guests mingling.

Will we receive high resolution images?

Yes they are included in all my packages.

How many pictures will we receive?

Although I believe in quality over quantity, I usually end up handing over anywhere between 600 and 800 fully edited high resolution images.

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?

I will if you need me to, but I will charge extra per hour. For venues over 1hour away please advise in advance if overtime is needed as this may affect travel/accommodation costs. Extra hours confirmed before the event will be charged our standard rate. Hours purchased on the night will be charged an additional fee.
