    How do you usually direct the couple during a photoshoot?
    Yes, I definitely do. I believe it's the photographer's imperative to direct couples to bring out the best in them, and clearly communicate his ideas so everyone is on the same page. With my directing I keep things as natural and authentic as it can be, dropping suggestions on possible poses but letting the couple let their chemistry do the magic. Most importantly keeping everyone as relaxed and comfortable as possible

    I have an hourly base-rate as well as a day-rate I keep to, but as everyone's needs are a little different I am always open to discussions with clients to customise a package that works best for them.

    It usually takes 6 weeks after delivery of digital proofs for print options like albums and prints to be delivered.
    How far in advance should your client contact you?
    It is most ideal to get in touch at least 6 months before the wedding, to ensure my availability; though I currently still have very limited vacancies for 2016.
    What makes your services unique?
    I take an artisanal approach to image making, using the best 'materials' available to create a unique handcrafted piece of art. From my choice of still using film because of its unique fine-art properties, and vintage cameras to imbue images with a nod to timeless masterpieces; to my approach of making sure painstaking detail to put into the crafting of every time. From the perspective at time of capture through to the careful editing process to make the images shine.
    What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, is it a requisite for the client to provide your meal?
