MORE INFO ON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IMAGES AND PACKAGES.

I love what I do. I live for what we can create. It is as simple as that.

I’ve been photographing Weddings since 2008 and started this incredible journey by a chance Wedding photography invitation.

Since then Photography and especially Weddings & Portraits have become an integral part of who I am. The excitement, challenge, people and their stories make up what I happily refer to as the best job in the world. My style is a combination of Modern Storytelling and Classic, Creative Portraiture.

I’ve been fortunate to have some of the Weddings and Couple portraits work featured on JUNEBUG WEDDINGS, HUFFINGTON POST, RANGEFINDER ONLINE, FEARLESS PHOTOGRAPHERS, MYWED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS, MOMENT JUNKIE, ELLE HONG KONG, MOOITROUES, HARPERS BAZAAR and COSMOPOLITAN USA among other features.

I’m married to a talented creative genius, dad to a little rock-star and I’ve been waiting more than 20 years to see Pearl Jam live. 

Do you travel for weddings?

Yes, I do and have completed a couple of destination weddings. I only shoot a limited amount of Destination Weddings per year so be sure to enquire well in advance of your wedding date.

How long in advance should we book?

On average, I receive bookings 9-12 months before the wedding date as the wedding industry most often works on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. I shoot an average of 25 Weddings each year which means that important dates, specific holidays and long weekends should always be booked longer in advance as these dates fill up the fastest.

Should we book an engagement shoot?

It’s not necessary but definitely advised! Couple portraits and lifestyle sessions gives me as photographer and you as client the opportunity to get to know each other before your wedding day and more importantly, it builds trust. When your big day arrives you will be more relaxed when we spend the majority of your wedding with you, which is on average 90% of your big day! You also get to see my method and style of working and will have images to use on invites, save the dates and show off to family and friends. 

Robberg Reserve Engagement Portraits

Family portraits and formals?

Yes! I advise taking all the group shots of close family directly after the ceremony or during reception. These are important and goes quickly if you can supply me with list of names before the wedding day to ensure all the close family are photographed.

Informal Bridal Party Portraits

How long before I receive the images?

6-8 Weeks for Weddings and 3 Weeks for Engagement Shoots and Portrait sessions.

How do we confirm and place a booking?

First contact me to check availability of your date. If your date is available, I will send you the booking form, contract and final quote on items that you would like to add or remove from the package. Once approved, I will require a 50% booking fee, booking form and contract to secure your booking and hire me as photographer for your big day
