Your wedding day should be the day you’re wanting to run and dance down the aisle, into the open and warm arms of your lover, singing and shouting, “YES, LET’S DO THIS, DARLING! …LET’S CELEBRATE OUR LOVE! YAY!!!”
It’s not supposed to be a stressful day …what does it really matter if the catering is running late, or the generator cuts out, or if the bride’s dress gets a little muddy on the bottom … your wedding day is all about being in love, living life to the full and having an adventurous celebration together!
If you are the kind of people who want to create a wholehearted party, filled with your favourite people, and if you do things your own way, if you want your personalities to shine… I might be your perfect photographer.
It costs $600 for two hours of coverage. Or $1000 for four hours.

How many images will I receive?
Every image that meets Swirltography’s professional standard.
Do you edit the images?
Yes, all of them.
Do you offer albums and prints?
Yes, high-quality art-books that display the images much, in the same way, I capture them – with a focus on considered storytelling. Proof boxes, prints, etc.
How far will you travel for a wedding?
I love getting out and about and seeing new places and have photographed weddings in New York, Stockholm, London, Cape Town, Auckland, Melbourne, even Bulawayo. Traveling out of town does take a lot more effort and time, though, so there are travel and accommodation fees, which I will work out with you. It’s to your benefit that I like to travel on a shoestring.
Do you bring another photographer?
Not usually, and I don’t think it’s really necessary in most cases – but if you want it, it’s an extra fee, and I have some crazily talented friends in the industry who will come along. I’ve photographed weddings of up to 180 guests by myself, and over to 500 guests with another photographer. My suggestion is that if there are over 150 guests it should be considered as an add-on, just to make sure we photograph a larger number of guests.
Do you do Group Shots?
Yes. Please allow about 20-30 minutes for them. I always tell people to keep these simple and supply a list with names of under ten groups.
When is the best time for our couple photos?
The best light for couple shots is 30 minutes or so before sunset to just after sunset. Have a look at sunset times at the particular time of year, or I’ll be happy go give advice on timings. While I would love to work my magic in just a few minutes and I’m very aware that your wedding is not a fashion shoot, if you would like couple shots of the same quality that you see on this website, we will need about 45 minutes for creative directed couple shots. The time between the ceremony and reception can be quiet for guests – so why not give them something to do? Create a space where they can leave messages for you, hire a band to liven up the atmosphere, have comfy furniture that people can sink into, let them be silly in a photo booth, do some wine/cocktail tasting and have some yummy canapes! This can become another highlight of your wedding and you can enjoy your time having photos taken while you know your guests are enjoying themselves too.
Are you socially conscientious?
Hell yeah. Ask me about it if you want to know …I’ll happily tell you.
