Wedding FAQ

To what extent will my images be photoshopped?
Howzworks aim is to keep all images as natural as possible but might use products like Photoshop to make enhancements and colour adjustments and cropping etc.

What is your photographic style?
I like to stay as unobstrusive as possible and capture hidden moments that add to the overall story of the event. During the shoot I might direct you here and there to get the best possible results but a big part of the shoot is spontaneous fun.

Do I need to seat you at a table?
Yes, thank you - I / we require seating and food. Preferably locate our seating near a wall plug in case we need to charge a battery or power backup storage units etc. and with enough space to park our equipment. If you want us out of the way, please note that you'll then have to make sure that we know when to shoot what part of your reception.

What will you wear on the day?
We normally wear dark, semi-formal clothing and try and stay as unobstrusive as possible.

How will my photo's and final products be delivered?
It is preferred that couples come and collect their photo's from me, this allows for some time to discuss them with you and make sure you are 100% satisfied with the end result. We can also deliver via courier service at an additional fee.

How long will I have to wait for my photo's?
Depending on the package chosen, the digital images will be ready within 2 weeks. Prints will be ready 2 weeks from when, you the client confirms your selection. Storybooks, however vary, due to the complexity of the design & layout, changes and printing turn around time.

Do you travel?
Yes I'm able to travel and if the wedding is more than 70km away you will need to arrange a night's accommodation for me. Howzworks has done a number of weddings around South Africa, namely in KZN. Cape Town, Nelspruit, Nylstroom, Kruger Park, The Vaal & Bethlehem.

What happens if your equipment breaks or if you become ill?
This has not happened on any occasion but if it does be assured that Howzworks will always have back up equipment and a back-up replacement photographer on standby that has a very similar shooting style to me.

How do I make a booking?
Complete the information on the contact us page and Howzworks will confirm that we are available on your required date. A meeting and a portfolio viewing will then be setup. Howzworks will then send you a pro-forma invoice for your deposit which will secure our services for your wedding/occasion. The standard deposit for weddings despite which package you choose is R2000,00.

When does the final payment have to be made?
The last payment is due one week before the wedding day, unless a specific payment plan has beed arranged with you, the client and Howzworks.
