WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
DO YOU WORK WITH A SECOND SHOOTER?
Yes and I LOVE having a second shooter with me on a wedding day! They add another layer of detail to your photos and ensure that different angles of a formality is captured. That is why all my Package Options include 2 photographers ;) Do note that we prefer not to split up on the day. This is to ensure that the second shooter is always present to fill in moments the main photographer might miss.
IS OUR BOOKING FEE REFUNDABLE + CAN WE CHANGE / CANCEL OUR DATE?
The booking fee is non-refundable. A client can cancel a booking at any time, but in doing so will forfeit their booking fee. Depending on when the cancellation takes place, additional terms apply to the outstanding amount due. This is discussed in-depth in our Booking Form (Terms + Conditions).
DO YOU HAVE SERVICE PROVIDERS YOU PREFER TO WORK WITH?
CAN WE RECEIVE THE RAW IMAGES?
Unfortunately not. I select the best images which tell the story of your day and edit each one in our signature style. Releasing RAWs won't properly display our work and can negatively affect our brand. If you wish to receive additional images, arrangement can be made and an additional editing fee will apply.
DO YOU WORK OVERTIME IF THINGS RUN LATE?
We do if you require us to, but this is subject to approval depending on the distance your venue is from my home. It's best to arrange additional hours beforehand to ensure we are well informed and if need be, have made arrangements for accommodation.
DO WE HAVE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A MEAL + SEAT DURING THE RECEPTION?
Yes please! Our creativity is greatly affected by a full tummy. You don't have to seat us with your guests, but if you do decide to seat us in a different room, please ensure it is in sight of your reception festivities. We don't want to miss any important moments.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED + ARE YOU WILLING TO TRAVEL?
PLEASE NOTE: Due to current travel restrictions, Marli Koen Photography will only take on weddings in the Western Cape until further notice.
WHAT IS IT LIKE TO WORK WITH YOU?
Previous clients have said that their experience was fun, natural and I am easy to work with as a photographer :) You can read more aout their experience here.
HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU COVER ON A WEEKEND?
I only book ONE wedding per weekend. We put a lot of heart and soul into documenting celebrations and it is extremely draining on an emotional level. We deliver our best work when we are not overbooked.
