AstraPics' Wedding Photography Gallery
Drakensberg Wedding Photography

Our package includes prints, enlargements, a photo book, a slide show, a CD and your own free web site

We don't offer a variety of different packages to confuse you. Instead we offer you all of our skills and products wrapped up in one package to create a full spread of images of your entire wedding day, and we then convert those images into a wide range of products, both print and electronic, that enable you to share your memories with your family and friends in a number of different ways.

Once your big wedding day is over, the only material things you have left to help you remember the occasion will be the rings on your fingers and the photographic images. Make sure that both are of lasting quality.

Long before your special day, we will already begin covering the event with a dedicated web site just for you, hosted on our own web server. The web site will enable your friends and family from near and far to get all the details of your wedding and will cover the following:

  • Details of the wedding and reception venues including directions and maps
  • The reception menu
  • Your gift book
  • An online form so that overseas relatives can send good wishes and messages to the couple
  • Contact details and links
  • Accommodation options near the venue
  • An online gallery of selected wedding pictures after the event
  • You are encouraged to send us lots of content so that we can make your site a useful and fun-filled resource for you, your family and your friends

On the big day, our two photographers will work together to provide a range of different angles on every aspect of your wedding. Please note that we do not have an hour limit - we shoot until the end of formal events at the reception. You do not need to feed us, but if you choose to do so we would be grateful. We do not need to be seated with your guests and prefer to work from a table to one side where we can watch and respond to activities at the main table or on the dance floor. We will require a power point to enable us to operate various equipment.

Depending on your requests (and practicalities), the following aspects of your wedding will be covered:

  • Our female photographer will cover the bride getting dressed and being made up
  • The dressed bride and her bridesmaids
  • Our male photographer will capture the bridegroom and the boys
  • Bride and groom details e.g. the dress, rings, garter, perfumes, shoes, cufflinks, bouquet, etc.
  • Scene images of the church, chapel or venue
  • The arrival of the bride in the car
  • The bride walking down the aisle*
  • The couple at the altar*
  • The service, exchanging of vows and rings*
  • The first kiss*
  • Signing the register*
  • Leaving the church or chapel
  • Throwing the confetti*
  • Formal and informal outdoor shots of the bridal party and family groups
  • Formal and informal outdoor shots of the couple on their own
  • The couple arriving at the reception
  • The speeches
  • The first dance
  • The throwing of the bouquet and garter
  • The cutting of the cake
  • a large number of candid images of the couple and their guests enjoying the occasion.

From the many hundreds of images we take, we will select the best which will then be edited and enhanced to create a range of styles including traditional, contemporary and modern. You will receive all of the following:

  • 50 printed photos (10x15cm size)
  • 10x medium enlargements (20x25cm size)
  • 3x big enlargements (30x40cm size)

All of this for just R9500!
