frequently asked questions

I favour soft natural light! Early in the morning or late afternoon (the golden hour as photographers call it). I do use flash when needed in day shots to make the picture pop. I would say that I have a soft, romantic way of shooting. Capturing those imperfect and unposed moments. As for my editing; I don't like editing too much but if I have to describe it, it is vibrant, keeping the soft warmth of the photograph I only try to bring out the beautiful colours.
I call myself a lifestyle photographer. Anything to do with people and spontaneous moments. I offer new born, kids, family, couples, engagements and then off course weddings (my favourite) packages.
My shoots are tailored to your needs and priced accordingly, so just write me a message in the contact tab or email me at info@janamarnewick.com, then I will send you the necessary information about the shoot you require.
Once we have confirmed a date, a confirmation email as well as an invoice will be sent to you. On this invoice you will find all my details. An EFT for the required up-front payment must be made 2 days prior to the shoot. With weddings it works a bit different, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required upon booking the specific date out in my calendar. The rest of the payment is required to be paid 14 days prior the big day.
If there is a specific date that you would like to do the shoot, please fill in the contact form when you click “contact” tab and fill in the date. Or you can kindly send me a mail to info@janamarnewick.com . Then we will take the booking from there. Generally I love shooting lifestyle shoots late in the afternoon before sunset… because the soft light really makes great photos, so keep that afternoon open once confirmed. *Please note that I only shoot lifestyle shoots from Monday-Friday and weekends are reserved for weddings only.
Yes you can. I am based in Gauteng and the Western Cape at the moment, yes 2 cities. I am always up for a cup of coffee or even a glass of wine. So just pop a mail and I will get back to you as soon as possible when I will be close to your city.
Lifestyle shoots are 150+ high resolution images. Weddings are anywhere between 500 – 900+ high resolution images will be picked out and edited with love for you, depending on the package you have chosen.

I have a variety of three packages available that caters for all the different weddings out there. If you want to find out more about these, please feel free to contact me via email: info@janamarnewick.com. Send me your confirmed date as well as a little bit more about you and your fiance, making it easier for me to get to know the type of people you are and understanding your relationship better. I will send you my wedding packages and you can take your time to browse through what I have to offer.
You will receive a confirmation email 10 days after the shoot, that your USB is ready for pick up as well as details regarding the collection arrangements. If postage is required, an additional fee will be added to the invoice. Please note: No payment… no photos. With weddings a confirmation email will be sent within 3-6weeks after the wedding stating that the USB is ready for collection or if otherwise organized sent via courier with a tracking number.
What you see on my website is how much editing I do. I handpick every photo and check for colour corrections and add my own personal touch to it. I do not however do excessive retouching so if you would like to look liked you stepped out on the red carpet, I would suggest to get in touch with a retoucher. They will definitely be able to help you.
Yes please. Creative minds can’t work on empty stomachs.
I honestly don’t mind where I am seated, we are all human and I will get along just fine with anyone I am seated with. Please do not place me far away of all the action, if I am eating and see something happening I want to know about it so that I can grab my camera.
Ladies and gents, please keep the room where I will be shooting as tidy as possible. I understand sometimes things get a bit frantic, but remember what you have lying around will be in your photos. You can always ask the bridal party to keep all their things in their room and then you all will just get ready in the groom or bride’s room. This will make everything a bit easier, plus less clutter equals less stress. You will receive a WEDDING GUIDE before the wedding with more tips for the big day.
Yes I sure do. I offer coffee table books that are carefully designed by myself. I did study design as well, so I know what will work. Photographs, off course taken by me, are carefully handpicked and put together in a n album that you can show to all your family and friends.
