HAPPY CLIENTS

HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL BE SHOOTING MY WEDDING?

I will be the sole photographer on your day along with a lighting assistant. I believe that I offer a unique skill and vision and that it cannot be replicated by a second person. My brand and my style is my own and that is what sets me apart from the crowd!

IF YOU ARE THE ONLY PHOTOGRAPHER, HOW DO YOU FIT EVERYTHING IN ON THE DAY?

I believe that a well-planned day is the cornerstone to having a stress free day! As I will discuss in our meeting I start off with photographing the groom and his entourage in the morning after which they can relax for the rest of the day until the wedding. This takes the pressure off them and we have enough time to get the amazing images you have seen in my portfolio. I then spend the rest of the morning and afternoon with the bride and her entourage, photographing the venue in between as it is completed. The rest of the day follows as per normal.

YOUR IMAGES ARE VERY COLORFUL WITH SO MUCH DETAIL IN THE SKY, IT MUST BE PHOTOSHOPPED RIGHT?

Absolutely not! I do not over-process images in Photoshop and keep them as natural looking as possible. Your images need to look relevant and timeless 30 years from now when all the editing fads have long gone. My lighting is always near perfect and I make sure to capture it perfect on the day in-camera. I am also able to capture so much detail and color because I use flash on-location. It is a skill not many photographers possess or can pull off successfully and this among other things are what sets me apart!

HOW DO I SECURE YOU FOR MY WEDDING DAY?
  1. Request my packages and availability by filling in the contacts page.
  2. We can meet up for a face-to-face, Skype call, or just let me know which package you would like to book.
  3. I will send you an official quote. If you are happy accept the quote, sign the online contract, pay the 30% booking fee and the date is yours!
DO YOU OFFER ENGAGEMENT AND TRASH THE DRESS SESSIONS?

Some of my higher end packages include engagement sessions but they can also be booked individually.

“My hubby and I were blown away with our first meeting with Trompie, his love, passion and excitement for photography reassured us that he was the one that we needed to capture our big day! With our high expectations met, we were blown away with our album and photos! One thing that was very important to us was to have a good photographer, with everyone we knew who are already married telling us “photo’s are all you will have to take you back to that one very important day!”.  We never felt like just another client but rather unique and important. The quality of Trompie’s work is a superior level, always helping his clients out with pointers on how to pose, which helps create and capture all those “picture perfect” moments. We are truly grateful to have found and chosen Trompie to take such breathe taking and unique pictures. Thank you for far exceeding our expectations and for always going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that no compromise on quality was taken. We would recommend Trompie to anyone!”

QUINTIN + VERONICA

“A massive thank you for a truly fantastic collection of wedding photographs.  You are an absolutely AMAZING photographer!  We knew from the moment that we viewed your website and Facebook page that we were going to love your work, and you have exceeded our expectations.  You are professional, passionate about what you do and unbelievably creative.  Our wedding day was perfect and you captured the most brilliant moments!”

DARRYLL + SARIANNE

“Trompie Van Der Berg captured the most special day of our lives – the day we become husband and wife. Look… I knew you were good Trompie, but I did not in my wildest dreams imagine that the images would turn out as spectacular as they did! From the quality and detail of each and every image, the stunning presentation of the album and the professionalism displayed throughout the process of working with you, I cannot find one thing to fault. When I show friends or family the wedding album everyone always comment on how stunning the photos are, and I’m quick to tell them about Trompie Van Der Berg! My husband and I am thrilled to recommend you as a photographer to everyone we know! In the end all we can say is thank you…. thank you for giving us wedding photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives!

HENNA + MOYNENE

“Franco & I would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU. From the word go, to the final product your work truly shines through you. The best choice we could of made! The passion you have to get that perfect shot is unbelievable. Your photo’s are absolutely breathtaking, beautiful and has so much meaning. A picture can tell a 1000 words and you captured our wedding in such a way that the memories will last for many years to come. You made all of us feel incredibly comfortable and we had so much fun. Working with you and your assistant can’t be described, you are truly WONDERFUL. Thank you once again for everything, every word of advice and the friendship that was built through this experience.”

FRANCO + ANN

“Trompie is a master photographer par excellence!! Most artists and amateur photographers dream of finally taking that voyage to Antarctica or some exotic place to get stunning images when the masters seems to find them in their backyards. The difference is that they are masters because they see artistically. We had so much fun getting our wedding pictures taken by Trompie Van der Berg Photography. He is professional, creative, talented, gifted in making you feel so relax on the most important day of your life. Each picture captured the emotions of the day in the most amazing way. You will absolutely love your experience with Trompie as well as his outstanding service of executing the pictures almost immediately after the photo shoot.”

WIM + ANNEKE

“Trompie was the photographer at my sister’s wedding three years ago; a wonderfully intimate occasion that was beautifully captured.  When it came to choosing someone to be involved in our special day, Trompie was top of the list; we loved his style, knew he would know how to capture the special moments and ultimately wanted someone who could visually translate just how special Africa and Phinda are to us.  They say a pictures is worth a thousand words…if that is the case, he has written a love story.  Thank you for making the journey to join us and our families in celebrating our marriage.”

JOHN + CHARLOTTE

“Both Michelle and I could not be more impressed with the photos that you took on our wedding day. The old adage states that you get what you pay for! Your commitment to securing the “perfect shot” with the “perfect lighting” was evidenced in the photos which you took. The way that you captured the various moments throughout the afternoon and evening were absolutely fantastic and there is absolutely nothing more that Michelle and I could have asked for from a photography point of view. All those who have seen the photos which you took have been absolutely blown away by them. A wedding is a magical day and I believe that you as a photographer are able to capture the magic which surrounds the event as well as the emotions which are involved in this special day from all of those involved. You are a true professional who has most certainly mastered his craft and I have no concern in recommending yourself or your services to any party!”

STUART + MICHELLE

“Thanks to Trompie and his amazing work we can literally relive our wedding day moment by moment! We had a lot of friends and family from overseas who could not join us on our special day and sharing the blog images with them meant they could experience the magic from the comfort of their homes and feel as if they were there with us. Each time of day is captured against a backdrop of incredible lighting and as the sun went down the photos just got better and better! Trompie is not only an exceptionally talented photographer but he personalizes his style according to your needs and preferences – as a couple we prefer a less posed style of photograph and asked that he capture moments for us. The results far exceeded our expectations and will allow the memory to stay in our hearts forever. Despite not being a couple who lean towards the posed style of photographs the couple’s portrait session is termed by our friends and family as the GQ or Vogue section of the shoot! That’s just one way Trompie managed to make us feel and look like a million dollars!!His talent is not the only thing that speaks volumes but his professionalism and approachability really makes for the whole package. It is easy to trust his and feel comfortable knowing he is working his magic on the day. All in all, Trompie is the whole deal! Thank you for everything.”

BYRON + SUZI

“Many of my friends have been let down on their wedding day by a mediocre photographer so I was nervous of the outcome.  But Trompie’s artistic touch exceeded all my expectations!  I was blown away by how he captured the essence of what we were feeling on that day.  He is an extraordinary photographer and his photo’s prove it!”

JOHANN + BONITA

“As a former student who did a photography course taught by Trompie, I knew his work was already exceptional. And he didn’t fail to deliver for our wedding either! Trompie’s attention to our needs and what we wanted as well as his attention to detail is second to none! We love our images and we will forever be cherishing them and displaying them for all to see. I will always recommend Trompie to whoever asks. With heartfelt thanks and eternal appreciation.”
