Additional photo shoot (late afternoon, night shoot, etc.)
Average cost R1700 / hour
Cost range R1200R2200 / hour

This is the per-hour-rate for additional wedding photo shoot not covered on the day of the wedding. A wedding – one of the most beautiful and memorable moments in a person's life – can be quite exhausting. Hence, couples often opt for a separate photo shoot on another day when they are rested, looking their best. The photo shoot is often carried out in the late afternoon an/or at night when the light conditions are particularly favourable to create magical results. For additional wedding photo shoot, expect to pay between R1200 / hour and R2200 / hour.
