Wedding Photography in Pretoria

Your wedding... the day when you merge your destiny with the person you love most in this world. When love triumphs over everything else. When nothing can take away your happiness. The future will never look more promising. You will probably never smile more on any other day of your life, neither will you ever look prettier (or more handsome). Two families will merge as one. We want to experience this with you, we want to capture this day for you!

JC Crafford Photo and Video is owned by JC and Surika Crafford. JC is in charge of the photography and marketing side and Surika is in charge of the videography, web design and graphic design side of the business. We also have extra photographers and videographers working for us. We are stationed in Pretoria but regularly travel all over South Africa to capture the memories of the biggest day in people’s lives. It is important that your wedding photographer and videographer have a good working relationship that compliment each other. They must also offer you a product that you can be proud of and can show to your family and friends with pride.

We work great together as a photography and videography team, but you can of course book any of these services separately. What puts us streets ahead of a lot of people in this industry is our genuine love for photographing and filming weddings. We are passionate about wedding photography, we enjoy the romance, passion, pressure, party and the honour to be involved with such a big and joyous occasion. We just LOVE LOVE!

It is very important that you must feel relaxed in the company of your photographer of choice, you can have the best wedding photographer to shoot your wedding but if you are not relaxed in his/her company it will show on the photographs. Our brides always say that we were like an extra bridesmaid at the wedding. We consider that as a compliment... it means they were relaxed around us. Let’s meet each other for coffee before you make any final choices, we are talking about your one special day, and the photographs you are going to show people for the rest of your life! Because this is our full time profession and we do this at least once a week we will also have a very calming influence on you on your wedding day. A calm and relaxed bride and groom = stunning photos and video.

How much time do we spend with you on your wedding day? There is no time limit, we will spend as much time as is necessary with you on your wedding day to get the best shots possible and to tell the story of EVERYTHING that happened on the day! We will make sure that everybody and everything that’s important has been photographed. Although we will take the formal posed pictures you can be sure that there will be a lot of natural looking candid photos of you and your guests.

The equipment that we use are of the highest quality to ensure your satisfaction. We also bring backup equipment with, should something unforeseen happen to our gear. The amount of photos we take during the wedding does not influence the price, we take as many photographs as possible to ensure that every special moment is captured. You also get all the original photos that we take. At the office we use state of the art computers to edit on and we have backup servers on the premises to make sure that your photos and videos are backed up and safe if one of our computers should crash. One of the most important aspects of photography and videography nowadays is the editing of the photos and video after it’s been taken. Our editing are done in house. Your photos and video will be edited to accurately reflect the mood and character of your wedding. Your best photos and highlight version of your video will be uploaded unto our website www.jccrafford.com together with a story of what happened on your wedding day and how the two of you have met.

E-Invite

E-Invite

R1 500

Have a look at this, it is really really cool. Be different, instead of spending a lot of money on printing wedding invites, why don't you rather let JC Crafford Photo and Video design you a personalised wedding invitation that you can email to your guests. It’s basically a little mini website with your wedding colours, choice of wording and photos. They can even email you back from the E-Invite to tell you if they're coming or not. The directions and map to your venue will also be on there. In most cases this will cost you cheaper than printing and posting paper invites (and MUCH less hassles) and you go green by saving trees! This is the new trend, You don't send Christmas cards and Birthday cards anymore? Why send wedding invitations?
