Peter + Jordan Photography Photographers: Peter Driessel and Jordan Hyde

peter + Jordan photography

Hello and welcome to our Peter + Jordan Photography information package. We are a husband and wife team, Jordan and I (Peter) are professional photographers based in Johannesburg, South Africa. We have specialised in professional photography for more than 8 years.

Apart from both taking images with a completely different eye, we both have our strengths giving you the best experience ever. Jordan is a talented makeup artists and will get you ready for your shoot, she is also an editing guru and edits specifically with a woman's critical eye, Jordan is also very creative with set design and posing. My strength lies with the technical side of the cameras and studio lighting and I do the marketing for the business. The cool thing about choosing us is that you get two completely different sets of images, one seen from the eye of a male and the other from a female, so you are getting two photographers for the price of one.

Images of Jordan living the boudoir brand. Being a mom or a career woman and more often both, causes you to hide your sensuality; step out into a Boudoir Photography Shoot and rediscover your sensual side...

Peter + Jordan Photography “Where an image is not just a picture, but an experience”

Why do a professional photography shoot?

Photography is becomming increasingly disposable with selfies and smart phones, many people no longer invest in wall art of themselves. We will strive to give you images that you would be proud to hang on your walls, print out into coffee table booklets or to put up in your corporate offices.

Here is what to expect

You have taken the leap and have decided to book a shoot with us. If at any stage you have any questions, Jordan or I will gladly guide you through the process.

We think that you should always do a little research on your photographer and one of the things to do would be to see their portfolio images as you will receive a similar type of image. Please visit our galleries page on our website to have a look at a few ideas.

Finding the right professional photographer for can be difficult, sometimes intimidating. The first place to start is finding a professional team that you feel comfortable with and can relate to, from the photographer, makeup artist, creative director to the editing, our team has studied in all these areas, we keep up to date with the latest techniques and styles, creating not just an image but an experience that makes you go WOW. We have created a studio dedicated to our art, a fairy-tale land with over 10 dedicated, ever expanding sets (at present), a reception area, private changing areas, we see photography as more than earning a living, more than just taking a picture, every person has a story to tell and we want to capture your story.

Here are a few of our sets:

Preparing for your shoot

If you are a woman we do recommend that you choose the optional make up session, as we only use make up that is suitable for photography, giving that extra edge to your images

Wear solid coloured clothing, you do not want your face to compete with what you wear.

Choose tones that are muted and possibly a bit subdued.

Try to choose similar tones for your bottom or your top, either light or dark.

Tops with sleeves all the way to the elbow are normally quite flattering, but not a necessity

Look at keeping your jewelry very minimalistic and simple.

If you are going for a beach look, go bare feet or wear flip flops, otherwise choose dark socks and shoes.

Your hair you can wear normally although we can arrange a stylist for you, please see the pricing options.

For men we would recommend long pants and then for ladies a skirt or dress coming below the knees, unless you are going for that sexy look, but then you should consider a Boudoir Photography shoot.

For men we recommend a clean shaved face, unless the stubble look is your usual look.

The night before get plenty of sleep, we recommend not going partying that night to look your best in the morning. Drink lots of water the week before the shoot. There is no need to crash diet and those spray. Try not to do anything dramatic with your hair such as a new cut of colour change, unless you have tried it before and know it works. We are not too fond of spray tans or fake tans, these tend to leave streaks or give an orange appearance on camera. We want you coming in looking and feeling your best on the day of the shoot.

Your big day...

The first thing we will get you to do once you arrive in the studio is to relax and let us do all of the work.

Jordan will then apply your makeup, if you have chosen this option, during this time your transformation to your liberating experience will begin. Jordan will also do her best to relax you, you have 30 to 40 minutes to chit chat, allowing those butterfly's to settle a little. Makeup usually takes around 30 minutes and does not form part of your shoot time. If you have purchased a basic hair curl Jordan will then do your hair. We do have an option of a stylist comming in to do your hair.

We will then take you to the set of our choice and then pose you for some gorgeous images.
