HOW DO I BOOK ZANZIBAR FLYING DRESS PHOTOSHOOT?
To book a Zanzibar Flying Dress photoshoot you will need to click the „book now” button on our website. There you will be able to choose the photoshoot package (mini, original, premium, friends together, vip) and select the date you prefer your photoshoot. You will then be able to enter the dress color of your choice and pick your photoshoot location. After submitting the request, you will receive a booking confirmation email with detailed information of how to prepare for your Zanzibar Flying Dress photoshoot. Please check your spam/junk folder as it may end up in there by mistake.

CAN I WEAR A BRA?
Our flying dresses can be adjusted accordingly to fit your shape and size. They can be styled in various ways but please note that due to their design a regular bra cannot be worn so we suggest going braless. However, if you need some support, you can still wear bra cups or boob tape (just let us know if you need some).

CAN MY PARTNER/BOYFRIEND/HUSBAND JOIN ME?
Yes, absolutely! Your husband, boyfriend or partner is more than welcome to join you on your flying dress photoshoot to cheer you on and also get some couple shots with you for no extra charge.

IS HAIR AND MAKE UP INCLUDED?
No, hair and make up is not included .Most ladies do their own hair because of the wind, humidity and high temperatures in Zanzibar and hair styles tend not to cooperate and can last a matter of minutes once you step out of the car depending on your hair type and style.The majority of photos are taken from a distance to capture the full effect of the dress „flying” so professional make up is not always necessary but of course you are welcome to hire a professional hair and make up artist if this makes you feel more confident and you would like some close up shots as well. We are more than happy to recommend a local talented professional MUA on request, just let us know once you have booked your flying dress photoshoot.

CAN I RENT THE DRESS ONLY?
No, it is not possible to rent only the dress(es). All our flying dresses are available as part of our photoshoot packages with our team and not for individual rental.

WHAT SIZE IS THE FLYING DRESS?
All our flying dresses are adjustable meaning they can fit perfectly any shape and size from XS to L.

HOW MANY PHOTOS AND VIDEOS WILL I RECEIVE?
The number of edited high resolution digital images and short vertical videos for Social Media will depend on which package you choose.Extra edited images can be purchased after your photoshoot for an additional $10 per image.Please note that the images you will first see as your preview will be unedited in low web quality with our watermark. Once you have selected your favorites you will then receive an email with a link to download and save your final fully edited high resolution digital images (without watermark).

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY EDITED IMAGES?
After your photoshoot we will send you a link via email within 48hrs with the raw, unedited images for you to preview. There you can select your favorites. Once we receive notification that you have chosen your favorite images we can then start the editing process.Editing process for any Flying Dress Shooting is 2 to 4 weeks.Express editing: If you are in a rush and need your images editing faster than the standard editing period you can upgrade your photoshoot package and add on the express editing upgrade for an additional fee – you will receive your edited images in three (3) days instead of the usual 2-4 weeks editing period.

WILL I RECEIVE THE RAW UNEDITED IMAGES?
No. We do not give you the RAW unedited images to keep.We will take hundreds of pictures during your photoshoot to be able to capture the „perfect” shot, and then we will narrow those down and send you the best of the best to preview in their RAW unedited low resolution format.For example we will not send you the kind of images that are unflattering, weird facial expressions, hair blowing in front of face etc.From this narrowed down preview list you can select your favorites that you would like us to edit for you. The amount of edited pictures will depend on which package you choose when you booked your flying dress photoshoot but extras can be added for an additional fee.

WHERE WILL MY PHOTOSHOOT TAKE PLACE?
We have a few location options for you to choose from: Nungwi Beach, Kendwa Beach, Matemwe Beach, Pwani Mchangani Beach, Kiwengwa Beach, Dongwe Beach, Pingwe Beach, Paje Beach, Jambiani Beach, Mtende Beach.Our preferred photoshoot spots are less populated giving you more privacy for your photoshoot experience and less chance of people and crowds in the background of your shots. We always take into consideration the tides and the light.

HOW DO I GET TO THE PHOTOSHOOT LOCATION?
It’s possible that one or more of our spots is located close to your hotel, but if you would love to explore different locations – you can get a taxi or rent a car. Some people for example will book a morning photoshoot at Kendwa and then hop over to Nungwi afterwards and spend a few hours there before they go back to the hotel. So pack your swimwear, sunscreen and a beach towel in case you want to go on an adventure after your photoshoot is over!

CAN YOU COME TO MY HOTEL/RESORT AND DO THE PHOTOSHOOT THERE?

We can come to your hotel and do a classic portrait/couple/wedding shooting there.
We can come to your hotel and do the Flying Dress shooting on your hotel beach.However, we do not offer our flying dress photoshoots at the hotels or resort areas.It’s far too crowded, other guests/public taking pictures without consent etc plus the hotels do not always give permission to do photoshoots/fly drones on their property.

WHERE WILL I DRESS/UNDRESS?
As all our photoshoot locations are outdoors, there are no changing room facilities so you will change into the flying dress outside at the location you selected at the time of booking, therefore we recommend wearing something loose that is easy to slip in and out of.We have specifically chosen locations that are quieter so they offer a little more privacy than the usual crowded tourist hot spots.Also our female photographer Alexandra is always on hand to help you in and out of your flying dress before and after the photoshoot.

WHAT TIME WILL MY PHOTOSHOOT TAKE PLACE?
Daylight vibrant Zanzibar’s colors shoot with blue sky and turquoise water between 11AM and 4PM is best for: Nungwi, Kendwa, Matemwe, Pwani Mchangani, Kiwengwa, Pingwe, Dongwe, Paje, Jambiani, Mtende
Golden hour shoot about 5PM- the late afternoon time slot with warm colors and golden haze is best for Michamvi, Nungwi, Kendwa

HOW WILL THE WEATHER AFFECT MY PHOTOSHOOT?
Each day in Zanzibar is beach day. Whether the wind is strong or not – don’t worry, we always work in team 2 persons so one of us can help you with the dress to ensure it can “fly” and we can create the dreamy iconic shots you know and love!
If it’s raining on the day of your photoshoot we are happy to reschedule for another day (according to our availability) without any additional cost. That’s why we always recommend booking your photoshoot in advance or, at least, at the beginning of your vacation. This way we will have more options to reschedule in case of bad weather.

WHAT IS YOUR RESCHEDULING/CANCELLATION POLICY?
If you have to cancel your photoshoot because your travel plans have changed please inform us via email quoting your booking reference number at least 48 hours notice before your photoshoot date for a full refund to be issued.
