About Me

I am a passionate wedding photographer based in the Western Cape. Being a newlywed myself, I have a good understanding of what the modern bride’s needs are. Brides love working with me because I have a modern, yet romantic style of photography inspired by photojournalism.

I guess The Beatles knew what they were talking about when they sang:
“All you need is love …”

For me – this is what it all comes down to when photographing: Loving what I do goes without saying … but then there’s another level of love involved. Capturing the love people have for one another when they vow to cherish each other for ever after and witnessing the love parents feel for their kids – is what moves me to do what I do!

I love being able to transform those special moments shared by people into tangible memories (photographs).

I believe that excellence is the result of doing something that you are passionate about … it just comes naturally. I have been passionate about photography from a young age and it was always my intention to do “something” with it, but other plans always seemed to get in the way of pursuing this creative outlet of mine. After completing my studies at Stellenbosch University, travelling abroad for some time and then working, in Cape Town, as a fashion buyer for a number of years, I was fortunate enough to be able to make photography my fulltime career … and now there’s no looking back!

    Hi there

    I am/ was SO envious that you got to take photos at Shani & Chrismo’s wedding.
    After seeing what you came up with… your style suited their day perfectly.
    Romantic, intimate, not over the top, gorgeous.

    Well done! Great job! Can not wait to see more.
