I absolutely love photographing this happy, momentous, crazy, beautiful and memorable day for loved-up couples. I take great care to be involved, but discreet, letting the moments shine through as I capture them…
My style can be described as informal and romantic. I work hard during the shoot and in post-production to ensure the photos of your day are classic, timeless and beautiful. It’s important we meet beforehand to get to know each other and to talk through the day.

ABOUT US

 

I am a wedding and food photographer based in Elgin in the Western Cape, South Africa and I find so much beauty in the little details of life and love. I want to photograph happy kisses, bear hugs, hand-me-down jewellery, teary father-of the-brides, feet in the sand, light through the window, Karoo sunsets, sea mist, people madly in love and food that inspires you to go cook something delicious! I adore my job!

From very early on I knew I wanted to do something visual with my life and was fortunate enough to be encouraged to follow that dream by my creative, talented and enterprising parents (see more about their boutique gourmet hotel in the Drakensberg – Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse). It was while I was studying Fine Art at the University of Stellenbosch that I first discovered cameras, film and the pure joy in photographing beautiful things. While my husband finished his studies in England I had the great luck to be able to meet and assist for some of my food and lifestyle photography heros and so came to realise there wasn’t a future for me without a camera (and a lot of lenses!!) in it!

Since coming back to South Africa and settling in the Cape my beloved little business has found it’s feet and this journey is now really underway!

It’s been amazing, joyful, liberating, creative, demanding, eye-opening, challenging and inspiring to be able to document and capture life and love (and food!!) :) Thank you to everyone who has let me be there… It’s been an honour.
