My style is inspired by fashion photography & the pages of magazines like Vogue and Elle. My passion is to create beautiful high art fashion inspired portraits of everyday people.

For weddings; I pride myself in being able to create timeless wedding images to not only capture real emotions on the day but to also make you feel like a model on the pages of a magazine by creating fashionable bridal portraits and cinematic couple photography. My eye for artistic details and attention to the surroundings & moments unfolding; helps me in capturing true emotions while composing high art images in all my weddings.

My approach to photographing couples or portraits does include some directing; in posing and to get the best light for those WOW moments. My main goal is for you to feel comfortable and even though I’m not a great comedian I will try to make you laugh and enjoy the experience of being professionally photographed as I lead you into the poses with some fun interactions between you and your groom. Rest assured that I don’t only focus on capturing posed moments, the natural ones in between, is the cherry on top. It is what makes me love my job and I get caught up in the details and emotions of the special moments that celebrate your love.

I’m based in Cape Town, South Africa one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Beautiful locations make me giddy and I would love to travel anywhere in the world to capture your wedding.

I have chosen to move away from USBs purely because of the convenience & ease of accessibility of my online gallery system for clients up to 1 year after their images are released. USBs are available as an add-on for R 500 as in the Bespoke Collection Options

Most certainly!! I love meeting people in person over a cup of coffee ♥ I am more than willing to bring with my portfolio and a complete wedding for you to browse through. If you are struggling to make a decision between a couple of photographers who’s work you like, I would recommend that you meet them all individually and see who you like best after that initial meet-up. It will help ease the stress of such a big decision and you have to feel comfortable with your wedding photographer.

You are more than welcome to contact me up to 6 months after your wedding date to design a wedding album for you or any other printed products you might want. Pricing is available under the Bespoke Collection Options.

I ask you to select 80-120 images for your album and then I design an initial layout based on this selection. You will have 3 overall design changes before a new design fee of R500 per change is charged. Please also note that only my images are included in these albums.

I work on the following payment schedule once you have decided that I’m the photographer for you.
