South African SAFARI Wedding & Elopement Photographer
Originally from the Transkei in the Eastern Cape I now live in Johannesburg, South Africa with my husband Jonathan, daughters Quinn and Arielle and two dog babies (Baxter & Lucy).
Being creative has always been a part of me in some sort of way - from painting to jewellery making to baking. Photography has been a constant in my life for as long as I can remember so becoming a photographer of people has been the most natural, smooth and organic transition. I remember sitting for hours going through my grandparents photo albums and imagining the story behind the photograph.
I really do believe that my camera is an extension of me - of my heart, and I honestly believe that I was made to do this.
I feel a great sense of purpose, pride, privilege and immense joy when I get to photograph the love between a newlyweds.
New adventures, the bush (oh I love the bush), watching my daughters experience new things for the first time, make my heart skip a beat.
My philosophy is every photo needs to tell a story. I love to achieve this in a creative, non obtrusive, honest and raw way. When you look back at your photographs I don't want you to remember what your wedding day looked like, l want you to remember what it felt like. I want it to ignite the love and fire you felt on your wedding day.
Our time together will naturally flow - because we get to know each other before the day we will connect like old buds on the day - there will be laughter guaranteed.
For real though - I am not here to stage your day. I am here to tell your story - it deserves to be treated with love and respect.
It is so important to get on well and feel comfortable with your photographer so if you feeling warm and fuzzy looking through my website and you feel we could be a good match - please do get in touch!
