My Story

Thank you for visiting my website, I absolutely love that I get to be a part of a wedding day and other special moments. My heart is in my work, I have a deep love and care for the work I do and for the people I meet. I am honored to celebrate beautiful moments with couples.

I have always been an artist, I started painting and doing creative projects with my father from a young age. I grew up near the Kruger Park in a small town called White River and moved to Cape Town as I started High school. The bush veld has a special place in my heart and it is a dream of mine to photograph a wedding in the bush veld. I love animals, spending quality time with friends and family, I am passionately pursuing a relationship with Jesus and give all the glory to Him in everything that I do and accomplish. I am a sweet tooth, I love food and trying out new restaurants and returning to the ones I loved, I love being outside and enjoying nature, I love exploring, I love road trips, I love taking photographs, I love travelling and I am a hopeless romantic.

I believe in loving people and genuinely caring about others. I believe in delivering good quality and consistent work. I believe in contributing in a meaningful and positive way towards your wedding and to make your time with me enjoyable and fun. I believe in art, I believe in love, I believe in moments that can take your breath away, I believe in family. I invest into every couple that I meet, I invest into every wedding and love story. It is an honor and privilege to be a part of a wedding.

My style of photography is documentary, real and honest. I love capturing life as I see it. I enjoy taking photographs as the moments unfold, I also have a love for taking beautiful portrait work and make sure that I have a good balance between capturing moments and being an artist. I have a 2 year diploma in professional photography. I am a story teller, I have been given the opportunity to capture significantly important moments that you keep and cherish forever. My grandmother has always kept photographs of me in an album growing up and my absolute favorite thing in this word to this day is to go visit her, spend time with her in her living room, looking through the photographs of my family and moments that we have spent together. I know that one day my children will get to see these photographs and it brings me such a sense of joy.

“But the most beautiful things in life are not just things. They’re people and places, memories and pictures. They’re feelings and moments, smiles and laughter.”
