Real, Honest Wedding Stories

I love how the stories unfold during the wedding day, photographing the behind the scenes moments before the wedding preparations begins, the emotional moment you see each other for the first time at the wedding ceremony, the adventure of creating beautiful and meaningful couple portraits, when you are welcomed by friends and family as a married couple and the intimate Bride and Groom first dance.


Emotional Wedding Images

All the in between wedding moments, the heartfelt tears in the Bridal Room, the emotions when you see your fiancé at the wedding altar and beautiful smiles when you are showered with confetti make up an incredible part of your wedding day that I photograph in a documentary wedding photography style and share with you. These images are real, honest reportage wedding photography and leaves a lasting impression of the unscripted moments of your wedding day.


Creative Wedding Photography

Beautiful and Creative Wedding Couple Photography in majestic South African landscapes, local wedding photography in intimate wedding venues and destination weddings in a South African Game reserve.
