 Early Sumemr Wedding Portriaits in the Garden Route.

Nico & Liezel

Ruan was my absolute first Wedding photographer of choice and planned my wedding around his availability. I simply could not compromise on a photographer and had to book the best of the best. A recommendation is merely not enough to thank Ruan for the incredible experience and out of this world wedding images we received.

Fabian & Cara-Lee

Ruan is the absolute best in the world! We got married in South Africa but come from Europe and were not able to meet him before hand, but we very quickly notice that he was one of the best decisions we had for our Wedding Day! He was so lovely, professional, passionate and fun! It's very unique to find such a creative, easy going, fun and very professional photographer and we are so happy to have had the honour of him photographing our big day!

Hi Ruan, wow. These photos have exceeded our expectations, simply breathtaking! I love the way you have captured so many moments in one photo. Very intelligent photography, and the lighting looks incredible! The single shots make us look good and the one of us both outside by the entrance doors look absolutely incredible!

Paul & Lustine

Duisend dankies! Elke liewe foto is ongelooflike mooi! Ons is nog nie deur almal nie, maar daar is reeds soveel lag en nostalgiese oomblikke. Mooiste foto's van my nuwe man en tot foto's van my pa wat glimlag.


Christiaan & Izelle

There are a lot of photographers out there, but Ruan just has a magic touch of doing things differently. His work is absolutely breathtaking and you can see each shot is planned for and captured perfectly. This is the most professional and beautiful photography and we are just thankful he was the one that did our beach couple photoshoot for us. His work is not only taking photos, but capturing memories.


JJ & Amanda

When I looked through Ruan’s portfolio I knew he was the one that could capture those special moments. He was also very receptive of the ideas that we would like our photos to be, and goes great length to help us achieve it. Polite and professional as he is, I have great respect for him and the work he has done for us, and many more couples and families past and future.

This guy is amazing! I was working as a waiter at Hennie & Lirie’s wedding, and I saw him doing his thing. He is truly amazing. Keep it up Ruan.

Jurich & Glenecia

Even before getting engaged I always told my then boyfriend, that one day when we do get married Ruan MUST take our wedding photos.

There is a lot to compromise and consider when planning our wedding, but the one thing I knew for certain was that Ruan will take our photos - I would not compromise on this!
