A wedding is so much more than the planned moment of the day. It’s the ones happening in between and on the side-lines that tells the complete story. There is something special about bringing two families together - generations of family and friends gathering for a celebration of love…

Wedding Photographer

Mossel Bay | George | Knysna | Plettenberg Bay | Port Elizabeth

The highlight of my career as a wedding photographer in South Africa has been having the opportunity to photograph many diverse cultures and ethnic groups, from Greek Orthodox, Jewish, Christian, Hindu and traditional African weddings.

16 years’ experience has taught me that no two weddings are the same. I have learnt to be prepared to deal with unexpected curve-balls on the big day. At times it may be a radical weather change and sometimes it’s dealing with the complexities of family politics. Whatever happens on the day – I see it as a ‘reality shoot” and there are no dress rehearsals. That’s what keeps each wedding memorable and exciting.

Once the flowers are gone and the champagne has been drunk, the only tangible thing left after your wedding day is your partner, the wedding rings, and your wedding photographs.
