South African & Garden Route Wedding Photographer

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

With A Passion For Adventure Wedding & Elopement Photography

I am all about adventure wedding & elopement photography emphasised on grand adventure and epic landscapes. Putting people in the most magnificent backdrops, my photography style can be described as adventurous, unobtrusive and centred around telling an authentic story through photographs that are filled with emotion and beauty.

I am inspired by our dramatic and rugged coastlines, windy mountains tops, mystical forests and forever chasing that golden sun.

I fell in love with being outdoors before I fell in love with photography.

I absolutely love photographing weddings. One of my favourite things is the connection with my couples and understanding how their love started. I get to share one of their most exciting moments in their life and relationship. I love working with couples who share an appreciation for beautiful landscapes, not afraid to hike up a mountain, stand on the edge of a cliff, explore the deep forests or enjoy the tranquillity of a secluded beach.

The best way to serve my couples is to go beyond the beautiful photographs, I want to give them an experience. I believe I have extensive location knowledge and expert level outdoor wedding photography skills. I bring a calming influence to the day (even though I might be freaking inside, you won’t know about it), reassuring and hilarious, I like to think that after an hour you forget that I am even there.

The dream and goal is now taking what I have learnt and applying my love for travel, food, photography and creating bangers in new countries.

I guess when I grow up, I want to be a Destination Wedding Photographer!

So what am I doing if I am not hiking up a mountain, finding pansy shells on the beach with my two best friends Dani & Bear (the best dogs ever!) or travelling, well you can find me at my favourite local cafe drinking an almond milk cappuccino with a few mates, chasing sunrises and sunsets, cycling in our beautiful forests and hoovering a really good cheesecake!

My work has been featured on a number of Wedding Sites including; JuneBug, MyWed, and Wandering Weddings and many more. Take a look at my portfolio for more.
