My philosophy on wedding photography

Couple in Field at vrede and Lust
Its about the people

As my journey through life continues I realise every day that in the end its all about people and relationships. Marriage is one of the greatest adventures you will ever go on. Yes your wedding is the start of this journey but it’s crucial that couples realise this day is about their marriage Not the details, not the cake, not the food, not the music, not the weather AND not the photos. Its about your partner, family and friends.

Time Travel

In the end you will hopefully look at the photos and be taken back to each moment. Remember the emotion. Remember the smells, Remember how everything felt. Remember the Laughs and the tears. Even I sometimes get teared up during the vows. (Do you know how difficult it is to stay focused then!)

Your Legacy

Capturing this is probably one of the most important responsibilities that I will ever have . I believe that documenting one’s legacy is a huge honour. Part of this is telling the story of your wedding day to your children and grandchildren. Documenting love and special moments between you and your loved ones and helping to create a family history will be my privilege. It’s a huge responsibility and I don’t take it lightly. This is not just a job for me, it’s my passion and that’s why I approach it with respect.

Being Present

Although the final product (photos) are what I am paid to do, the whole experience is crucial in you experiencing your day. We need to make sure you are in the moment, present and not missing out on anything.

I LOVE NATURAL MEANINGFUL MOMENTS. I LOVE BEAUTIFUL LIGHT AND I LOVE NATURE.

My Style

I don’t’ like to pigeonhole myself into a particular style or genre. Every wedding and couple is different. Working with the ingredients that you get will influence the final product.

Unposed Meaningful Moments

When I started out 14 years ago this was the reason why people booked me. Getting beautiful, honest and authentic moments between loved ones has always been my number one goal.

Beautiful light

Beautiful light is at the core of my style. Big soft lighting is all around us. We need to see it. Sometimes we will have to help create it.

Locations and sunsets

If there is a sunset or beautiful location close-by, I will find it…or it finds me.

I LOVE NATURAL MEANINGFUL MOMENTS. I LOVE BEAUTIFUL LIGHT AND I LOVE NATURE.

My APPROACH

In the end its about you. Helping you achieve what you had envisioned for the day.

“Be prepared”

On the day I am extremely laid back and relaxed. I have seen everything. But, I do believe that the success of the wedding day is because of proper planning and preparation. That is why I will use my 14 years experience to help you create the best game-plan to get the most out if. Not only for the sake of the photos but also to make sure you don’t “miss” out on anything.

“Let the day unfold”

Once the day starts it’s like a rollercoaster. Yes I will be there next to you “holding your hands”, but this is a ride where you must swim with the current. I don’t work from Bridal book “Shot lists”. The story of your day will guide us. Although I love a group photo list

“Ninja shoes”

Getting the balance right between “being in the background” and “taking control when I need to” is probably one of the major skills a good wedding photographer needs. Sometimes I will be on the side with a zoom lens. Sometimes I will be in the middle of the dancefloor with a wide angle. I will have my quiet Ninja shoes on as well as my stupid lame-ass jokes ready. (according to Iza there are lots of them!)

“To pose” or “not to pose?”

Ahh, The big question! I hate posing myself. It feels weird and you can see it from a mile! In a perfect world we would all look like Instagram models looking perfect in every photo. However we are not in a perfect world. We have bad posture. We have double chins (sometimes) Its my job to make you look good when I need to. Don’t fret about it. In the end we want to get amazing portrait shots, real moments. Yes we will be away for one hour doing a couple shoot, but this is your own personal hour away from the chaos. The biggest kick I get is when the grooms actually enjoy this a lot more than they thought they would!

I have been a wedding photographer based in Cape Town since 2004. What started out as a part time hobby eventually became my full time career.
There is almost no venue where I have not shot before. And the number of wedding and bridesmaid’s dresses I have seen are endless.
