Main region I would like to work: Cape Town, Johannesburg, Seychelles and worldwide.


I am a wedding photographer based in Cape Town, South Africa.  My passion for wedding photography started when I worked as an assistant for advertising photographers. They would photograph wine farms, buildings and gorgeous landscapes and I would always vision a bride & groom somewhere within their framed shot and this is when I started realizing that wedding photography is what I need to be doing.
A little bit about me, I studied photography for 3 years and received a National Diploma in Photography as well receiving the Top Student Award. After studying I travelled the world working onboard Cruise ships as a photographer, I also started photographing weddings and was lucky enough to photograph weddings in Jamaica, St Maarten, St Thomas & Grand Cayman. In 2006 I decided to come back home and this is when I started working as a photographers assistant.  During this time I started doing photography for some local magazines and on weekends I would do weddings.  
In 2010  I decided to go  full-time into wedding photography because I knew I would be doing what I love and I have never looked back!   I love travelling and will go anywhere in the world to photograph a wedding and I have been very fortunate to photograph a few weddings in the beautiful Seychelles.  
The best part about my job is that no two weddings are ever the same and every couple is different and unique, and being a photographer I get to experience and capture all of this.
