Based in Pretoria, South Africa, but I travel all over South Africa, Africa and abroad for weddings.


I am a Pretoria based wedding photographer, but I travel all over South Africa and internationally for weddings. My photography foundations started out at an early age. Growing up I remember being fascinated with my dad, developing photos in his darkroom & soon I started experimenting with different exposures and angles. I shot my first formal event at 15 years old – And from there my love of capturing special occasions only grew stronger.
After school, I studied Fine Arts, with a focus on Fashion Design.  I went on to design bridal gowns, always keeping my photography close to my heart. From there my photography hobby grew & I started doing as many possible shoots for friends & family. The rest is history.
I have been very blessed with wonderfully, talented, mentors & great support. I love what I do & today I can’t imagine doing anything else. My fashion & bridal design background, has definitely given me an advantage to incorporate stylish & artistic aspects into my photography. And given me a stronger understanding and appreciation for the wedding industry.
