The story of a photographer

A lover of the visual arts, nature and the feeling of summer! After studying photography at NMMU in Port Elizabeth I decided to pursue a career in the wedding industry- the perfect blend of lifestyle, decor and documentary photography. What a journey it has been! From booking 2 weddings in my first year of business, to booking 20 weddings in my 3rd year, it has been such an honour to meet so many amazing couples and families along the way. I love capturing all the emotions and special moments of a wedding- each one is just so unique, it never gets old!

A bit about me:

  • I met the man of my dreams in my first year of varsity and we got married 6 years later
  • I am a mom of two, and I'm so proud to have this very special title
  • I am also a dog mom to two very cute Cocker Spaniels
  • I don't take life too seriously and love a good laugh
  • I'm not quite the city slicker, so I enjoy getting away from the hustle and bustle whenever I get the chance
  • Summer is my season... Nothing beats the smell of sunblock and salty air
  • I love painting abstract landscapes in my spare time - total meditation
  • Chocolate, tea & series under a warm blanket = my happy place
