Pro Wedding Photography - Participant 2015

I am a 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. In 2008 I decided to work for myself because I knew I would be doing what I love. I have never looked back!

A little bit about me, I studied 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. I then decided to come back home and started working for advertising photographers.

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.
