13th January, 2011


I am a passionate wedding photographer based in Cape Town.

I like to see myself as a visual storyteller. Some would say that I’m a Photojournalist

Everyone has a story – my reason for living and my photography revolves around documenting real moments and stories of real people.

I love stories, however I am going to try and keep mine short.

I have been traveling the world for just over a decade as a professional photographer, experiencing interesting and rather magnificent places and people, before I moved back to the most inspiring city of Cape Town to be with the man I love.

I love laughing, good photography, music and art, people and what makes us tick. Capturing what makes us tick. I love the ocean, sand under my feet, sunsets @ Blouberg, sunrises (although I am hardly up). I love compassion, appreciation and respect, babies, grannies (taking photo’s of both), solutions, positive energy, logic, fairytales, (logical fairytales), mad love and documenting love, life and all the special, real people in it.

This is me. Documenting the things you and I love is what I do.
