You can tell from our images that we are not entirely normal… And since weddings are such big crazy affairs… We fit right into that insane sweet spot to tell stories differently. Fun fun fun! Weddings are wonderful celebrations, so having fun is a key element in our photography… Bringing a hilarious vibe, then candidly stealing those moments of joy in beautiful ways.

As a team, we’re a bunch of creatives that love, capturing the most beautiful moments on a day where two become one is really special to us. And even though we’ve shot over 700 weddings, we purposely invest ourselves deeply into each individual story making every wedding fresh and allowing us to capture natural, intimate and unique images that are not just pretty pictures… But works of art for you to re-live your big day in the most timeless way.

Alexander Smith is the most amazing wedding photographer. The quality of his photos and videos are unbelievable. Alexander has a way of making you smile and laugh naturally in order to capture the perfect photo. In addition to the quality of his work, Alexander knows nearly everything about a wedding – he provided us with so much guidance and support throughout our planning. From schedules and food to the steaming of dresses, Alexander knows it all. There is no one better! – Giullia & Gerrit

Having Lireze as our wedding photographer for our special day was just so amazing, she made everyone feel so comfortable and captured the most beautiful and emotional moments that we will never get back, she has such a calming and joyful energy that I don’t think you can get from any other photographer.  She shares your emotions with you and I think that’s why she is able to capture these moments that most photographers can’t get.  She is truly is one of the best! I would recommend her thousand times over.  – Michelle Liebenberg

Our tips: Book your photographer

After your wedding is over, photos will be your memories to treasure and share. Your wedding photo album will be priceless to you and your families. It is worth the investment.

A photographer should be one of the first suppliers to secure for your wedding day. Photographers get booked easily a year in advance. So don’t wait too long to avoid finding out that your favourite photographer is not available!

Do your research and make sure the photographer blends with your style and personality. Photography is an art and not every artist’s style is necessarily a fit for you. You and your partner will need to be comfortable with your photographer – they will be there for every intimate moment of your day.

So, how do you choose the right one? Make a shortlist of your favourite 3-5 photographers and enquire about their availability and rates. Arrange a quick chat to get a feel for their personality. We highly recommend an engagement or couple shoot to warm up to and get to know each other long before the wedding day.

Most importantly, trust your instinct. You will know when you found the right one! Click here if you are looking for a wedding videographer.
