They made everything so simple and went above and beyond to accommodate our requests. The photography and videography was exceptional.

Where to even begin? Shantelle is the ultimate professional who pays such close attention to detail! Her photography is ARTWORK that captures the moments and the memories! She made me feel so comfortable, not only on the big day, but also leading up to it! When I was feeling a little anxious/overwhelmed by it all, she had such a calming gentle way to make me feel incredible. We were on cloud 9 and so impressed with her photography! Thank you for capturing our love, our memories an the energy of our 2 special days. – Bailey Schneider | Top Billing Wedding
I specialize in beautiful intimate moments – capturing the real joy and love on your wedding day. More than just your photographer, I’m here to work with you – to make sure you keep smiling and feel as special and loved as you are on your wedding day.
My angle as your wedding photographer is not to take away from the natural aesthetic of your venue and chosen details, but rather to enhance it through excellent photography. Imagine your story told as you remember and treasure it through quality, bespoke imagery. Memories are the timeless treasures of your heart. You will want to remember every laugh, smile, secret glance and the most special, intimate moments of your big day. This is why I believe in capturing the real and raw moments so that they last a lifetime.
When I’m not taking photos you can find me creating event stationery and brand design – making this the perfect combination for me to work with you throughout your wedding day journey.
Such an amazing experience! We loved how comfortable she made us feel during our engagement shoot! Cannot wait for her to shoot the wedding next year! – Monique & Arno
Hi I’m Mark, a wedding photographer from Cape Town, South Africa. Having dabbled in various visual arts over the last 2 decades including everything from oil painting to graphic design I eventually stumbled on my love for photography and for the last decade have had the privilege of capturing hundreds of memorable weddings. For me photography is less about the technical aspects, like light and composition and more about capturing a sense of emotion, a moment in time that tells a story. That when you look at those images years and decades later they’re still able to evoke emotion in you. Whether it be a little girl building sandcastles in the aisle of your beach wedding or a stolen kiss when you thought no-one was looking, those are the in-between moments and stories I love to capture.
I have an absolute blast shooting weddings and don’t take myself too seriously. It’s super important to me that couples feel comfortable and enjoy the process of their wedding being documented. I believe capturing a wedding should be fun and you should feel like you’re at a celebration and not at a photoshoot. I love meeting couples and taking the journey with them through planning and eventually celebrating and shooting their wedding. If you’re looking for timeless, emotive photography and a fun relaxed environment on your wedding day, I’d be a great fit for you. Click here to read more.
It was truly amazing working with Mark and having his amazing energy and beautiful ideas to help us create some of our best and stunning memories. – Anika

A photographer should be one of the first suppliers to secure for your wedding day. During the busy summer wedding season 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? We suggest to make a shortlist of your favourite 3-5 photographers and enquire about their availability and rates. If they are available, try and 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!
