NOTE: I won't be taking any new wedding photography requests. The focus of this website will change in 2020 to more accurately reflect my business interests. Wedding photography was an interesting journey at the right time, which has taught me a great amount about life and business. It has also put me in contact with a few individuals who have broadened my horizons in a good way. Alas, genoeg van dit nou and time to let go. Laters. H.

"Jy is stunningly amazingly AWESOME!" - Riëtte P.
" Hi Hannes
It's been a few months since the wedding and we've been showing our album and photos to anyone and everyone willing to take a look. :)
Someone that we don't see very often made a comment the other day, which really hit home how special the photos are that you captured - and not just for us. She was under the impression that you're a close friend who captured our wedding day as a gift to us.
A million thank you's!
Your work is impeccable.
Tamarin" - Tamarin H.
"The photos are beyond stunning!" - Jyoti S.
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for the photos. In short, thank you and well done. When I recently went to have a few printed the guy behind the counter asked if I was a photographer. I chuckled and replied that no they (the photos) had been professionally taken. Your images speak for themselves and where they don’t the viewer has enough to say to fill in the blanks.
When we started looking at portfolios of the wedding photographers available your images immediately hit all the right notes. We wanted a photographer that would capture the special moments of our wedding without all the cliché and set ups and particularly wanted images of the wedding as it happened with a focus on not only us but all the people that attended. These are the real moments of our wedding day and the moments we wanted to remember most. You did this perfectly.
Don’t get me wrong the planned bride/groom images are fantastic. We are not supermodels and that is fine but you still managed to make us look good.
My favourites however, are those shots caught in the moment. Your image of myself and my daughter dancing alone is breath taking. I will look at that image in twenty years and it will still reflect not only my wedding but a relationship between a father and his little girl. The images of my nephew, particularly of his grandfather tickling him, are beautiful and capture the happiness our day brought others.
So again, thank you for doing your job and all the best for the remainder of the year." - Scott P.
