About us

Why we do wedding photography

As our name advertises (The Wedding Photographer), we have a passion for wedding photography and believe that part of our service to you is to make your wedding day more special, more memorable and more enjoyable. We aim to make the photography a fun part of your wonderful, exciting day. We are known for our warmth and friendliness, or so our clients tell us (references gladly given upon request).

We believe in spending time to get to know you as a couple, to understand your requirements of us, and to establish a relationship of trust. Combining this with a great deal of experienceand the use of a combination of photographic styles (traditional, journalistic, modern, romantic and playful), this allows us to capture romantic, natural looking photographs and the emotions  that are such an important part of any wedding day. We definitely do not believe that you have to smile on every photograph. Our goal is to tell the story of your wedding from start to finish and to capture those photographs that make the day personal to you.

Of course, being able to do this together as a husband and wife team is definitely an added bonus.

Areas we work in

We are based on the East Rand (Boksburg) and therefore cover the East Rand, Johannesburg and surrounding areas as well as Pretoria and surrounding areas. We do also travel if required.

Our photographic style

We don’t stick to any traditional (formal/photo-journalistic etc.) style in particular. We do however NOT enjoy taking (or looking at) photos that are formal, posed and ‘stiff’. Even when taking the ‘formal photos’ of the bridal party and family we try to take photos of people enjoying the occasion. We try to make people feel relaxed and to encourage spontaneity. It is important to us to capture the occasion and the people enjoying it, not to ‘just take pictures of people’.  To us the most important of all is to capture the reason why two people are getting married, the love they feel for each other and the emotions around that love.

But, as they say: “a picture is worth a thousand words”. The best description of our photographic ‘style’ are photos of some of the weddings that we photographed which you can access from the menu to
