A Wedding Photographer in Cape Town.

Hello & welcome to my website, specifically the section relating to Wedding Photography in Cape Town. In this section you will find some of my latest wedding photographs, introductions and expectations and a list of photographs i aim to create for you, on your special day.


Firstly, congratulations on your upcoming wedding, what an exciting time! There are many variations, colours, caterers, locations and options for you to choose regarding your wedding, which can seem overwhelming at first, but i’m here to help you cross a few things off your list.


To

introduce myself, my name is Russell – a Cape Town based Photographer with 13+ years experiences in Photography and Design. I am easily contactable and researched via a variety of methods, from Social Media, my Website and others Testimonials. If you decide to hire me for your special day, i would like to talk to you about a few things. Ideally a quick meeting to discuss your wedding plan and any idea’s or styles you prefer when it comes to photography. I specialize in modern South African wedding photojournalism with my own unique style of photography.  In addition to Cape Town Wedding Photography, i have also been lucky enough to work, live and travel around London and Cape Town as a professional photographer.


A quick breakdown to what services i offer, and what you can expect on your wedding day. I will document all the key moments of your wedding day with natural looking, contemporary and stylish photographs that you will cherish forever. I would like to be part of the memory-making process! I like to split the shoot over 2 separate days, one of those days will be of course, your wedding day, but the other is a complimentary outdoor or studio shoot at a time of your choosing.  No extra charge for this, but it enables us to spend a hour or 2, before or after your wedding to photograph both of you together, when things are less stressful. Maybe you would like to go to a forest, or beach, or any location of your choice. We can even go back to your wedding location – the choice is yours.


I offer 8-12 hours of photography, but the hours are irrelevant to me. I will be there first thing in the morning, and leave once everything has come to a closure. No matter how long this takes.  As long as you and your guests are there, i will be there too. That way i can capture many special moments, and the surrounding areas and incorporate them all into a gallery of special moments and memories for you.


The best wedding photographers in Cape Town should stand out from the crowd and if you browse through my Cape Town wedding portfolio and other images you will see that my photographs have a unique feel to them. I aim to bring that uniqueness to every wedding i photograph. Cape Town wedding photojournalism documents all the key moments of your wedding day with natural looking, contemporary and stylish photographs that you will cherish forever. I cover all parts of South Africa & love to travel. I am happy to travel throughout South Africa or internationally as a destination wedding photographer for destination wedding photography.
