Hey there! I’m Anke, a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Malmesbury, South Africa.
My approach to your session is authentic and documentary, I love to capture your day as the story unfolds allowing you to relive every moment all over again. As a photographer with more than 6 years’ experience and over 80 weddings, I’m honoured to experience vulnerable and priceless moments in people’s lives. Nothing excites me more than being able to share in your beautiful love story; documenting all the moments, the small gestures, the celebratory confetti shots, tears, giggles and all the highlights in between.
After doing a photography course in Stellenbosch, I used to second shoot and assist other photographers at weddings to get hands on experience of capturing such a big day in one’s life.
Weddings and wedding photography are very close to my heart and a cause of great excitement – I’ve really grown to love being part of the wedding day, it combines three of my favourite things: love, photography and people. I’m energized by people and I’m fascinated by their stories. Witnessing real love every weekend and curating that story with my camera is one of the most rewarding and amazing jobs I can think of.
My style follows a documentary approach with direction given when needed. I aim to keep things as relaxed as possible both in front of the lens and behind the camera. My passion is to tell stories amidst life’s unplanned and spontaneous moments. Be it about a gentle touch, a deep laugh, a shared look, overwhelming joy, passion and celebration, I am there to document it all.
As you look through your photos, I want to leave you with a feeling; an authentic memory of your wedding day. I believe that your wedding photographer should capture the day with as much joy, love and attention as you have put into organising it.
I am primarily a wedding photographer, but also shoot lifestyle, commercial and editorial photography. My style is a mix between creative portraiture and documentary which gives me flexibility and adaptability between a range of different shoots. I opt for more organic and natural imagery as opposed to overly “posed” photos. My goal for each and every shoot is to cultivate a relaxed and fun atmosphere allowing my photos to be more natural, spontaneous and full of emotion.
Wedding packages start at R7500.00 and lifestyle sessions start at R2000.00
Wedding photography is my passion. It is an art that was gifted to me only to return to a family on their wedding day. It is a special day when two hearts become one. A day that the bride has been dreaming of since her childhood. A day with tears and joy. It is a day that will never happen again and I will be there capturing those special moments for you to last a lifetime.
Photography is the little, everyday activities… the ones that are easy to overlook… these are what stand out to me as the moments in our lives that we should remember, what we should capture and appreciate.
