About Me

Anke about

Hi there! I am Anke!

I am based on a farm between Malmesbury and Moorreesburg in the Western Cape, but I do not mind to travel to capture your special memories. I absolutely love my job and everything that comes with it. I appreciate the people I meet, the places I go and spontaneity in every shoot. For me, becoming a photographer isn’t something I have planned of being in the first place. I always had a love for photography, but I thought that I am a graphic designer by heart – it turns out that I love photography more 🙂 . After I completed matric, I worked at a graphic design studio and I got a chance to develop my photography skills. I bought my first DSLR camera and had the privilege to be s second shooter/assistant for a wedding photographer in Langebaan. She taught me the ins and outs and how to do post processing. A new world opened to me!

I completed a photography course in 2012. I started my own photography business early in 2013. I could only do my photography part-time, because I was working full-time for a company in Oudtshoorn. In March 2016 I made the decision to be a full-time photographer and since then I never looked back! Best decision ever! I can now wake up and do what I love. It is really the best feeling ever.

“If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life”

In August 2013 I married the man of my dreams and since then I really got the picture of what it feels like to be a real bride. I finally got first hand experience of all the stress, confusion and excitement that goes with getting married and it gave me new insights into what so many of my clients feel on their wedding day. I know how stressful it is and how perfect you want your special day to be. I know what a bride wants and expects from her photographer.

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.

Please contact me for my photography packages.

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.
