“Receiving beautiful wedding photos is one thing, but what you did was far more magical. I get transported back to that day and relive all those emotions all over again every time I look at our wedding pictures. I love how your photographs evoke emotions in all of us and not only just a memory.”Sean & Stacy25 Nov 2017, Zimbali, KwaZulu Natal
“From the moment we made contact with Christelle, we knew that she would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. Planning our dream Cape Town wedding in Australia was so much easier with Christelle and she tailored our package to suit us. She was knowledgeable, helpful and we felt like we had known her for ages on the day! She made us feel relaxed, provided guidance but let us shape our story and the memories we wanted to capture. We really wanted unique, real and personable/spontaneous photos as opposed to stiff ‘rehearsed’ ones, and we love the photos and memories captured. Thank you Christelle for capturing our special day in such an incredible and heartfelt way.”Brendan & Kerry17 December 2017, Twelve Apostles Hotel, Cape Town
“We absolutely love our pictures, they are all we hoped for and more. As we eloped and our families weren't with us, the pictures were even more important, and we wanted some that captured the emotions and the atmosphere of that beautiful day. Christelle did an amazing job of doing just that! Despite the rain she created those truly emotional, stunning, beautiful and heart-warming pictures. We couldn't be happier!”Matt & Dagmar26 August 2017, Praslin Island, Seychelles

“You went the extra mile from start to finish. Your professional, calm, and efficient demeanor, made for the most memorable photographs. Everyone at the wedding loved you!

We could not have wished for a better photographer.”Johan & Marissa12 May 2017
“I also wanted to say that it was an absolute pleasure working with you! We could not have hoped for more in terms of our pictures and capturing our special day. You made us feel comfortable and we felt like we were in our element. You really have a great eye and you are an artist at heart. This is reflected in all your work.
