Being a wedding photographer in Middelburg means you get to experience some of the fantastic local venues that our area has to offer. One of those newer venues is Maroela Game Trails, just past the Limpopo/Mpumalanga boarder, where I had the pleasure of capturing Milné and Hennie’s magical bush wedding.
This year has been a rollercoaster and then some, and as it finally comes to a close it’s time to reflect and prepare for a new year. I’m giving you the opportunity to end 2020 on a high note with a studio session valued at R500 absolutely free to you. That’s right, it’s time for one last studio open day!
How it works
On the 16 December only, you get the experience of a 20-30 minute studio session valued at R500, at absolutely no charge to you- you only pay for the discounted fully edited digital portraits you want afterwards (priced at R100 per photo). This means instead of a Mini Classic session costing you R1199, it would only be R500.
Who can book
The last studio open day for 2020 will be at my Middelburg studio on 16 December and is available for the following types of sessions:
Women • Children • Maternity
How to book
To reserve your spot I ask for a non-refundable R100 booking fee that goes towards 1 fully edited digital photo. You’re also welcome to add makeup for an additional R150 per person. If you’d like to snap up one of the limited spots on offer, email email@example.com or whatsapp 0790865779 during office hours.
We find ourselves having experienced 8 months of lockdown and we’re now in level 1, and with it, weddings are back. Yes there are regulations, but you can at least tie the knot with an actual wedding now.
The other downside to the effects of Covid-19 is that many couples now have an even tighter wedding budget and are having to re-evaluate their wedding day priorities. An often-overlooked option that works with lockdown regulations and is easier on the budget is to opt for a day wedding, and here’s six reasons why they’re awesome.
Day weddings typically cost less
The magic of a day wedding is it’s laid-back vibe lends itself to less decor, cheaper menu options, a lighter bar tab and needing less booked time for vendors like DJs and photographers. If you book your wedding close to home and book local vendors, you’ll also save on often overlooked travel expenses.
One word: Brunch
Everyone loves breakfast foods; think bacon, eggs, waffles, pancakes and mimosas. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Equally good is that a brunch menu is not only a hit with your guests, but is easier on your wallet than a dinner menu.
Let there be light
As a photographer, I can tell you one reason why I love day weddings- the light! There’s typically ample natural light for photos, which is great especially if you prefer a more light and airy look for your wedding photos. If you book a good photographer, it means that they’ll be able to create couples portraits no matter the time of day.
Keeping it casual
Evening weddings mean getting all dolled up for both you and your guests. While it can be great fun, it’s almost always harder on everyone’s wallet. A day wedding, especially in spring and summer, means more comfortable clothes and more casual, simple wedding attire options for you and your partner. The laid-back vibe means a looser timeline where you have more freedom to go with the flow of the day, and everyone can be home long before curfew.
You can dance if you want to
Yes, you can! A common misconception about a day wedding is that it’s ceremony and brunch, and that’s it. Wrong! If you and your partner dance, your guests will dance. You can still do all the traditional activities of cutting the cake, bouquet and garter toss; you can even add in newer activities like wedding games.
The after-the-wedding is the best part
I’ve seen nearly 60 weddings from start to finish and almost every ‘traditional’ evening reception wedding is a crazy rush, and you actually spend very little of the day with your new spouse. A day wedding means you get the afternoon and beyond to just enjoy being with your partner as newly-weds, however you choose to spend that time.
Everyone deserves beautiful portraits of themselves and the favorite people in their lives. This July I’ll be opening up my Middelburg studio to give you the chance to experience a 100% complimentary 20 minute session with the opportunity to purchase discounted hand edited photos.
How it works
It’s super simple. Your 20 minute session is 100% free and at no charge to you; you get to experience a portrait session and feel special for the day. If you would like any portraits from your session, then you’re welcome to purchase them afterwards at the discounted rate of R100 per high resolution image.

As I specialise in a few genres, you’re welcome to book your complimentary studio session for the following:
- Women’s or Men’s session
- Couples session
- Maternity session
- Family session (4 people max)
- Children’s session (3 years+, 3 children max)

As a mom myself, it never ceases to amaze me how fast our children grow up. It’s not until you put two photos, taken even a few months apart, side by side that you see just how much those little faces change. It’s the reason why I encourage parents to invest in quality photos of their children- so they have those memories before they’re gone.
I recently had Nadine’s gorgeous girls in my Middelburg studio for a classic studio session and for a different portrait.
I hinted at something ‘different’ and here it is: a composite image that brings the beach to you when you’re stuck 600km away from it’s shores.
