“a photograph is forever”
– MY STYLE & APPROACH –
Most photographers take pictures. I tell stories.
Im a South African Wedding Photographer who is passionate about getting to know each and every couple I work with, as it is your love story which inspires and fuels my desire to capture the essence of your wedding in a bespoke, and unique way to tell it to the world, after all… you deserve nothing but the best
Like the story of Daniella and Leonardo, a beautiful Brazilian couple who have travelled the world, and fell in love on the cruise ship they worked on,
And the story of Kelly & Graham who were high-school sweethearts, and knew from day one they were meant for one another.
My background as a visual artist gives me the ability to capture and create contemporary pieces of art that are dynamic, creative and unique.
My work will capture the essence of what you are celebrating – your love story – and will preserve it forever, to be handed over from generation to generation.
This is what I offer my couples – couples who have great taste and style, and who value their love story above all else. Couples who love life and are not afraid to push the boundaries. Couples who value photography, not just as a commodity, but for the memories and the value I capture.
Im a proud member of The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP), Fearless Photographers, and Wedding Photography Select (WPS).
All international associations which sets and keeps a certain standard in the wedding industry .
One cannot simply buy a membership, one has to earn it.
- Honestly if I think back to the wedding there’s a few emotional experiences that were special because of the family element, but of all the providers I can only sing your praises! You made me feel so comfortable and relaxed as a bride.Now days, a part of getting ready and preparing to walk down the isle involves the pictures with the bridesmaids in gowns… This was almost awkward for me because of the fit of the gown (yes it flew open once or twice), but you never reacted – your calmness was a delight and I would recommend you to anyone anytime, any day!Also, now that we’ve seen some family members after the wedding and coming back from honeymoon, I’ve heard 3 couples say you were excellent! This speaks to your professional conduct and friendliness. Lastly, a special thanks for making the best of the cold and rainy weather.Eduard & Ane Schlechter
Finding a good wedding photographer can be stressful. Getting someone who can accurately capture the essence of one’s relationship is a rare thing. We are fortunate to call Niel, who just happens to be the most amazing photographer in the world, our close friend. It was therefore an easy decision to book him to shoot our wedding.
We have seen some of his work previously, and so knew that he was a talented photographer. What really blew us away however, was his absolute professionalism, passion and dedication to the shoot. His skill in making the best of fading sunlight on a late afternoon in woodland is a wonder.
He is also very understanding, and knew that we didn’t want to keep the guests waiting outside too long. He managed to give us the most stunning photos on a tight time schedule, and his jovial manner in dealing with all the family had everyone genuinely smiling for all the photos.
In addition, he worked tirelessly the entire night, capturing the dinner, party and after-party. He worked long after he was officially off-duty, and caught memories that we will treasure forever.
Overall, his enthusiasm, relaxing approach, understanding of family dynamics, tirelessness and professionalism were truly fantastic, and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.Devon & Mariska
We did a fair amount of research when we were looking for a wedding photographer and when we found Daniel, there was just something that gave him the edge. We are so glad that we chose him.
His enthusiasm and creative skill amazed us. His attention to detail and his willingness to listen to our ideas while bringing his own creative flare really sets him apart. His understanding of people and his ability to communicate left him with nothing but compliments from both the guests as well as the other service providers.
Thank you Daniel, for capturing our special day the way you did and providing us with marvelous photos and the exceptional albums. You have an incredible talent for what you do!

Oh. My. Word. Daniel was super friendly and enthusiastic right from the beginning. He responds very quickly to emails. It was an absolute pleasure to meet him, our shoot was FUN, comfortable and completely natural. Being very awkward as we are with “photoshoots”, Daniel’s session was nothing like we’ve experienced before, and not only were we completely comfortable- our photos are just phenomenal, next level, out of this world! He is so chatty and easy to talk to. We’ve booked him for our Big Day and we’re totally extatic about that, can’t wait. I just know this unique photographer will go véry far. THANK YOU and be blessed.Danielle
What a wonderful experience it has been working with such a talented photographer. You really captured the pure essence of our journey from the engagement shoot to our wedding truly showing our happiness and love for one another. You really do go the extra mile.Sheugnet
