I dont like to be in the spot light, so Id rather have my clients speak for themselves.
Heres a few things which my clients said about me

Have a testimonial you’d like to share? Please email me at info@danielwest.photo

Not only is Daniel an exceptional artist, he is a wonderful, warm person too!

I spent a long time looking for a wedding photogtapher, but when I stumbled across Daniel’s portfolio, I was blown away by the originality of his pictures, as well as the unique way in which he captures every intimate emotion with such finesse. Once we got chatting, I was sold! Daniel will go to any length to make sure the bridal couple is completely happy. From tailor making our packages, to his warm friendly nature, and his extemely professional manner, Daniel was one of our best wedding choices!

Thank you for making us feel like your biggest passion during our wedding was us! Thank you for making us feel comfortable and for making the usually awkward process easy, relaxed and so fun! Lastly, thank you for the beautiful images you captured for us. I honestly could not have asked for more.

Lots of love from
Keshav and Nishthal Mahabir

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.

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.


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.


Woorde kan nie beskryf hoe goed jy is in jou werk nie.. jy doen altyd ekstra moeite met jou mense. Jy laat ons so gemaklik voel. Baie baie baie dankie

They really came out incredible and you did such an awesome shoot!

We really glad we decided to do the Trash the Dress shoot and the results make us want to do it all over again because of how fun it was.

Daniella & Leo

They say photos are only memories…but our wedding photos are moments, captured forever! What an honour to had you as our photographer! Our photos truly represent every emotion that was felt on our Big Day! You can almost feel the wind grazing through the grass…almost feel how the sun kisses you at the trout ponds…ALL JUST BY LOOKING AT YOUR PHOTOS. We would definitely recommend you to any wedding couple! Can’t wait for a next shoot with you..

Alicia and Neill

Dear dearest Daniel,
Finding a photographer eager to capture our special day was not easy – thank you for accepting us.

Starting from our first interaction we were excited to have you on-board. According to Google, love is ‘the strong feeling of affection, a great interest and pleasure in something’ – we felt that with, and for you from the onset.

I remember our discussion prior to our engagement shoot. I told you that I am not fond of being photographed. You laughed showing your beautiful smile and told me to relax and to just be. You jumped through hoops to make the shoot at OR Tambo happen – you listened to us and acknowledged our passion for travel – thank you. The video is BEAUTIFUL!

Fast forward to our wedding – you and Marsonè were the perfect team. We were relaxed yet energised by your enthusiasm and creativity. You managed (beautifully) to snap two brides getting ready for one of the most important ‘dates’ of their lives. You captured it charmingly.

Looking at the images it seems as if you were present at more than one place at a given time. Your professionalism and personable manner were commented on by many of our guests.

We need to thank you, but where to begin – those two words will never be enough. You feel like family – you witnessed an intimate moment in time and because of your passion and expertise we have exceptional and everlasting mementos of our union.

THANK YOU dearest dear Niel, Daniel, Mr West.

Rujeanne en Ilse

Daniel is the best most creative and passionate photographer.
He made our wedding day so magical and made the memories extra special with his professionalism and vision.

That is probably the last thing professional photographer Daniel West expected on Saturday 16 April 2016. As we all know, the life of professional photographers consists of endless hours out in the field, not to mention the administration and editing that often keeps them awake for days…
However, true commitment came from professional West, during an exquisite wedding day of Michelle & Michael at L’Aquila Country Estate on Saturday 16th April 2016. The day could not be more perfect when at the last minute the couple’s initial photographer cancelled due to family responsibility. Time was of the essence as the preparation and excitement of this special day could not be remembered by thought only.
We at L’Aquila Country Estate took only a few moments to realize that there could only be one professional photographer to save the day, even though of his busy schedule. The call was made, another shoot postponed and the day turned out perfect due to one person realizing the dreams of a couple who was just starting the rest of their lives together.
From the wedding family and L’Aquila Country Estate, a BIG hank you to Daniel West for proving that care and understanding is well alive…


L’Aquila Wedding Venue

Myself and my wife Jeanika Jacobs got married on the 27th of February this year and we were privileged enough to have Daniel West as our wedding photographer.

Daniel West exceeded all our expectations and captured our special day as a true fairytale depicted through his photographs.

Every picture captured our love for each other, for our baby girl and the love we have for our family and friends. Daniel West has so much passion for what he does, in combination with his unrivaled talent, professionalism and attention to detail, this makes Daniel West one of the best photographers in South Africa in my opinion. From making you feel comfortable in front of the camera to sharing in the excitement of your big day and just being an awesome person in general, Daniel West will not disappoint.

Like they say a picture is worth a thousand words! Daniel surely captured the most amazing photos of our special day!

Thank you so much for your time, efforts and spectacular work! We’d also especially like to thank you for your support along the way, which might I add has been quite a lengthy time considering our initial enquiry was in 2013.
