Family portrait and wedding photographer based in Johannesburg

Relaxed, natural photos captured on location

Welcome! I’m Jeanette. I’m a location-based lifestyle family and wedding photographer, based in Johannesburg. I specialise in weddings, events and family portraits that are natural and full of colour.

Photography has always been a really important part of my life. Not only in the photos I’ve taken of my own family, but the photos that my mom took of us when we were growing up. I believe that capturing moments in time are so important… my kids love paging through our family albums (yes I do design and print one every year).

My favourite kind of a photoshoot is one where I’m able to capture what each person is about. My favourite photos are the ones that reflect the real relationships and love between people. I love the moment when I know that I’m “getting”¬†that connection.

I do photoshoots on weekends in Johannesburg and around South Africa (and I also do destination weddings outside SA).
