Top Wedding Images
Christelle’s main focus when photographing a wedding is always to serve her clients in the best way possible with top wedding images.
In her 11th year as a wedding photographer, she loves the challenge of capturing each and every wedding in a unique and creative way that portray the raw emotions and special moments as it happens. She makes use of the elements available on the day to create striking compositions with a stylish mixture of lines, shapes and light.
She studied Broadcasting Media and graduated with an Honours degree but the start of 2006 saw Christelle’s interest in photography taking a new turn through her involvement in Film, TV and Video production. She made the transition to full time professional wedding photography in 2011 and has never looked back since.
The beauty, the joy, the drama and the love that a bride and groom shares are just some of the elements that drives Christelle to extend beyond the ordinary in capturing remarkable, timeless moments, a passion that lies with the relationships that she builds with clients.
Her photos has gained many international accolades, awards and publications. She is widely respected as one of the best wedding photographers in the world, (as per International Awards, world rankings and accolades), and is currently the only South African to have ranked in the Top 150 International Wedding Photographers by SLR Lounge (USA), the Top 10 by International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP), Wedding Photography Society (Germany) and the prestigious Fearless Photographers. In 2015 she also won the Best Wedding Photographer title by Admired in Africa, after which she has been selected as a judge for the competition.

When not engrossed in her work (which is rather seldom), Christelle enjoys spending time with her husband, her 6 year old son and 4 year old daughter. She loves reading and exploring the outdoors while experiencing new destinations and cultures with every chance that she gets.
‘In 20 years from the wedding day, I want my clients to look back at their wedding photos and relive the love, the joy, the tears, the laughter… to treasure and feel those genuine in-between moments and raw emotions when paging through their photo album.’
