Hi, I’m Esli!
A girl who is a major sucker for real and raw love stories, hence I know every cheesy, sobby romantic movie there's ever been made and I’m in business of capturing the beautiful people who decide to trust me in documenting their love across South Africa.
From a young age, I've had the privilege of capturing the world through my lens, and over the years I’ve grown to love capturing people and everything about them: their uniqueness, their imperfections, their emotions and their ways of doing life.
However, I found the most joy in capturing their love for one another. Being married myself, I’ve had the opportunity to do the wedding thing, the marriage and commitment thing, and I must tell you, there is nothing I enjoy more in life than building this amazing relationship with my own person, and what better way to spend my days than being part of other people’s journey where they make that same commitment.
My approach to photography is to capture the small details and the big feelings. The stuff that matters the very most to you and your person. The kind of moments that makes your heart beat a little faster, what makes you want to hug a little tighter, stay out under the stars a little longer, and breathe the little moments in a little deeper. Nothing forced. Nothing set up. Just you two, the way you are.
If you're drawn to this spontaneous approach to documenting your love moments, get in touch with me. I would love to capture your special day!
Some things you should know about my work:
It’s my number one priority to make you feel comfortable, excited and like yourselves in front of my camera. I don’t want to capture anything but who you two really are. On the day my focus is to capture the raw, unplanned, in-between moments.
I’m not only your photographer on the day of your wedding. I’m here for the whole 9 yards! I’ll be in contact with you throughout your months of planning and will be available for any advice, resources, or tips you might need along the way.
I prioritize getting to know my couples before the big day. I know how important chemistry is and will make sure you are comfortable with me before the wedding day. My style is spontaneous and fun, and I want to capture the uniqueness of your day.
A little note from me to you:
If you plan on having a day where you dance, laugh, enjoy the people around you, forget about time, ugly cry and fall in love all over again, I’m your girl!
