FEATURED WORK

9 YEARS | OVER 300 WEDDINGS | INFINITE MEMORIES

My name is Duane.

I am a wedding & elopement photographer, located in Cape Town, South Africa.

2007, I was introduced to the wedding industry (the wedding industry in South Africa has some serious talent, seriously so stoked to be part of it) by covering a friend’s wedding. Naturally, I approached it with the Documentary, unscripted way I had been photographing in my personal life. 

Quickly I came to the realization that weddings can be photographed in a way that is relaxed, non-directed, moment focused. This just resonated with me as a photographer… Fast forward to 2011 and I find myself doing this full time. 

 

I’ve had the great pleasure & honor to witness and capture some of the most beautiful & honest moments that take place between couples, families & friends.
Over the years, my experience has taught me to focus on the real stuff at weddings, to photograph the moments you often miss on the day, giving you the joy of reliving those moments together again.

 

This passion of mine has taken me all over South Africa and various parts of the world.
My Approach to your wedding day will be easy going, observant & made personal to ensure the best parts of you (inside & out) as a couple are photographed

Looking forward to connecting with you.
