"Over 500 Weddings | A plethora of memories |Photography with Heart & Soul"
So great to have you here!
For those that know me, they’ll tell you that cool, calm & and collected describes me best.
I met my wife at a wedding I was photographing, and I am a father of 3 beautiful girls (I am rather outnumbered at home 😁). Together we live on a farm in Somerset West, along with our 9 animals (6 cats, 3 Dogs)
After school, I traveled and discovered my passion for seeing life’s moments through a lens and from then on I have always had a camera in hand.
Documenting candid single precious moments in people’s lives that can be relived and revisited time and over again is something that I want to share with each client.
For more than 13 years I have covered & and celebrated over 500 weddings in some of the most incredible places including:
FRANCES & BARD INTIMATE DESSERT WEDDING
"NOSTALGIC MOMENTS THAT REFLECT YOUR LOVE & THOSE YOU LOVE"
Nostalgia, the cornerstone of my passion, is not just a theme but a guiding principle. Each photograph is a carefully curated capsule, containing the laughter shared during the vows, the sparkle in the eyes during the first dance, and the tender moments exchanged in between.
In a world saturated with fleeting trends, let us embrace the timeless, and focus on the enduring beauty found in genuine moments. The result is a collection of photographs that stand the test of time, evoking the same emotions even decades down the road.
- What covering weddings for over a decade has taught me.
- Value people’s stories and journeys.
- Prioritise people over posts Capture moments people will want to relive
We wanted to thank you again for all the priceless moments captured at our wedding in Prince Albert. I realized the moments you captured we will be looking at for the rest of our lives, and will in many ways define how we remember it: beautiful, intimate, and true to us.
A true artist with an immense amount of talent! We feel incredibly blessed to have had Duane be apart of our wedding celebrations and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a talented, easy-going, passionate photographer. He has a unique style and the ability to transform something ordinary into something extraordinary. He captures those really special and natural moments, making them forever frozen in time - there to be relived over and over again. Priceless!
Thank you Duane for authentically and beautifully capturing the best day of our lives. You are an incredible talent and a wonderful human being. The only photo we forgot to take was one with you! Can you Photoshop yourself in one of the pics with us?
The best photographer of all time? We think so. Duane has covered 3 of our friends and having seen how beautiful their photos were, we knew we had to have him photograph the most important day of our lives. On the wedding day itself, Duane was somehow EVERYWHERE and didn't miss a single moment.
Duane, you're phenomenally talented, thank you for EVERYTHING and we can't wait to see our pictures.
The photos are absolutely stunning!! How you managed to make us look that good I will never know. Love them so much thank you so much for being part of our special day. We honestly had the best time ever.
"CAPTURING THE HEART OF YOUR WEDDING"
Being a Wedding Photographer, I believe that sharing in the enthusiasm with my couples leading up to their big day, getting close to them, and understanding what they cherish in their relationship, gives me the opportunity to capture that tangible connection between them, In a way so naturally on the wedding day. 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.
