FOR LUISE & TRISTAN

11-13 MARCH 2025

HELLO

I'M YOLANDÉ


YOUR VISUAL STORYTELLER


I'm a mom to a busy three year old and most days you will find me at home with my family.   I love living a simple life. When I'm not photographing people, I love reading and gardening. 

I've over a decade worth of experience traveling both nationally and internationally and what I enjoy most about my work is meeting people from all over the world.


If you'd like to chat more, I'd love to meet you over Zoom or a coffee.

MY APPROACH

AND STYLE


At the very heart of my work you will find a timeless and uninterrupted approach.  I favour authentic moments above all and I do my best work when a couple is so busy being in the moment that they are not even aware that I'm there.


My style has been described as editorial mixed with photojournalism. I have a discreet "fly on the wall" approach on the wedding day. I try to blend in as much as possible and keep direction to a minimum. However I do often lead clients who are not as comfortable knowing "what to do" in front of a camera by offering suggestions on how to achieve natural photos.


I'm very conscientious and I work well with the team & coordination on the day. I keep what is most important always in the forefront of my mind - couples and their families, sharing a momentous occasion.


My aim is always to stay true to my vision and aesthetic while honouring the family and creating a beautiful heirloom for them to pass on.

testimonials

1 / 2

"Yolandé is a professional through and through. No frills, just efficient, and good at what she does. Her work is crisp, clear, and captures the essence of the day without any unnecessary embellishments. 


Her approach is refreshingly straightforward and she seamlessly integrates into the day, efficiently navigating through moments to capture them with precision. Her ability to deliver sharp, high-quality images is a testament to her technical expertise. It's not about flashy effects or over-the-top editing – it's about capturing the raw, genuine moments that matter.


Working with Yolandé is like a breath of fresh air in an industry often clouded by pretence. Her professionalism, coupled with her talent for producing beautiful results, make our job as planners considerably smoother."

"Not only is Yolandé an incredibly talented photographic artist - but she is the most wonderful person to be around at a wedding & event - calm, sincere and a complete professional. We just love working with her and so do our clients!


Her keen eye for naturally unposed moments, special details and all the finer décor & design elements are phenomenal and we hope to be working with Yolandé for many years to come.


She is undoubtably one of the most talented photographers in SA.”

Previous Clients

““Wow!!!! These photos are soooo beautiful! You are truly amazing at what you do. Thank you so much for making us look not so awkward. We truly cannot thank you enough!””

—KELLY & WESLEY

“Such a lovely, genuine person! Made us feel so incredibly comfortable.”

—JAMES & ELLIE

“When you choose a photographer from across the world you choose based on their social media and website. So we already knew Yolandé’s pictures would be stunning.
My husband and I are not big photo takers and generally quite awkward in life!
Yolande made us feel comfortable from the moment we met her. The most awkward couple ended up dancing, twirling and kissing in front of the camera with no awkwardness in sight.
There are not enough thank you’s in the world. We love every single picture.”

—Kate & Ben

“We are terribly awkward in front of the camera and having photos taken was an element of our wedding that we were dreading. But Yolandé made it an absolute delight, and in fact one of the most special parts of our day in the end was our couple shoot as we just got a moment to take everything in after our ceremony while having a little walk - we almost forgot Yolandé was even there! She managed to completely capture the atmosphere of the day and so many special moments and glances without being invasive.”

—Katie & Ruben

“Yolandé!
You are absolutely incredible and these photos are stunning!!! We are thrilled.
You truly did an amazing job capturing our day and we are so very grateful!”

—CALLY & CLAYTON

“"Thank you for rolling with the punches, with us. We appreciate the fact that despite all the last minute changes, the postponement and everything else - you were always a call away!

You have helped make our day the most memorable day of our lives and it also turned out to be something that was beyond anything we could’ve ever imagined. Thank you for capturing it as well as what you did.

Thank you for the amazing photos.
We could not thank you enough for it."”

—HARRIOTT & WILLIAM-JOHN

“As ours was a destination wedding, we only met Yolande 3 days before our wedding for our couple shoot. We had the best session with her. She is professional, down to earth and easy to get on with, and so easily sets the tone for a wonderful session.

Then came our wedding day which she captured so magically that whenever I look at our photos I feel like I relive the day and night. Yolande just possesses that natural ability to put anyone at ease, and slotted into our wedding party like an old friend.”

—PAUL & CIARA

FAQ

How many photos will we receive?
I don't limit the amount of edited photographs I deliver as it so often varies. Although, on average you can expect to receive 500 photos for an 8 hour wedding.
How do we book you?
In order to secure the date I require a 50% deposit/retainer fee along with a signed contract, consisting of terms and conditions which are based on industry practices. The remaining balance is due two weeks before the wedding. Along with the contract I will also forward you a questionnaire which helps me get to know you better as a couple.
How many people are on your team on a wedding day?
On all weddings there will be myself and a second photographer. We often split up and I capture bridal prep while he or she captures groom prep. For bigger weddings with over 200 guests I recommend booking a third associate photographer to help capture the complete experience of the day.
Do you visit our wedding before the wedding?
I will make an appointment to do a site visit at a venue I haven't worked at before. You are welcome to join me, or I'm happy to do this on my own.
Does your packages include an album?
Albums can be added to any of my packages and extra albums or parent albums can be ordered at any time. Please get in touch to see examples and prices.
When will we receive our final gallery?
It all depends on the season, but 8 weeks is typical. During high season it is likely to be delivered only at 10-12 weeks.
