Thank you for taking the time to consider my work.I'm Yolandé
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.
I only take on a limited amount of weddings each season. This enables me to create a high quality, curated and personal service to each of my clients.
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.
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.

“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.”
How I work
I offer a base package as a starting point and from there we customise it entirely according to your needs.
I will need to know a bit more about your wedding plans to enable me to create the best package for you. The kind of information I'd need would include the number of guests, the location, the date and time and any coverage required for pre or post events.
I suggest we meet up over a quick zoom call to discuss this.
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 400 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.
Can we book an engagement session?
Yes, this is a great way to get to know each other and to see how I work and what it feels like to be in front of my camera. I feel this adds an extra level of comfort on the wedding day, having worked together before.
DO YOU VISIT OUR VENUE 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.
