Thanks for stopping by to visit my website!
I am Nicolene, full-time international wedding and lifestyle photographer rooted in Gauteng, South Africa, but also blessed to spend about two to three months a year in the beautiful Western Cape, South Africa.
Of course I love to travel, especially if that means I get to share in your story, so get in touch if you are planning a celebration - if a plane can take me there, and you are English (or Afrikaans) speaking, I'm your girl!
In my previous life, I’ve been a geologist, and also worked a few years in corporate finance for a mining company, a journey that I really enjoyed, and which honed my business skills. However, doesn’t matter how colorful my financial models became, something was amiss: I could not be the creative individual that I was born to be. Later, after the birth of my youngest, I resigned and that is when my love for photography developed into a full-time career.
I'm a down to earth kinda girl, who totally believe in the beauty of simplicity, and that is also the essence of my creativity. My style is best described as natural and emotive with a touch of editorial flair.
I absolutely adore the softness of natural light, and although most of my work falls into this category, I also love the drama of a good night portrait.
I truly value integrity and honesty, and also believe that kindness will bring you a long way.
Good coffee and spending time with my family makes my heart happy! If I find the time I also love curling up with a magazine. I also have a special interest in interior design and recently dipped my toes into the world of makeup artistry.
The best part of my job? I totally love the friends and connections I’ve made. I get to meet amazing people.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
