Contact Christelle Rall

Christelle has been shooting weddings for more than a decade and covered 600+ weddings as the main shooter. Her style is creative, unique and innovative. Her images portray unscripted emotion that show the wedding day as it happens with all the in-between moments and memories.  
Her work speaks for itself with many international accolades, awards and publications. She won 'Best wedding photographer" by Admired in Africa and ranked in the top 100 best wedding photographers by various associations for the past 5 years.  
Christelle remains humble and believes that one is 'just as good as your last job'. Her objective is always to provide her clients with powerful, creative and storytelling images - beautiful photos with the clients' personality and emotions shining through. She also focus on creative portraits that show the client's personalities as well as their unique love and location.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I live in Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa, but I travel to most of my weddings across South Africa and Africa. Flights are very affordable and available from my Cape Town to anywhere in the world. For destination weddings, a customized travelling quote will be given in exchange for a barter agreement.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

This is my 13th year as a wedding photographer and I have photographed over 600 weddings as main photographer.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I always aim to showcase the couple's personalities, their souls and their unique love with my images. My photos are therefore storytelling and focused on the in between moments of raw, unscripted emotions. I also focus on creative portraits that show the client's personalities as well as their unique love and location. In 20 years, I would love my clients to look back at their wedding photos and relive the love, the joy, the tears, the laughter when looking at their photo album.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

I do full day coverage with no hourly limits. I believe a wedding day is that special that one should document from the start to the finish. I also offer a 3 hour package for those intimate and elopement weddings or just a post wedding photo shoot.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I do not have a studio and am available for skype meetings.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

BA Communications Science, Dep Film & Video Production, Dep Photography, Fearless Foundation Workshop

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I'm a very down-to-earth and fun-loving kind of person that will not only make you feel at home in front of the camera, but we will have some belly laughs and fun.

7 Real Recommendations

One of the most stressful things when planning our wedding day was deciding who would be our photographer. After much research and speaking to family and friends in the Garden Route, Christelle was a clear recommendation. From the initial contact, to choosing our package, engagement shoot, timeline planning, on-the day collaboration and all the photos that have followed afterwards, we had the best time!

We are absolutely in awe of Christelle's skill, professionalism and ability to capture images in a way that not only conveys the emotion (because boy did she capture some stunners!), but Read More also makes us feel as if we were clearly reliving the memory through the photo. Nothing felt staged (from both our engagement shoot to our wedding day) and we so enjoyed how Christelle let us absolutely be ourselves and worked the magic in and around that.

I went through a long list of photographers for my wedding in the garden route, also baring in mind that I would've flown the best one to my wedding if need be. I found Christelle on the internet and had a look at her profile I was in absolute awe that such an incredible photographer resided here in South Africa and close to my venue! She was truly incredible to work with capturing every part and moment of our wedding day. It was so much fun working with her and getting in the best couple shots! She creates an incredible story with her pictures. We are very grateful we found her!

Christelle was the photographer at my best friends sister in laws wedding 2 years before we got married. She captured my husband and myself in such a natural pose that perfectly illustrated our relationship, with us aware of her taking it. When it came to choosing a photographer for our wedding we didn't look anywhere else. She captured every moment of our wedding day so perfectly! The web wedding gallery we received of the photos is extremely professional and well organised. We chose the package that included a coffee table book. We choose 300 photos for the book. She put it together so well Read More and added photos that went so well with the ones we had chosen when it came time for us to proof and edit the book we didn't change a thing.
