I love what I do. I live for what we can create.  
I've been photographing Weddings since 2008 and started this incredible journey by a chance Wedding photography invitation. 
Since then Photography and especially Weddings & Portraits have become an integral part of who I am. The excitement, challenge, people and their stories make up what I happily refer to as the best job in the world. My style is a combination of Modern Storytelling and Classic, Creative Portraiture. 
I love how the stories unfold during the wedding day, photographing the behind the scenes moments before it all begins, the moment you see each other for the first time at the wedding ceremony, the adventure of creating beautiful and meaningful couple portraits together, when you are welcomed by friends and family as a married couple and the intimate first dance.  
All the in between moments, the heartfelt tears and beautiful smiles make up an incredible part of your wedding day that I love to create, document and share with you. 

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

I am based in the Garden Route, South Africa and available for weddings throughout South Africa and select destinations throughout the world. Travel costs are included in all quotes and wedding collections.

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

I have photographed an estimated 250 weddings since 2008.

2 Real Recommendations

I have to say that it took lots of online research to find a wedding photograher in the Garden Route since we did'nd have any references, but I'm 100% sure we made the right choice choosing Ruan.

Working with him was a real pleasure, he made us feel relaxed and the pictures are out of this world. Every important moment of the day is there. He seems conformtable with all kind of pictures, sunsets, dramatic, portraits, spontaneous... nothing seems too difficult or impossible.

We were probaly not the easiest, people to work with, since one the families didn't speack much english (or none Read More at all), but eveyone agreed that he was very professional, hardworking and easy to work with.

We can't thank him enought for the awesome memories we now have from our wedding day.

Ruan was my absolute first wedding photographer of choice and planned my wedding around his availability. 
I simply could not compromise on a photographer and had to book the best of the best. A recommendation is merely not enough to thank Ruan for the incredible experience and out of this world wedding images we received.
