I am a South African wedding photographer based in the Garden Route and I get to experience and see some incredible moments in this beautiful country. It is amazing to have clients trust you with these important events in their lives and then to share these experiences with them.  
I’ve been fortunate to have some Weddings and Couple portraits featured in Elle Magazine, Harpers Bazaar and Cosmopolitan Magazine and have achieved select accolades and awards for outstanding wedding photography. 
I’m married to a talented creative genius, dad to a little rock-star and when I am not shooting you’ll find me and our Scotty either in the office finalising projects or in the garden chasing anything that moves.

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.

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

Photographing Weddings since 2008, I’ve been honoured to photograph an estimated 450 weddings and elopements in my photography career.

Ruan is extremely professional and creative. He as an eye for the unseen and does not hesitate to go to extremes for the perfect shot. We were very comfortable with him. From the pre-wedding meetings to post-production exports, you can be sure to receive photography services with international standards.
We searched for a photographer in the Garden Route area for our destination wedding in Sedgefield. Ruan’s photos has a unique character that captures so much emotion, that it immediately stood out above the rest as our number one choice. After meeting Ruan for pre planning it became apparent that photography is not just a job for Ruan, but it is his passion.

On the day of our wedding it became evident that Ruan not only planned the day to perfection, but also had the ability to analyze every moment and was able to capture all the unique and unexpected emotions and situations. The photos Read More are amazing, and is there for us to cherish our beautiful day forever. Soon after the wedding day we received some sample photos and within a short while thereafter the finished product. Ruan surely is the best wedding photographer and we have no reservation in suggesting him for any photoshoot anywhere around Southern Africa.
We were searching for wedding photographers in George area and came across Ruan's website, and we immediately knew he was the one. We could see his creativity and unique perspective going through just a few of his photos. There was something artsy, playful, curious, fun and elegant about his style. When we met Ruan in person, he was extremely professional, kind, gentle, patient, respectful and didn't mind getting his clothes dirty to get the perfect shot he envisioned. He knew how to play with the light and materials in any location and can make it look incredible. We were so happy with our Read More engagement photos, and was blown away with our wedding photos. We were shocked that he worked alone on our long wedding day and still managed to get so many amazing photos that we loved. It was difficult choosing just a handful to include in our albums (which is a great problem to have haha). Ruan always responded to our emails quickly and delivered the engagement photos within a few days and our wedding photos within a month. We highly recommend Ruan for whichever occasion. It was such a pleasant experience with amazing results. Thank you, Ruan for capturing our day so well!
