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.

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!

Tarryn and I were fortunate enough to have Ruan take images during our Honeymoon in the Robberg Nature Reserve in Plett as we eloped - but we did want images to mark our happy day as well as hopefully show the immense love we feel on the inside. Having seen some of Ruan's previous work, I knew he was the right guy for the job! Ruan was nothing short of a delight, and it was such a pleasure to work with him. From the start, Ruan made the shoot easy and chilled and allowed Tarryn and I to "be" - we both had such fun. We received our images today and were absolutely blown away at what Ruan Read More captured. Thank you Ruan, for being so professional and far exceeding our expectations!

I have to say that it took lots of online research to find a wedding photograher in the Garden Route since we didn't 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 at all), Read More 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.
