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 400 weddings since 2008.

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!
