We are speechless - absolutely love every single one!
Justine Einhorn . Australia . April 2015
We were very particular about the kind of photographs we wanted for our wedding which is why we chose Christine to photograph our special day. We wanted natural, clear and fresh images that were classically beautiful and not overly trendy or super filtered that would potentially outdate. Christine captured the most wonderful moments of our day with ease and we never felt like we were posing. The whole experienced from start to finish was so professional and enjoyable, we love our album and the easily accessible online gallery. Thank you for making our day even better. Wish we could get married all over again and you photograph it of course.

I get goosebumps every time I look at my wedding pictures. Christine captured the magic of the day perfectly...Candid, natural and timeless. She was an absolute dream to work with.
Roz & Morne Morkel . South Africa . December 2014
You are incredibly talented and lovely, and really made us and all our guests feel relaxed and at ease on the day - you can see this from the pics and we're so delighted with all of them.

All of us at this moment are going over and over the photos and sending comments back and forth. Central to all the comments is the certainty that once again you have done an amazing job. They are so beautiful, there are so many wonderful memories and they truly capture the day. You are an artist; your work is exceptional and we are beyond grateful.

Today most of us carry our memories digitally in our pockets. But so little of these memories are actually carefully considered, printed and presented in our homes. I strongly believe in the art of printing and the joy that it brings.

One of my favourite products! A set of 50 fine art printed photos that are presented in a beautiful linen box.

Yes, no distance is too far! I've had the honour of photographing couples from all over the world, in South Africa, Germany, Holland, the UK, Spain, Mallorca, Sweden, New York City, Canada, the Caribbean, Angola, Mozambique, Greece, Dubai and Thailand.
I’m proud to be one of the 5 Nikon Premium Ambassadors for Southern Africa - this enables me to shoot with the latest professional Nikon & Lexar equipment. Please see the My Bag section for a list of my equipment (and yes, I always have a backup camera with me).
Unfortunately I only take bookings up to 12 months in advance, but you're welcome to get in touch to get an idea of my packages and rates, we’d love to hear from you.
Your wedding is one of the most important (& special) days of your life and it’s going to go by faster than you think! Therefore, it is vital that you feel comfortable with me, your photographer. I would like you to relax and enjoy every moment and know that I’ll be capturing your day for you to remember forever. I have a very natural approach and I don’t like to be in the limelight. It’s your day and I want you to feel like a princess/queen/diva - whichever you prefer :)
Yes I do, Iaan my husband is my assistant and also acts as a great second shooter.
The best light of the day is at sunrise and sunset. I prefer to use the last 45 minutes before sunset for your couple shoot. If you'd like to know what time the sun will set on your wedding, you can use this nifty website Timeanddate.com.
I personally believe too many couples miss out on the really special moments at their wedding when they spend hours on the taking of their photos. I recommend that my couples plan their day in such a way that they allow 30 min - 1 hour to spend with their guests before they slip away for photos and that we keep the couple shoot short and sweet.
No, unfortunately I don’t go around taking photos of the different groups of guests at their tables. I do however take candid shots of people listening to speeches, laughing and enjoying the evening. Natural photos are what I specialise in. If you want to ensure you have photos of all your guests, I suggest you book a photo booth. They are lots of fun and most of them will give you a digital copy of all the photos afterwards.
No, not at all! Most of my clients live abroad and my business has been built and is fully geared for long distance client relationships and communication. All my processes are set up online and we can discuss everything either through email or via Skype meetings. If you have enough time prior to the wedding to meet up, I’d love to meet you over a cup of coffee at one of the many (must visit!) coffee shops in Stellenbosch.
I'd gladly assist in setting up a timeline / guideline for you! To ensure I have sufficient time for the most important moments I strongly suggest taking the following time allocations into consideration
Yes I do. I offer lay flat, photographic print albums, as well as smaller options for family members. For more info, please see the Prints + Album section.
I love working with natural light, however where necessary I do use flash. Just a little tip: one of the best things you can do for great reception shots is create enough light in the reception area. Candles are not enough.
Unfortunately not, but you can do a wire transfer from abroad.
No, as time and other commitments allow, I also do portrait and lifestyle product shoots.
