capturing how it felt, not just looked

I capture emotive, poetic and romantic high-end photographs to preserve your memories so that you can relive them for a lifetime to come. If you want someone that focuses on the passion and not the poses, let’s chat! Trusting someone to capture your big day is, well, a big deal! That’s why I believe it should be a stress-free experience, with me talking you past those awkward moments so that it’s a lot of fun instead! You’ll love how you look through my lens. Forever.

Hi i'm karoelien

Hi there, hello daar! I'm Karoelien. Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, I've travelled and lived all across the world, but now my feet have found their way home again. When I'm not snapping away, I'm at home with my two little ones. I love collecting good wines (with that, I mean drinking them too!) and kicking back on my couch with crossword puzzles or sudoku. 

I'm usually making jokes from behind the lens, so you can rest assured that you won't need me to "say cheese" to summon a smile from you! My clients quickly relax and enjoy themselves because of my guided yet natural approach and an experience tailored just for you, you'll quickly forget about the clicking and focus on the kissing! 


Ashlyn + Werner

“Werner and I had a small, intimate elopement and Karoelien was our photographer. She made our day so much more special. She went out of her way to make sure she optimized her time with us in order to get the best photos of our day. She was professional, friendly and accommodating throughout the entire experience from the moment I contacted her until we got our photos. We couldn’t be happier with the results. The pictures captured us as a couple perfectly. Karoelien is truly incredible at her trade!”

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
