HEY, MY NAME IS KAROELIEN
WEDDING, LIFESTYLE AND CONTENT PHOTOGRAPHER
I am the creative behind Krust Photography. I'm currently based in the vibrant city of Cape Town, South Africa, but also left footprints in Dubai and the cultural hotpot, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia
I am a proud parent to two very busy Kids, Luca and Simri. They have filled my life with immense joy and, quite unintentionally, have become my biggest drive. (Together with my hubby)
I'm incredibly excited to embark on this journey with you and hope to tell your story in the most authentic way.
I never dreamed of becoming a photographer. I originally bought my camera just to chronicle my travel adventures. Little did I know, this was the beginning of uncovering a deep-seated talent and passion for capturing moments and weaving them into unique stories
I studied Art (Jewellery design) at the University of Stellenbosch and decided upon graduation to pursue my dream of traveling and became an air hostess with Emirates. During those three years of traveling and experiencing different cultures, I established KRUST.
The creative background and attentiveness toward people and their stories, turned out to be the perfect combo for success. 6 years later and Im still smitten about my career.
The KRUST approach is rooted in ADVENTURE, INTENTION and AUTHENTICITY. Creating captivating images from your boldly natural moments, will ensure that you relive your day, every time you go through them. I don't just photograph your day, I document it. Capturing the unnoticed details, the human connection and the simple yet profound moments that that ultimately weave together to narrate magazine worthy images of your day.
My editing is timeless and true to colour with a softness to ensure that luxurious film like effect. I want you to remember the gras as green and the sky as blue. Given that every wedding is unique, with shifting weather and light conditions, each image set will hold a distinct mood and aesthetic unique to your day.
