behind the lense

Hi there, hello daar! My name is Karoelien, and I'm the face behind the lens, usually making jokes and lightening the mood! I’m known for seeing things from a different perspective, snapping away to get in-the-moment emotive shots.

My story started when I bought my first professional camera, which was only for travelling and blogging purposes. But within months, I realised that I prefer to have my say in images rather than words! Today, I just can’t picture (haha) my life without always having my camera nearby!


I’ve had many roles (I have a jewellery manufacturing degree and used to be an air hostess!) and lived in many places (from the UAE to Malaysia) throughout my life. However, my favourite by far is where I’m now, as a wedding photographer and stay-at-home mom living in Cape Town, South Africa! As you can imagine, my little boy Luca and daughter Simri are probably the most photographed babies in South Africa! I’d love to get to know you, but until then, here’s what you need to know about my approach. 

why me

let loose and enjoy

I offer a personalised adventure from start to finish. I’m not here to just press a button; I want you to enjoy the experience and look back on the memory fondly!

consistency is key

The quality of my photography remains consistent and I celebrate individuality without compromising on quality.


I strive for effortless chemistry between us and the camera, creating memorable photographs in a relaxed and fun environment.

get in touch

I’m so excited to go through this journey with you! And, yes, it’s a journey, not just a photoshoot, from our first meeting when we get to plan for your shoot to all the little details on the day to the joy of receiving the final product at the end. Not to mention cherishing it for years to come. 


Werner + Ashlyn

“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! Thank yo”
