~ Professional Portrait Photography ~
This is our story
We gracefully introduced our Portrait Photography brand, SN Photography, and started taking photos of people as a couple back in 2014, while still living in our home town and working professionally in the golden city of Johannesburg.
By 2015, friends and family gathered to celebrate our big day with us. Without a doubt, it was the most wonderful day, and when looking at our wedding photographs it takes us on a trip down memory lane to that vibrant feeling of our souls uniting as one. For that reason (and many others), our innovative journey in photography extended and developed over the years.
A couple of months after our wedding, we felt proud, humbled, and excited to move into our first place and embark on a brand-new life adventure. If truth be told, it was great finally having the freedom to do what we love in our own time and space. Although we had a cramped studio set-up against one of the walls in our living room, it was perfect for us and we did everything in our power to make it work.
For years we continued juggling our corporate jobs while taking photos on week nights and weekends.
By the end of 2017, we went on a heaven-sent vacation to spend some time with our family in Cape Town over the Christmas holidays, which encouraged us to pack our things and start fresh in the enchanting city of Cape Town.
Our new home is filled with more beauty humanly imaginable and inspires us to grab our cameras, step out of our comfort zones, and experiment with an interesting mixture of styles, angles, and techniques at different locations to discover what works best for us.
After another year of ambition, determination, and serious consideration we felt comfortable with the thought of quitting our full-time jobs to spend our time driving our portrait photography business to the next level – and that’s exactly what we did!
And now, we are blessed to pursue our passion in photography and traveling every day.
Despite all the ups and downs, we are incredibly grateful for our journey in photography and how it has guided us through hardships in life. During the past few years, we’ve learned to be more accepting of our strengths and weaknesses so we can find ways to benefit from both. Photography has pushed us to be full of life, to travel often, and to become more understanding of what is important in life.
Located in South Africa, we live in the ‘Wild West Coast’ not too far from the bustling city of Cape Town – and travel the country to take photos of people, events, and places.
Photography had a positive impact on us while growing up; and to this day, it still plays a significant role in our lives.
Whether laying our eyes on tattered photos or savoring the latest memories: we remember it leading us through hardships, brightening up our dusky days, while helping us view life from a different angle.
Since then we were completely hooked; we knew the joys of grabbing a camera and clicking away would have a positive impact and remarkably transform our lives, forever.
