Channelling years of experience in design and photography, I draw inspiration from the places I see and those I photograph to document life’s greatest moments. Constantly working to hone my creative eye, I strive to capture the essence of your day with heart and style without sacrificing substance or genuine moments.
I have a love for natural light and incredible scenery, and take an approach that combines documentary with fine art styles. I capture beautiful, honest and timeless images that will still resonate 50 years from now.
I believe that your wedding photos should be equal parts beautiful and real, captured in a way that feels effortless and fun. I would love to be inspired by your story!
I want my couples to have it all, the gorgeous portraiture, the emotion, the lively party photos and the unexpected, natural moments throughout the day, as well as the beauty of all the styling and details that you have put so much thought and effort into.
My approach always begins with communication, making myself fully available during the planning process and on the wedding day. I value your experience above all and my goal is for you to have fun and enjoy the day, being fully present while trusting that I’m capturing it all.
The key to this is in the timeline, that’s why I take a collaborative approach with the couple and planner on timelines to ensure I am able to capture your day fluidly and in the best possible light.
For every wedding I scout locations beforehand and master the schedule so that I’m completely prepared. On the wedding day, I do my best to cultivate a non-obtrusive, calming atmosphere that allows you to relax and be yourself. I might only intervene to optimise your positioning or place you in optimal lighting and background. I will always give you guidance and direction to help you feel and look your best in your photo’s.
When you invest in my wedding photography, you are investing in a professional, memorable experience and photographs that will endure.

"Zelda came very highly recommended by a friend and she didn't disappoint! Zelda was friendly and professional and captured our special day so incredibly beautifully. We were so thrilled with her artistic vision and our photo's that we asked her to capture our first pregnancy too. Thank you Zelda!"

Zelda was our wedding photographer and I couldn’t be more happy with our photo's. She captured our whole day beautifully. She was wonderful throughout the whole process. From helping me organize a timeline for the day to making us feel comfortable in front of the camera. I’d recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!

We booked Zel for our engagement shoot and our wedding and had the best time working with her. She was kind, professional and prompt in all aspects. We appreciated her soft but assertive nature. We even had guests compliment how professional and most importantly TALENTED she is. We received our ‘sneak peak’ promptly after the wedding and they were so beautiful I was moved to tears. Zel is a part of our journey now and we know that we will seek her to photograph all our treasured moments. Thank you for everything, we couldn’t recommend her highly enough!!
