"I’d give 10 stars if I could! Emil and Lorraine are incredibly friendly and helpful. They produce the best photographs; I highly recommend using their photography services for any and all events. I was given a 48 hour window to get some corporate photographs taken and they kindly assisted me on a Sunday with very minimal notice. I have nothing but great things to say about this team. Thank you Emil and Lorraine :)" - Tanian Walsh
"I absolutely adore the Christmas shoot they did for me and my boyfriend! So festive and fun all while being guided with such expertise! I was so comfortable despite being super nervous because it was my first shoot. There’s a lot of warmth and laughter with Emil and Lorraine and I can’t recommend them enough! You shall get top quality and time each time." - Simone
"Thank you Emil for beautifully capturing my family... We had no idea at the time, but they were the last photos we would have with all 4 of my sons!! You gave us all the gift of beautiful memories" - Diana Folscher
"I approached Emil to do the photoshoot for our latest, Rocking Horse, music album. Well, it could not have turned out better! Emil is the epitome of 'under promise and over deliver.' We had an awesome day on location and a thoroughly relaxed, productive and enjoyable experience. The end result 'speaks' for itself. We have had awesome feedback for the album optics which perfectly reflect the Rocking Horse sound and values. Thanks Emil, and Lorraine ... we look forward to the next time working with you!" - Clive Ridgway
"Absolutely amazing couple, who go above and beyond to capture the most beautiful photos."  - Kim Swanepoel
"Emil and Lorraine photographed our wedding on the 6th of May 23. They captured our moments so perfectly! They are so amazing to work with, they made us feel so comfortable even when everything was super busy. They are patient, organized and lovely people. You can see their hard work, dedication and passion through the beautiful photographs they capture.
Thank you Emil and Lorraine for our memories we get to treasure through captured images by you guys!" - Nikita van Taak
"Really good photography. Very happy with the photos they have delivered" - Etienne Folscher


What experience do you have?

Emil has been behind a camera since 1983 - That's 40 years.  He has even developed and printed his own black and white film photographs.

Lorraine started photography during covid.  She has just over 2 years behind the camera and since upgrading to mirrorless has successfully added videography to her portfolio.

What equipment do you use?

Emil shoots with a Leica SL2S and Profoto lighting

Lorraine shoots with a Nikon Z6II and Profoto lighting

How many photographs will I get?

Depending on the duration of the shoot.  We average between 20 - 30 photographs per hour for portrait shoots and approximately 50 photographs per hour for events.  We are deliberate in our shooting and often wait to capture perfect moments as opposed to just clicking the shutter.

Why do you have a different name for your Wedding Photography?

We know that most couples who are getting married would like to see exclusive information regarding Weddings.  We made this page just for them:  Chapter One Wedding Photography

Do you only edit a certain amount of photographs?

We select all the best photographs from a shoot and individually edit these.  We do not limit the client to a certain number of photographs, and the client will receive all the edited photographs.

What happens if you cannot make a wedding or event?

In the unlikely event that we cannot photograph your wedding or event, we will refund your full deposit and assist you in finding another photographer.

What happens if the client cancels a Wedding or Event?

We would have booked this day and turned down any other bookings on this date.  Therefore If the client cancels, the 50 % deposit will not be refunded.   If the client has paid the full fee, we will refund 50 %

Do you only photograph in Cape Town?

We are willing to travel anywhere, as long as the client pays for the extra travel.  We do not charge for the first 30km from Blouberg for shorter shoots (less than 2 hours)  and the first 100km for shoots in excess of 2 hours.

Do you require accommodation ?

We require accommodation for weddings/events or any other shoot that takes place more than 200km from Blouberg.

Do you require meals ?

For longer shoots where a meal is provided for guests, we will require a meal and somewhere to sit.  This could be a table away from the guests or part of a guest table.  We are not fussy.

Do you have more questions?
