HI, I'M ANNEKE!

MY STORY


I'm a 2000s baby and spent most of my childhood years on the farm when visiting my family. I'm the best version of myself when surrounded by nature, wildlife and good food.


I completed my bachelor's degree in Sports Science in 2021. Athletic performance is a huge part of my life and I might get carried away when you ask me about it. I live by serving people like Jesus served us and believe that knowledge is power. Galatians 6:9 plays a huge part in my life and is also why the HARVEST is the symbol in my business.


Some quirky facts about me:

  1. I'm a gin fanatic, fynbos with a twist is my go-to.
  2. My heart can't decide between bushveld or beach.
  3. Good music is what gets me going in life.
  4. My love language is physical touch and I value lekker people who are kind above anything else.
  5. Dogs are better than people.
  6. Yes, pineapple belongs on pizza.
  7. Meet me at a café with good coffee, anytime and anywhere!


I'll be thrilled to get to know you! Let's get started!



WHERE IT ALL STARTED


It all started in my parents' backyard with a nifty family camera and my sister posing as a model. Maybe even before that when my cousins and I used our flip phones for a full-day photoshoot, the prime days with shocking pink lipstick when 'pouting' was the only pose that slammed. Capturing special memories in timeless photos has always been a love of mine even though I only realised it in 2019. That was when I started my first official photography page. I didn't think much of it at first and just enjoyed all the amazing people I met at the photoshoots. I would've never thought that one day I'll be telling some of the most special stories through my work, but here we are, and MAN I'm truly blessed by it!


In late 2019 I started second shooting for amazing photographers, they've mentored me and I'll cherish every laughter and word of advice we shared. Mid-2020 I shot my first wedding, an intimate celebration as the national lockdown was in full swing. Each day since I've grown as a person and as a photographer to shoot weddings full-time today.


I've met some remarkable people and built relationships that will last a lifetime. I'll forever be thankful for all the people who crossed my path and shared in my photography journey.


But hold on to your seats, because THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING!
