About Me

Maryke Albertyn - International Wedding Photographer

My philosophy as a photographer:

I have an obsession with documenting moments and memories. Scrapbooks filled with tickets and travel notes, a desktop stacked with photos from all my adventures – no matter how small. Every detail neatly kept as a reminder of a life fully lived.

As a wedding photographer, I help my clients to capture and maintain the memories from one of their greatest adventures yet. You will see me eagerly snapping away at even the smallest details at your wedding. The lace trim on your dress, Dad wiping a tear as you say your vows or Granny sneaking a tequila shot at the reception. It’s the little moments, on such a big day, which can often go unnoticed or are forgotten once the excitement dies down. For me, its one of the most rewarding feelings in the world: Being able to play such an integral role in preserving your precious memories.

“I am going to make everything around me beautiful – that will be my life” – Elsie de Wolfe

“Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” – 1 Cor 10:33

A little bit more about me

I grew up in a small town, barefoot and always with a camera nearby. I soon spread my wings to travel and explore more of this gorgeous country that we live in. After school, I studied Fine Arts, with a focus on Fashion Design. I went on to design bridal gowns, always keeping my photography close to my heart. From there my photography hobby grew & I started doing as many possible shoots for friends & family. The rest, as they say, is history.

I am a hopeless romantic with a deep love for adventures, craft beer and photography.

I shamelessly shed a tear at almost every single wedding I attend (as photographer or guest).

I absolutely love traveling and meeting new people. (I now happily do both, with weddings all over)

And I love the outdoors, surfing and sailing.

So that’s me, in a nutshell. If you would like to know more about my work and the packages I offer, you can get in touch with me here.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
