Birgit Hoffmann has been taking photos and videos at weddings for over 30 years in South Africa, various African countries (the likes of Malawi) and also in Europe. Her flair for photography with a difference tends to go more for spontaneous shots, capturing the excitement of the occasion whilst bringing out the personality of her subjects with sometimes casual, sometimes outrageous, but definitely different poses. Birgit can speak English, German & Portuguese, she also has an assistant who is able to speak a number of African languages which is key in making people feel comfortable on their special day.

WENDY VAN HEERDEN, Pretoria based professional photographer with more than 11 years experience in wedding photography.
I give personal attention to all brides by being punctual, relaxed, reliable, friendly and easy to work with. This makes you feel comfortable and you will thus have natural, spontaneous photographs of this momentous occasion.
Where possible, I prefer to do photographs of the bride before the ceremony, giving the bridal couple more time to spend with their family and friends at the reception. No need for panic on rainy days, I have a portable studio for your convenience. High quality material and professional printing ensures that the quality of the photographs is of a professional standard.
Imported Italian albums available to compliment your photographs. Each photograph in the album is mounted with antique gold borders and matching cases are available. Feel free to contact me for any photographic services
Avianto was born in 1997 from the idea of creating the perfect wedding venue in Johannesburg for what must be one of life’s greatest celebrations. Having captured the hearts of the discerning bride with the Banquet Hall, a second venue, The Ballroom, was created with some more versatility accommodating splendid corporate celebrations and Sunday lunches. Dedicated conference convention centers as well as hotel rooms followed with the introduction of Café Cielo to accommodate the need for leisure guests and leisure dining. The Avianto Hotel in Muldersdrift Johannesburg will continue to expand to the north along the Crocodile River, onto what used to be the old Syringa Spa & Picnic Resort. Have a look at the beautiful venues we hire out on our gallery pages.
Shooting in a natural photojournalistic style on location is what I most enjoy. My favourite subjects to photograph are weddings and lifestyle events, babies & kids, kids parties, weddings, family events and steam trains. I choose to shoot on location as I like my clients to be relaxed and feel comfortable without the constraints of studio walls and intimidating lights. It’s all about capturing your special moments and creating your treasured memories. Capturing the personality and characters of the people I shoot.
Each wedding celebration, whether it would be an elaborate, large or intimate, traditional or non-traditional wedding should capture the distinctiveness, personality and style of each individual bride. I firmly believe that your wedding needs to reflect your personality and style, making it yours uniquely, alleviating all unnecessary stress and leaving you to enjoy every moment of the venture.
Creating a festive mood and adding a personal touch, takes a wedding from ordinary to extra-ordinary, creating a casual elegance with the perfect ambience and atmosphere and setting a different trend with each wedding. Planning in close collaboration with you’ I will provide and guide you with the latest cutting-edge designs, styles, trends and inspirational ideas, ensuring you a professional service at ABSOLUTE all times.
My ability to combine wisdom and heart, creating a real-life cele…
