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.

Your wedding day is a special day and deserves the best of both worlds. Therefore your day should be captured unobtrusively, every step of the way. Putting a personalised " My Photo Book Album" together, is such a highlight for me as it's an emotional investment that holds its value over time.
My mission is to create a work of art from the emotion, excitement and beauty, of the most romantic day of your life, and to capture those special moments by providing my clients with memories that can be preserved for a lifetime to come. I strive to deliver a prompt & professional service, and I love what I do, which shows in my work.
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.

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
