"YOU ARE HERE TO LEARN THE SUBTLE SCIENCE AND EXACT ART OF POTION-MAKING. AS THERE IS LITTLE FOOLISH WAND-WAVING HERE, MANY OF YOU WILL HARDLY BELIEVE THIS IS MAGIC."
—Severus Snape ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Hey! I am Anandi!
I live in Pretoria with my bearded boys, Philip, the love of my life, and my best friend #philipdiebaardman. Our baby boy and two Snucher pups that I consider our first born. We go on all sorts of amazing adventures, be it the mountain in our backyard or to the cold crisp waters of the Atlantic.
I’m a lover of light, film, and black-and-white photographs. I am a hopeless romantic and connoisseur of ice cream and chocolate. Harry Potter and Friends is on a constant repeat and when I am looking for something a little darker, light-hearted murder-mystery shows for the win!
I studied photography at TUT (Jip, got the diploma and everything) and I can’t walk past something pretty without touching it. I maybe know all the words to the Spice Girls' first album and probably talk way too much... But I know that I am a little weird, really honest, and kind but I really- really love working with people.
My love for photography started at a young age and was nurtured by my history-and-photography-loving aunt (who bought me my first camera). I remember sitting in her “library” of albums looking through hundreds of family albums, amazed by the photographs and their ability to capture life on a sheet of paper.
Now a good few years later – after countless disposable cameras, a Barbie cam, 5 almost-digital point-and-shoot cameras, three old school SLRs, a Go-pro, a turquoise Polaroid, five pretty epic DSLR, and my National Diploma in Photography, and over 300 weddings ( yes, I have been doing this a while) – I proudly call myself a professional photographer.
I like to keep things simple and love pushing my own limits and the limits of photography. I especially love photographing people. My style is described as raw, emotional modern lifestyle photography with an artistic edge.
While my main focus is weddings and engagements, I am always up for lifestyle, family, traveling sessions, and creative shoots when my schedule allows it.
Couples of mine value creativity and experience and their absolute trust in me as their photographer for the most important day of their lives. Capturing it in a way that tells a story all while being your dear friend and getting to know you as a couple rather than just a client. Your time, investment, and trust in me is so valued and appreciated and I am so incredibly happy to be your photographer. Let's get to know one another better, click here to say hello.
I can't wait to tell your story.
authentic love, real connections & raw emotions.
