About Us
      Everything You Need to Know

      We started Forever Folk in 2015 as a project we could do to together as a couple, now we tackle this endeavour of ours as husband and wife. To us, it is not a business but project we hold very dear to our hearts. We decided very early on in its inception that we would never do more than one wedding on a weekend, neither would we do more than a certain amount of weddings a year. This keeps both us and you happy.

      We’re also not strictly only wedding photographers, we’re lifestyle photographers and we choose to see what we photograph as a narrative. Our job is to do ‘people watching’, we love to capture things like your first dance, but we pride ourselves in also showing you how your dad, sister, friend or your child stood in awe watching you. Your pictures should spark memories. We’re not in the business of just producing pretty pictures, to be quite honest we’ll never prop you up against a tree or make you miss a good laugh because we’re trying to get our portfolio shot. During the time we spend with you, we’re allies. We’ve always parted with couples, businesses, and people, only to feel like that person in some way, shape or form has enriched our lives.

      Forever Folk not only implies that we’re the folks that make your memories last forever but it also references a lifestyle. To live simply, to love simply and to never lose sight what really matters.

      Rita and André. There really is no way to thank you enough for capturing our day the way you did. From the first coffee I had with Rita, I knew that this was the perfect fit. You two went above and beyond before, on and after our wedding to scout, organise and make magic. You understood what we were about from the outset and we can honestly say our day would not have been the same without you. Your photos speak for themselves, but the way you made us feel - comfortable, relaxed and at home - was amazing. Posing for photos in the middle of Joburg was a daunting prospect but damn it felt completely normal with you guys! You are incredible, brilliant and so much fun!

      Forever Folk is honestly the best photographers you will ever have. Not even just for a wedding. They put in so much more effort than required, pay so much attention to detail, and are so talented that you'll look at the photo's and wonder why you're not a professional model. Truly two of the most amazing people earth has to offer.

      It was like having two old friends at our wedding! We had a great connection with Rita and André and we were sad when the time came for them to go home as we wanted them to stay and party with us! Effortless experience with amazing memories captured for us to cherish forever!

      Tempest and Chris

      We're so glad we chose Forever Folk for our wedding. We broke with tradition a bit, and they were very patient and relaxed about this. They totally embraced the unique and unplanned aspects of our day, producing really artful photographs amidst the chaos. They were a pleasure to deal with at every stage of the process, and we are so pleased with the final product.

      Anelle and Tyron

      From beginning to end we loved working with you. You gave us an eternal gift of the most beautiful photo's, thank you!
