You're getting MARRIED...

Planning a wedding is such an exciting time & there are so many things to think about. Choosing a wedding photographer is a big decision & I'd love to help make that decision easier for you.

I am passionate about what I do & believe you deserve photo's that capture YOU … your joy, your laughter, your relationship.

That's why the wedding experience is so important to me. Your photos are important, but first and foremost – YOU’RE important!  From our first conversation, to every interaction after that, I'll get to know you so that I can capture the beauty of your wedding day in a way that showcases you and your unique love story.  

This day is all about you and your fiancé and capturing what's important to the two of you



I can’t help myself. I love my job!

i'm a workaholic.

My heart will always belong to Africa, but Australia claims a little more of it each day.

i grew up in South Africa.

Can you tell?

i love Details.

Working with easy going brides that laugh loudly and love deeply is my calling. The brides that have thought just as much about their wedding day as the years they get to spend being married to their best friend.

what it means to be a sugar tree bride


Sure the Sugar Tree bride loves all the pretty details, but she values a loving marriage even more. She's ready for a stress-free day and genuine, natural photos of this high point in her love story with her prince charming. 

what she values

Sugar Tree brides know that they want the kind of photos that will bring a smile to her face & warmth to her heart whenever she looks at them. Photo's that speak of their continually evolving love story and the day that started the best chapter.

Everyone's story is beautiful and unique and I'd be honoured to bring yours to life.

You like what you see and you've reached out via email.

The next step is to schedule a relaxed get-together (or video chat if we can’t meet in person) so that we can begin to get to know each other.
I want to find out more about YOU - We’ll chat about your love story, your hopes for your Big Day, your vision of your wedding album - and all of that will colour what I capture on your big day!
You want EVERYTHING about your special day to be perfect - and that includes one of the most important keepsakes - your wedding photos!

 1. Let's Chat

If you know in your heart you're ready to move forward, we'll get to making things official.
I've made signing your contract and paying your retainer a super easy process and once this is done, your date will be scheduled in my diary and our exciting journey to your wedding day begins as we're officially official!

2.Make it official!

Let the fun begin! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. And don’t worry... I’ll walk you through EVERYTHING! Helping my couples get comfortable and feel like themselves, is my biggest goal. After the first 20 minutes of your session, you will be pros. GUARANTEED. Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”, you will be killing it after 20 minutes have gone by! That’s all the time we need to get rid of nerves and start capturing the joy of this new season of your life together!

3.engagement session

8 weeks before your wedding, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared for your wedding! From the meaning behind any special details to the timeline & the people that mean the most to you. 

This ensures that I can capture all the unique & treasured details & people that hold special significance in your life, so that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! You know all of those dreamy portraits, fun friend shots, and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine??? This is the stage where we plan all that out.

4.wedding prep

The day is finally here - YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!! All our prep means that you can simply enjoy this special day knowing that I have everything under control.

I'm here to capture everything & help you soak it all in too.
This day is going to be a blur to you & so I make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. One of my favourite parts of the wedding day is portrait time with the newlyweds & getting to meet your families and best friends!! 

5. the wedding day

Just a few weeks after your wedding you'll be able to relive the day all over again with your online gallery. 

As a special bonus all Sugar Tree couples get a sneak peek of their special day within a week of the wedding with a featured blog post of highlight images that can be shared with all your family and friends.

How it Works

I don't know how to describe such a unique business, but the words passion, professionalism and authentic come to mind.
I felt like a beautiful princess while taking our photos & Mandy never missed an opportunity to encourage us & make us feel like supermodels❤. I could rest assured knowing that she was always on the move getting every perfect shot.
Thank you Sugar Tree Photography for your passion & professionalism on our special day. I'm so grateful for the gift of amazing wedding photos & an unforgettable wedding day.

It was an absolute dream working with Mandy on our wedding day, she captured all our precious moments and has given us memories for a lifetime! We are both not great in front of the camera, but Mandy made it feel so natural and effortless. I can highly recommend her, she really takes the stress out of the wedding day!
