Nelis Engelbrecht is a farm boy from a little town called Garies in the Northern Cape.Many years back he made the move and came to Cape Town to pursue his dream of becoming a Professional Photographer.Little did he know that such a blessed road was about to unravel for him.
In his own words..."God just blessed me with a talent. I am forever grateful for all the moments spent with such amazing people on my journey to become the photographer that I am today”.Nelis has been in the photography business professionally for over 9 years now and has earned many accolades on his road to success.
Famous for his flash photography and expert use of lighting, he is today considered, as one of the top Wedding Photographers in South Africa.
Despite all the recognition, he remains humble and down to earth.Wedding photography in particular is very special to Nelis. Being part of the love, and the coming together of families and friends is such a beautiful and special experience."It just makes you feel good inside”.
Nelis always has a great time shooting with his clients and is a natural when it comes to putting his brides and grooms at ease.He will always try to capture that Wow shot.Even if he has to carry the bride/client up a hill or over water to get the shot (like he has done many times before).
All his Wedding Packages includes a professional second shooter. Second shooters always get that shot or angle that is different and so special,where the main photographer is busy shooting something else.Second shooters also assists in creating the best lighting for the bride or couple shoot,.
Nelis keeps all images in a pouch by his side at all times till he get's home or to the office to do backups.He backs up on 3 backup drives to make double sure that your special day is kept away from danger and out of harms way.
One of the biggest headaches for a bride is to set her timeline for the day.
Nelis visits the venue in advance on the day to choose the best spots for the pictures and couple shoot. He works out exactly how much time he needs at each location and how the photos should be choreographed.He also incorporates sunset times to get your perfect sunset photos and will set up your perfect timeline so that you have one less thing to worry about.
