Lauren Pretorius


Real and raw moments are important to me, and this is why I take a non-intrusive approach to photographing your wedding day as i prefer to capture those 'real' and unposed moments, however should there be a spot of perfect light, i may ask you to go stand there for some beautiful portrait/couple photographs.

My work is about so much more than creating a series of pinterest perfect images. Its about the real-ness of your wedding day; the moments of laughter, and the moments when the emotions become to much. Moments of love, silliness and those moments of complete and utter euphoria.. The missed moments and the love shared between two families.


I love meeting people and would love to tell your wedding story as honestly as possible.

Thank you for coming to my little corner of the internet, I hope you like what you have seen so far! 


My name is Lauren. I am a born and bred Capetonian, animal lover, plant hoarder, adventure seeker and of course, a photographer.


When I am not photographing weddings I like to spend my time taking my dogs for walks in the park, hiking, drinking wine, playing card games and collecting unusual plants. I am also a volunteer wild land firefighter and spend a lot of time in the hot season, on the fire line! I  take too many photographs of my cats and I am obsessed with dinosaurs and podcasts.


My photographic journey started in 2006 in high school, and after many years of studying, assisting and second shooting with other photographers, I photographed my first wedding in 2014 and have been madly in love with photographing them ever since. I left my full time job in 2016 and am incredibly lucky to be photographing weddings full time, since then. I actually photographed my 100th wedding on the 30th of November, 2019.


Having the opportunity to photograph a wedding, is something so special and something so incredible. Not only is each wedding COMPLETELY unique, i love the whirlwind of emotions and the little moments going on in-between everything.

I am often asked to describe my style which sometimes can be tricky, but if i had to use only three words, i would say that my work is;
