Hi, I am Vicky van der Watt (Vix).
I am a photographer from the KZN midlands, South Africa. I am married and a mom of two boys, and have my whole family close-by which is priceless. I lived in the UK for 8 years, and missed them too much, so I am here! I am a people's person and have always loved to photograph everything, so it comes very naturally to me. I adore weddings, and am a hopeless romantic! I love the little details, whether it is a raindrop on a leaf or the little toes of a newborn, or the glistening of a new engagement ring on your finger. I notice it all.
Why you should Book me for your Wedding
If you are looking for a genuine, competent, down-to-earth and professional photographer with a keen eye for beautiful, natural and emotive photos, look no further, that's me!
I love to start with capturing the little details you have incorporated into the day. Through the preparation process before the ceremony, I am observant and catch the behind the scenes moments you don't want to forget, as well as the classic portraits you will love! The ceremony is a special one for me, I might cry a little behind the camera if you catch me, but I am always ready to catch and portray those feelings you had when stepping into the church, through your images. Family and friends also play a big part on the day and I like to incorporate them into all the fun and social photos and as I am a real people's person, I am very relatable, and also to your special ones!
At the creative session, which a lot of couples are nervous about, I make you feel at ease, so don't worry about having to be too stiff and posey! You can expect me to be in your corner on your special day, and I will make you feel at ease. I also love the adventurous, fun and crazy day that is a wedding, the unexpected things are also to be embraced, and I am always keen for something different too, just give me a heads-up and we are good to go!
In a nutshell, you will get a comprehensive gallery with a mixture of candid, classic and beautiful images, and I will be there to capture all the memories for you to enjoy, when the day is over.
“Wow wow wow Vicky, you have done an incredible job, such beautiful photos and such a large gallery. Thanks for capturing such details. Love your work.”
