about us.

kind hearted. steadfast. set apart.
we are a team of closely knit wedding and lifestyle photographers based in Johannesburg, South Africa, and who likes to drink endless late night cups of tea around the fireplace. okay so maybe we don’t have a fireplace, but that would be really great. we are the kind of people who don’t care what you wear or how you look, but looks into your heart where the true beauty lies. but don’t worry, we also clean up quite nicely and won’t rock up on a shoot with our pajama pants, promise.

happy feedback

a word or two from our dearest clients

I give dochter. 5 stars. Not only did our photographs come out great, we also had sooo much fun shooting on the day. We felt comfortable in front of the camera, dochter was well organised and detail-orientated - everything you would want from your photographer. I highly recommend their photographic services! Thumbs up!

For someone who isn't naturally comfortable in front of a camera, giving 5 stars is an exception. Me and my fiancé loved working with Colani! We were made to feel relaxed during our shoot, she knew exactly what to do when and she is genuinely excited WITH her clients. It's not just a job, it's a passion and a talent. I highly recommend Dochter and can't wait for the wedding!!

Colani did a family photo shoot for us. Everything felt so effortless and natural. She is incredibly good at letting the pictures look spontaneous, joyous and natural. Thank you!!

Pallua Ackerman

I knew that you would be our wedding photographer as soon as we saw you and your husband at the Wedding Expo!! You made us feel comfortable from day one! And since then it felt like a friendship of forever!! Thank you for the amazing person you are and thank you for the best time ever... Capturing every moment of this life event! We love you!

our adventures.

collecting beautiful moments
isn’t life a strange thing? so many chapters to live, stories to tell, lessons to be learned. which is exactly why we do what we do – to help you capture and relive your most precious moments. and maybe even one day to laugh with your kids about the clothes we wore back then.

stalk us.

in a socially acceptable manner, of course
if you’re the lucky 100th mailer, we will take you out for coffee. Just kidding, we’d grab any excuse for coffee, so just mail us and make our day.
