HELLO + WELCOME
My name is Ronel. I am the proud owner of Petronella Studios (as well as two adorable/busy labradors).
I am a strictly-non-posey, documentary style wedding photographer based in Cape Town, South Africa.
Even though I take my job extremely seriously, I somehow always manage to see the funny side in any given situation. A.K.A. There's always time for a joke.
Random fact: I am very left-handed + right-brained.
If you are looking for
a photographer who
is a bit crazy, believes
in unposed photos, and
lives for art galleries,
then you have come to
the right place my friend.
I've been a Wedding Photographer for almost 10 years now (totally giving my age away)
and I absolutely freaking love it! Everything from the getting ready photos, drinking of champagne, crying in the ceremony, drinking champagne again, couple photos, all the way to the party.
Man-oh-man, do I love a good party!
Even though I'm documenting weddings in the most Southern Part of the world, if you buy me a plane ticket to anywhere outside of South Africa, I'll shoot your wedding absolutely free.
Head on over to my Contact Page if you are keen on collaborating with me on this very
exciting non-posey wedding journey.
