HELLO + WELCOME
My name is Ronel. I am the proud owner of Petronella Studios (as well as two adorable and 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 manage to always see the light and bright side at any wedding, where I then focus on taking that good energy with me throughout the whole day.
Speaking of focus; I also aim to focus on the chaos, the calm, the vibe, the essence of your wedding, whilst paying loads of attention to all the details - from meeting you all the way to the delivery of the photos.
Random fact: I am very left-handed + very right-brained.
If you are looking for
a photographer who
is a bit crazy (in a good way), believes in unposed photos,
and lives for art galleries,
then you have come to
the right place my friend.
I have been specializing in Wedding Photography for almost 10 years now and I absolutely freaking love every moment of it; even including the occasional late night editing.
I love it all: from the getting ready photos, champagne cheers' on the bed, crying in the ceremony, informal canapé shots, the dogs (my fav part), intimate couple photos, all the way to the 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.
