“Professional, Inspirational and Authentic” 

– Andrew & Cindy Bekker

If we have to describe Dust and Dreams Photography these are the words we would use!

We met Steph and Elaine at my sister-in-law’s wedding and experienced first-hand their professionalism and the quality of their photos. A few years later, when it was our turn to choose a wedding photographer, there was with no doubt in our minds! A silent unanimous decision was made.

We can truly say that we had no doubts when it came to booking Dust and Dreams. This was refreshing taking into consideration the stress that came along with wedding planning!

Dust and Dreams Photography was the second wedding booking we made, almost a year before our big day, with Welverdiend Venue being the first. With no idea where to actually begin with the wedding planning, we received an unexpected email from Steph and Elaine guiding us in the right direction. We were pleasantly surprised with the extra mile Steph and Elaine went in assisting us leading up to- and during our big day, with the smallest unthought-of details which made the biggest difference.

Their calmness during the photo sessions on our wedding day made it so comfortable to be in front of their camera lenses, which was important to us as it has a big effect on the photos.

We only realised the importance of booking experienced wedding photographers on our wedding day.

It was an awesome experience to actually be in front of the camera and being the person in the most beautiful wedding photos. We are usually shy when it comes to any photos and were very nervous to pose for photos, but it was so fun to work with Steph and Elaine and that it (almost) felt natural.

And then we received our photos…

Well, the photos were not what we’d expected, it was beyond our expectations!

We were astounded and speechless with the end result and couldn’t believe that we can really look that good (even with the rain and cloudy weather joining us).
