Your journey with us…

Discover a world of romance and elegance for the adventurous at heart.


We create timeless, honest images of epic celebrations far and wide for the creative at heart…from intimate elopements in the African bush to elaborate receptions at some of the most mesmerizing locations in South Africa and Europe.


As we seek to create images full of emotion and genuine beauty, we will guide you through the creative process and be a constant source of calm, leading you through the posed portraits, carrying a veil when needed and helping you during the day as you celebrate a lifetime commitment.


We approach your wedding as an observer, documenting the priceless moments as they unfold, as well as being creative directors capturing details and classic portraits in a more curated manner.


We offer a range of beautifully crafted linen covered albums printed on textured, archival art paper and have a range of printed products for you to choose from. We would love to talk to you and hear how you envision your special celebration and how we can photograph all those once in a lifetime moments.

“Professional, Inspirational and Authentic”


If we have to describe Dust and Dreams Photography these are the words we would use! 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 so important to us as it has a big effect on the photos.
