It would be easy for me to tell you about me & my passion for photography, but it might be more useful to hear from other people that have used my services…

The wedding day….

So we all know about fairytale weddings and happy ever after…..but we never talk about the dreaded planning…..

Where to get married, Who will cater, Who will be do the music, Who to design dress, Who to do hair, Who to do make-up and then…..

The most important of all…..the photographer…

So my search started and I knew this (for me) is the most important part of wedding planning – why?   This is all you have left over after hung-over guests have left, food, wine and table decorations are a vague memory and all flower arrangements have been destroyed by the “last night’s funny acts”.  Everyone tries hard to remember the bride’s dress and…’who did the ceremony again?’

To my rescue came Francois van Zyl, an old friend and colleague.

What I appreciated most was his artist eye, his patience and creativity.  I knew he was good, but had no idea what to expect. He made me laugh…he made me nervous….he made me excited….he made me beautiful!!!!!

When the rain fell down for a few minutes before the wedding, he used it to create a cheerful pic.  When the sunset breathed down his neck, he used it to create romance.

How I can best describe his work……he showed the camera exactly how to capture the precious love of two people without lying.  He captured the essence of US.

Thanks to Francois!! Now I can show the world how beautiful the day was and remind the guests how perfect every second was.

Thanks a mil Francois, our wedding photos are extremely beautiful! You know we are a bit camera shy & not natural posers, but you really surprised us. We’re getting complements from everyone.

We are extremely happy & your work is highly recommended!

What can we say; the work of Francois v Zyl is out of this world!!! Our photos are a “Dream Creation” just like the name of his business is stating!! He makes you feel at ease when taking photos.  The day when we received our photos neither my husband nor I could wait to open the “little black box” that contained our photos!! It felt like an early Christmas gift!

From the first photo till the last one we were speechless, for the photos was truly amazing, more than we could have asked for!!!

We think Francois ranks higher then any of the top photographers in Bloemfontein!!!  Our photos will always be a “Dream Creation”, thanks to Francois van Zyl

When we were to decide who our photographer would be for our wedding photos – there was no doubt that it would be anyone else but Francois. He went with us beforehand to explore the options for scenery at our venue.

This made it all very easy on our wedding day, as we knew exactly where we wanted to take photos.

I was very comfortable with Francois and had a lot of fun taking photo’s, he really do something special and have a nice eye for that something different.

Our wedding day is so full of special memories that we will remember the most beautiful day of our lives forever!

Thank you for capturing each joyful, teary moment in such a creative way. Thank you for the relaxed, but very professional way in which you did so.

When we decided that we wanted the background of the forest for our wedding ceremony, we realized that we would need somebody who would be able to appreciate the atmosphere of the fairy forest and make the best use of it. You are an artist and the best photographer we could have hoped for!

For the most wonderful event such as our wedding day to be captured on camera, we would not use anybody else but Francois. To let my camera-shy husband relax is a challenge – and Francois achieved this with great ease. He is a true artist. Not only are the compositions of the photos simply beautiful, he also managed to capture the joy & emotions of the day.

We truly received value for our money and his professional & friendly approach made everything so much easier.

Any bride can leave her wedding photos in Francois’ capable hands

Once again, thank you
