HI, I'm micaela
I believe in kindness, authenticity and living with intention & I think you can plan a wedding with all three!
When I’m not working you’ll find me behind a sewing machine, watching Gilmore Girls, the Office or Ghosts for the millionth time or walking through the park with my twin boys.
A BIT OF BACKGROUND
I was raised by a single mom in Durban, South Africa and spent my 20s being an exchange student twice – living in Switzerland & Georgia, (in America) for a year at a time.
Learning how to be with different groups of people, build relationships quickly and document my adventures has made me perfectly suited to my job as a photographer!
My love for photography began with documentary street portraits and I even started Humans of Durban (based on Humans of New York). Pretty quickly I fell in love with photographing anything to do with humans and emotions.
I started being asked to shoot friends’ weddings (still my favourite weddings to shoot) and within 3 years my bookings increased to over 30 a year, including several international weddings (Zimbabwe, Australia, America, Costa Rica and Angola). I even had a few features in national press and the Huffington Post!
I’m married to Dylan, a fellow Hufflepuff, who has endless patience when it comes to my camera in his face. We got married in 2019 and went on tour! We had three weddings (and one legal ceremony) with our families all over the world.
Our idea of a perfect weekend is binge watching a true crime documentary series, a board game or two and hanging out with our cat, Dame Maggie.
In 2023, we welcomed our twin boys into our lives, which has only made me more eager to document as much as possible!
