About Us

Our Story

Oh Darling started out as a hobby in May 2014, soon became a yearning in my life. I have always been in love with whimsical and vintage inspired photography, and portray this in my photo-shoots. My journey started in May 2015

We like to look at the world through a different lens, capturing unique and precious photographs. Natural is always best, we adore the smiles, the little snorts, giggles, funny faces and freckles of each and every client.

At Oh Darling we work mostly with natural light because of the whimsical effect it gives. With our clients, we pick out unique locations to suit their personalities, as well as the style of the shoot. We specialise in wedding and portrait photography.

Being photographers is such a wonderful blessing. We get to capture special moments for our clients which they can relive every day. All our work is done with great passion, love and specialised skills.

Oh Darling, let’s be adventurous

I am a wifey, hopeless romantic, graphic designer, wilderness explorer, photographer and owner of Oh Darling Photography. I believe in working hard, having fun, building good relationships and making a difference. The impossible and forever-afters enchant me.

Andries van Zyl

I am the second-shooter, and helper on set. You will see me hanging from tree tops holding gear, making the kids laugh, and leopard crawling in the grass to get the perfect angled shot. I’m a nature loving, adventure junkie & outdoors kinda guy.
