let's get to know each other
My name is Marni Olivier
I'm a fine art wedding & portrait photographer, based in Pretoria, with 9 years experience in wedding photography. We also love to travel, and would love to capture your wedding in Europe. Prague is my favourite city and Croatia, Italy & Switzerland are THE most beautiful countries in terms of nature and scenery. I recently added film photography to my collection to achieve those dreamy colours and there is no better feeling than receiving those film scans back from the lab after a photo session.
the husband and our videographer
Jean-Pierre (aka Jean)
Our videographer is my loving husband and best friend Jean. He is my biggest supporter, the calm to ANY storm and the most loyal person you will ever meet. We met at University while we were both studying together and only became friends when we started working together as interns at an accounting firm. Needless to say, after 5 years, we ditched the accounting world and pursued our passions as entrepreneurs. We also share a passion for travelling and dreaming up new ideas.
Second Photographer and head of our fashion range
My trustworthy assistant in most of the shoots is my amazing mother (Fransie). She has taught me everything I know and we share a love for baking, sewing, design work and basically anything creative. Fransie has many more talents and the list is simply too long to add here. One of them I must add is her ability to make friends INSTANTLY. She is my right-hand in the fashion department and you will most probably deal with her for any dress related inquiries.
At the end of the day I want us to have fun and to make it a memorable experience.
My goal is to create authentic images, capturing those special moments between loved ones or a specific milestone in your life.
I use natural light where possible and I strive to ensure that you feel comfortable in front of the camera by providing you with the necessary guidance in terms of posing and styling.
