Testimonials

Christelle Rall, Cape Town, South Africa

One of the most stressful things when planning our wedding day was deciding who would be our photographer. After much research and speaking to family and friends in the Garden Route, Christelle was a clear recommendation. From the initial contact, to choosing our package, engagement shoot, timeline planning, on-the day collaboration and all the photos that have followed afterwards, we had the best time!

We are absolutely in awe of Christelle's skill, professionalism and ability to capture images in a way that not only conveys the emotion (because boy did she capture some stunners!), but also makes us feel as if we were clearly reliving the memory through the photo. Nothing felt staged (from both our engagement shoot to our wedding day) and we so enjoyed how Christelle let us absolutely be ourselves and worked the magic in and around that.

Christelle, we don't have enough words to say thank you, but thank you indeed! Jeán & Stephanie

I went through a long list of photographers for my wedding in the garden route, also baring in mind that I would've flown the best one to my wedding if need be. I found Christelle on the internet and had a look at her profile I was in absolute awe that such an incredible photographer resided here in South Africa and close to my venue! She was truly incredible to work with capturing every part and moment of our wedding day. It was so much fun working with her and getting in the best couple shots! She creates an incredible story with her pictures. We are very grateful we found her! x Stefano and Chanel x

Christelle was the photographer at my best friends sister in laws wedding 2 years before got married. She captured my husband and myself in such a natural pose that perfectly illustrated our relationship, with us aware of her taking it. When it came to choosing a photographer for our wedding we didn't look anywhere else. She captured every moment of our wedding day so perfectly! The web wedding gallery we received of the photos is extremely professional and well organised. We chose the package that included a coffee table book. We choose 300 photos for the book. She put it together so well and added photos that went to well with the ones we had chosen when it came time for us to proof and edit the book we didn't change a thing.

We absolutely LOVE each and every photo that Christelle took of both our engagement and wedding, they are incredible. Christelle has serious talent and we were so excited to receive our photo's as we got to relive the best day of our lives. Christelle has seriously exceeded our expectations. Thank you for going above and beyond, you were so relaxed and friendly, making us feel comfortable especially since my now Husband doesn't enjoy taking photo's. Christelle you have really brought out the inner model out of my husband. You captured us naturally and even got me laughing from my belly a.k.a my ugly laugh which is a skill on its own - this is one of my husbands favourite photo as he has tried to capture it in the 8 years we have been together. We will definitely be recommending you to anyone and everyone as your photo's are one of a kind. I have gone through my photo's about 50 times. Your creativity and eye for art is not limited as my hair was used as a prop. There are no words that truly express how honored we were to have you capture our special day. Thank you Christelle

I did not expect our wedding pictures to be so incredible. Christelle captured every aspect of our wedding, from portraits to group dance-offs. I cant stop looking at our wedding pictures and wishing that we could go back to the day and pause time. Christelle made me feel so comfortable and we both loved working with her. Thanks so much!

Christelle Rall, Cape Town, South Africa

My sister-in-law spoke about how amazing Christelle's pictures are and I sent her an enquiry. From the first telephone call with Christelle, I knew we had been lucky enough to get the perfect photophrapher. She is kind, understanding and incredibly patient both before and especially on the day. She has a wonderful way and I am so happy she was there for a calm head when it was needed at times.

When the photos came through, I couldn't stop smiling through my tears. She captured the whole day in pictures the way I felt in my heart. I was overwhelmed by their beauty and artistry. She is gifted in all of these ways I have mentioned. She will always be special to us because of the memories captured for us.

We were very lucky to have Christelle capture our wedding photo's in 2017. Little did we know that she would be taking our family photo's in 2018. Her calm and warm demeanor makes it easy to relax and forget that there is somebody taking pictures. When it comes to your wedding day, you want someone you can trust with your special day and when it comes to family photo's you want somebody you can trust with your special little one - in both cases Christelle is definitely the answer. I absolutely love her work and the memories she has captured for us.

Christelle Rall, Cape Town, South Africa

We absolutely love our pictures, they are all we hoped for and more. As we eloped and our families weren't with us, the pictures were even more important, and we wanted some that captured the emotions and the atmosphere of that beautiful day. Christelle did an amazing job of doing just that! Despite the rain she created those truly emotional, stunning, beautiful and heart-warming pictures. We couldn't be happier!

Christelle Rall, Cape Town, South Africa

It was an absolute pleasure working with Christelle Rall! We could not have hoped for more in terms of our pictures and capturing our special day. She made us feel comfortable and we felt like we were in our element. Christelle really has a great eye and she is an artist at heart. This is reflected in all her work. Thivern and I want to say a huge thank you and we hope to work with her again one day!

For our Namib desert wedding, we could not have asked for a more professional, kind and friendly photographer than Christelle. No desert heat (32 degrees) or family holiday (New Years) deterred her from capturing our special event. We think the pictures speak for themselves!!! Thanks once a again for making our destination wedding a once in a lifetime experience - for all of us! ;)

Christelle Rall, Cape Town, South Africa

Receiving beautiful wedding photos is one thing, but what Christelle did was far more magical. I get transported back to that day and relive all those emotions all over again everytime I look at our wedding pictures.  I love how your photographs evoke emotions in all of us and not only just a memory.

Christelle Rall, Cape Town, South Africa

If you are looking for a well-established and confident wedding photographer, then look no further than Christelle! She went the extra mile from start to finish. Her professional, calm, and efficient demeanor, made for the most memorable photographs. Everyone at the wedding loved her! Even our engagement shoot was so much fun. We loved the way she was almost “invisible”, but captured those memories most precious to us. We could not have wished for a better photographer.

Christelle Rall, Cape Town, South Africa

Thank you Christelle for making our wedding day and photos breathtakingly beautiful!

You truly are the best and come highly recommended!

Christelle was the photographer at our wedding. In Harare, Zimbabwe in August 2017. My wife and I were mesmerised at her mind blowing skills. She displayed some outstanding tricks with lighting. The photos that she done for us were out of this world. I’m not an expert at photography, but I would say she’s probably one of the best in the world.
