About Me

I am a mother of three boys (three boys, being punished for my sins!) and have been a fan of photography for years. I started shooting weddings seriously about five years ago. With the arrival of my twins, I decided to reduce my working hours in order to spend more time at home with my boys. Using photography to make up for the loss of income was a natural progression.

This is where you will be able to catch regular excerpts of what I am up to...

It is not everyday that you get asked "Where do you want the plane?".

The one thing that I love about Africa is the weather never disappoints.  
It was  a dapper day filled with puffy clouds, a gorgeous couple,  vintage props, a couple of laughs and a whole lot of adorable images!

Thank you David and Eloise I had a great time photographing you Vintage Plane inspired shoot.

From a client perspective Winter isn't traditionally considered to be the best time for a shoot, but from where I'm sitting it's by far the optimal season of the year.  

I truly relish shooting in the cooler months, as there's something really yummy about how the sun's radiance adds a gentle drama and tone to any theme and setting.   

Melissa and Matt, and let me not forget their beautiful dog, Bella, booked their engagement shoot in the chilly month of July and although Bella was more interested in scurrying around, than in posing for photographs, I was thrilled with the mellow lighting and the wonderful images of our two legged models.

So looking forward to your wedding in September!

Andrea, Andrea, Andrea !!!!
What is next ?
Next thing you know you will be extradited to the US or Australia because you are wasting your talent in this country. I think your clients should start paying you in dollars ( not Zim ones ).
I love the sunlight on the tail shot.
Best regards

On another note, there seems to be a problem with my automated response to pricing requests. If you do not receive a pricelist within 24 hours please let me know. Price requests are to be directed to prices@andreacarlylephotography.co.za.
