We wanted to formally extend a huge thank you to you for the amazing pictures.
Your style of photography as well as your character shines out from these images and, we feel that the best of it all was that you were able to capture us in our usual state. The images doesn’t look staged or like we were trying too hard, it captures us in our rawness. None of that would be possible if it weren’t for you and your humorous personality coupled with your awesome talent. We were also surprised and impressed by our memory box as we received more than expected, not to mention your sophisticated flash drive. Thank you so much, we are excited for our future photo sessions with you and for you to be capturing our lifelong journey!

Wow. What an awesome photographer… Not just professional, but has a vibrant personality which rubs off on you. She made our Bridal party shoot, to be a walk in the park. She allowed me personally to feel comfortable in my own skin😁And of course making my friend (bride to be) and bridal crew look more beautiful… She knew exactly how to deal with each personality of our bridal crew, and that to me speaks volumes. ❤️👏 She knows what her clients wants. Michelle thanx for boosting my confidence.
“It is the photographer, and not the camera, that is the instrument” Michelle has this amazing way of capturing the best moments, at just the right time. As a person, she is warm, and lovely and makes you feel totally at ease in front of the camera, as though she has known you her whole life. I’ve always wanted to capture as many moments as possible professionally of my kids and our lives, as they, and we grow older and I’ve found the perfect person to do it. Michelle’s photography is of such high quality that she will come very highly recommended by me and my family. She has done a family shoot, maternity shoot and newborn shoot for us and I never intend on using anyone else. Her pictures and her edits are done from such a personal level, that just looking at the images allows you to feel the moment… I cannot even rate her service because there is just no measure. Thank you Mich for capturing my family so beautifully, in a way that we will be able to look back and remember all the moments gone by like it was yesterday. Here’s to many many many more sessions in front of your camera, Kyle and I are so excited for our baby’s photoshoot coming up in August!
Getting photographed by MIchelle is the most fun, special, exciting and amazing experience! And the way she captures your special moment is so intimate and natural. I really couldn’t recommend her more! Xx
Michelle Lategan, where do I begin. Firstly my wedding song was from John Legend – All of Me, and that set the course of the day. Michelle was a legend on our wedding day. She captured all our special moments and all the important people in my heart. The most amazing part about having such an awesome photographer was that I could be myself and feel my real emotions and that was captured. Every person that was involved in my wedding was prayed for and God only gave me the best so it was no surprise to me that my photo moments were awesome. When someone loves their work it shows in all the facets of the being. Michelle you have added so much colour, love and emotion to my wedding and that in itself is an amazing thing and a gift from God.
Love your new friend,
“Hey there! So nice to meet you!” use to be a procedural gesture until the day I met Mich.. oh! What a pleasure it was to meet this enthusiastic lady who would text me at random times of the day with ideas for my shoot- she seemed more excited then I was! Long gone are the you-pitch-I-snatch, photographer brace yourself for a woman with a profound talent and pungent taste in what she does. This along with her beautiful persona makes her a photographer right on top of my suggestions list.. all .the.time!
A very good friend of mine booked Michelle and being the person I am, I did some thorough research – going through her portfolio like it was no one’s business. I discovered her remarkable work and couldn’t help but book her too. Her work still continues to amaze me, even after our engagement shoot and wedding. The way you manage to capture a moment makes my heart skip a beat. Our pictures are amazing and by far the best work I have ever witnessed. Got crazy love for you Mich! xxx
Wow, wow, wow are the only words to describe you, my talented friend. The family photo shoot that you did for us far exceeded my imagination. You have such an eye for detail and capture the most beautiful moments and memories. This was particularly special for us as living overseas our family do not get much time with us or Gracie and you captured the most special moments which my family can now treasure forever. You were so patient with little Gracie and your enthusiasm and love for what you do excited the entire family. We will definitely be having more family photo shoots on our trips home to SA.
Love, Lauren de Villiers
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say WOW, WOW, WOW! These are the most amazing pictures of our family I have ever seen. Shaun and I are very shy people for the camera, we had a wonderful experience on our photo shoot with you. Your warm demeanor put our boys at ease quickly, and therefor the session was quite enjoyable for us and the kids. We were so happy with how great the photos turned out too bad we didn’t know you years ago when we got married. So once again thank you so much for these special pictures with my little family. You have a gift for capturing beauty in every shot you take. We will treasure these pictures always, and we plan to use you for all our future family photo shoots. (And promise to be on time!)
Shaun, Reece, Max and me xxxx
