Wedding photojournalism | About us | Ben Viljoen Photography

more about 


We have over 12 years of experience documenting hundreds of weddings all over South Africa and internationally in our photo-journalistic style of photography. We create beautiful, absolutely unique, and often humorous photographs of honest moments during the wedding day that can never ever be posed or directed.

We know what to anticipate on the day, and where to find those moments. These are moments that are real, evocative, and that captures a gesture or a movement that speaks the truth about those you love dearly.


“Dear Ben and Cindy,

WOW! WOW! WOW! We have no words to describe how blown away we are with our wedding photos! You did an incredible job and we are so, so happy. We really couldn’t have selected better photographers to capture our special day. Thank you so very much!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 “

“…you have captured the best moments of our special day and they will live long in our memory. I thought I would have to rely on memory in years to come to “really” remember just how breathtaking I thought Laura was on the day and how much fun it was, but Ben you’ve managed to exceed our expectations and get my wife, family and friends just as I remember them for which I am very grateful.”

Bryson & Laura | Thandeka Lodge, Limpopo

“Hi Ben & Cindy,

Ons kan nie genoeg na ons fotos kyk nie. Julle het voorwaar elke spesiale oomblik vir ons vasgevang om verewig te kan koester.

Ben jy het ‘n ongelooflike talentvolle oog en visie om emosies in fotos in te bring. Jou fotos het lewe en vertel ‘n storie. Ons het nie ‘n video van ons troue nodig nie want deur ons fotos kan ons die gees van ons troudag weer herleef…

…ons fotos lyk eg en vertel van opregte menslikheid.

Beste keuse ooit was om julle as fotograwe te kon hê!
