Welcome to my world of wedding photography! My name is Ben Viljoen, and I’m a South African photographer based in the beautiful town of Parys. I’m married to the love of my life and photography partner, Cindy, and together we have two beautiful children who bring endless joy to our lives.

 

When I’m not photographing weddings, I can usually be found indulging in my other passions – fly fishing, birding, playing golf, turning wood, and sometimes daydreaming about random home designs. But no matter what I’m doing, my camera is never far from my side, ready to capture the beauty and magic of life.

 

For over 15 years, I’ve had the privilege of documenting some of the most beautiful love stories and intimate moments between couples. Each wedding I photograph is a unique expression of love, and I strive to capture that essence in every shot.

 

My love for the African landscape and wildlife is reflected in my work, and I’m always seeking out new and exciting locations to shoot. Whether I’m capturing the majesty of a Jackalberry tree in the bushveld or the intimate moments between a bride and groom in the heart of Parys, my passion for photography shines through in every image.

 

In addition to my photography work, I also have a background in graphic design, which has given me a keen eye for detail and a love for creating beautiful, artistic images. My goal is to create images that not only capture your special day but also reflect your unique personalities and style.

 

So whether you’re planning an intimate wedding in the suburbs of Johannesburg or a lavish celebration on the African savannah, I would be honoured to tell your love story through my lens. Let’s create something beautiful together!

“…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.”

“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!

Shantél & Jaco | Parys
