International Wedding Photography Award Winner – Nelis Engelbrecht 



Dear Client, please to meet you and thank you so much for your wedding inquiry.  I am so thankful for your request and hopefully will be part of your special day.  Please take some time to read through this to help you on your special day.

Before we get to our packages and pricing I first want to introduce my business to you so you will have an complete understanding about wedding photography on you special day.  There is a lot of behind the scenes preparation that I do to get the best images for my client.



Nelis Engelbrecht Photography shoot with top of the range camera equipment worth R300 000 on every wedding.  For every camera body, every lens, every card we have a backup.  To ensure the best professional product we don’t take any chances or cut corners when busy with the best day of your life. We all have heard one or more horror stories about photographers dropping their camera or loosing a memory card due to damage or internal error.  That is why Nelis Engelbrecht Photography use a direct backup system while we are  busy shooting to ensure that we do not have a card failure.  This is one of the reasons to set our clients at ease.


I keep all images in a pouch by my side at all times till we get home or office to do backups on 3 backup drives to make double sure I keep your special day away from danger and out of harm. (I even sleep with it under my cushion on travel weddings )


All my Wedding Packages includes a Professional Second Shooter worth R2500/day.  Second shooters always get that shot or angle that is different and so special where the main photographer is busy shooting something else.


Second shooters also help me to create the best lighting for your bridal or couple shoot, keeping the bride neat and dress perfect at all times.


What makes Nelis Engelbrecht Photography different from the rest.

I visit the venue in advance on the day to choose the best spots for the couple shoot.  I work out exactly how much time I have at every spot and how I want to take the photos. I normally get a timeline and sunset times to get your perfect sunset photos. I set up your timeline for you so that you do not have to worry about that.  We always want that WOW shot, so we make a huge effort to get it.  But you have to be game, because it can become sometimes a bit daring but is so worth it.


Here is a bit more about me as a photographer, Interview with Rouchelle Liedemann on Groot FM Ontbyt for KykNet.



When looking for your Photographer for your special day there are a few things you should ask your photographer.

1 – How many weddings have he/she shot

2 – What gear do they shoot with and what backup gear do they use.

The market is flooded with new upcoming photographers with low prices and I urge you to please be careful.


Please feel free to contact me to arrange a meeting to discuss your wedding day.

Timeline of your wedding is the most important thing of your wedding, let us take care of that for you!!!!!

One of the biggest headaches for a bride is to set up her timeline of the day, with experience with over 200 weddings, I can set up a timeline for you, so one thing less to worry about. I have a list of everything to think about when planing your wedding day, from confetti, time schedules, Logistics, table seating tips, and more.

Booking your Photographer  is a great deal of your wedding and you want someone  that know exactly what time to do when, your photographer should run the complete timeline of your wedding according to previous experience and perfect timing. SO feel free to contact me to help you with that.

Lots of Blessings on your hunt for the  best photographer for your budget.  How Nelis Engelbrecht Photography operates and price list.

At the end of the day it all comes down to you, if you want the crazy-amazing-never-tried-this-before-shot, lets do It.

I will get you there safely and will not put your beautiful wedding dress at risk.
