My Sons and I had a family photo shoot, what an amazing experience, not only did Bernadette put us at ease, we had such a fun time, my sons even enjoyed it.
Of course our photos were stunning as well.
Thank you BE!!!
Like every bride, I wanted everything to be perfect on my Wedding Day.
In my case it was a bit different because I had to plan my entire Wedding all the way from Dubai and I literally had no idea where to start. I searched for venues, décor, catering, accommodation and of course the most important part for me was the Photographer!
I searched every website, every Facebook contact, every referral and the search to me lasted for 8 months and 2 weeks to be exact.
I sent hundreds of emails, messages and received quite a few quotes but I just did not get that “THIS IS IT” feeling. Until of course my best friend back in SA referred me to BE Photography and was introduced to Bernadette Dippenaar via WhatsApp of course. From the word go we just had an indescribable connection. This was not your ordinary photographer she was more than a Personal Co-ordinator and I immediately stopped all my searching and made the best decision by BE Photography.
We communicated via email and WhatsApp and may I add I was not the easiest one, I literally bugged her more than once a day and never did she ever made me feel that I was disturbing. Once I received her quotation I had no more questions left and sealed the deal! She was just such a pleasure to work with, always friendly, helpful, humble and did not hesitate to help me even with arranging my Wedding Cake.
I flew to SA and a few days before the Wedding rushed to finally meet this Gem of a Photographer and boy was it a great feeling meeting her face to face. With a huge smile and welcome I knew that I made the perfect choice. We did not have much time yet it felt like we’ve known each other for years!
With all set and done my big day arrived and again she totally knocked me off my feet, she arrived even before her schedule to make sure she captured all the finer details and yes believe it or not she even stayed longer than what was agreed and I could feel how passionate this incredible woman is about her job. The day was a huge success and I could not have asked for a better Photographer. But wait it’s not over yet, 2 days after my wedding she did a first ever trash the dress shoot inside a swimming pool during winter! Now that to me is commitment, pleasure and pure bliss! I was so glad that I got to see her one last time before I left back for Dubai and till this day I can never and will ever forget her.
Bernie, you are such a blessing and it was such an honour and privilege to have you as part of my special day. May your business grow from strength to strength and I can assure any Bride who works with you will experience what I did! All the best.

BE Photography is the best investment I have made for my wedding day. On the day of the wedding I felt I was in such good hands. The professionalism and expertise of Bernadette left me amazed at how beautiful the day truly was. She captured the essence of the day in so much splendor and class. I could not have asked for a better photographer. The pictures we have will always allow me to get lost in the sweet memories of that day and for that I am truly grateful to Bernadette and her team.

Beste fotograaf ooit. Mooiste foto’s van ons spesiale dag. Enigetyd aanbeveel vir enige shoot!!
Bernadette is n great fotograaf! ek sal haar aanbeveel vir troues! Sy is n mens mens wat jou as bruid so laat goed voel en help jou graag. Haar persoonlikheid,kwaliteite en vele meer ,als net fantasties! May God bless you company with lost of love and support:-).
Thank you sooooooooooo much, Bernadette, for being part of our *special* day. You and your team captured each precious moment in such a beautiful way!
When we got engaged, I could not wait to contact you (even though it was a year and a half in advance). The memories of the fun we had with your energetic team at my sister’s wedding made this an absolute no-brainer. And what an excellent choice this was!
Your advice and suggestions before the wedding helped a lot. Thanks to you, we found a lovely (and affordable) wedding venue – one of the biggest stress factors when planning for the BIG day. The pep talks in the week before the wedding helped to calm my nerves.. even if it was only for a few minutes at a time.
On the day of the wedding you really brought your A-game! I felt at ease from the minute you walked into the room. You connected with everyone and instantly made them feel a bit more relaxed. You guided us where necessary and let us be ourselves the rest of the time.
I am not someone for serious formal photos. And that’s exactly what I love about you – you encouraged me from the start just to be myself. Oh boy, and how much fun was that! Pulling faces, acting crazy, laughing a lot, being naughty and sharing special moments with my hubby in front of the camera was freakin awesome!
Mwah, thank you, Bernadette!! You are totally *AmAZiNg*! Cannot wait for our next photoshoot 😀

Wow wat n voorreg was dit om so ‘n down to earth mens-mens te ontmoet. Amazing talentvolle fotograaf wat jou dadelik op jou gemak laat voel en jou die beste in jouself laat sien. You inspire and reflect Christ without saying a word! #lewensveranderend #bestefotograafooit!
Outstanding photographer and team. Makes u feel completely comfortable during boudoir shoots as well as my wedding shoot. Id recommend her to absolutely anybody.
Truly gifted! I reccomend her over all photographers. She not only treats her clients with utmost loyalty and respect,but makes them feel special and loved. Her work is brilliant. Personally what stands out most for me, is the fact that she can work with anybody no matter how different you are. I am wheelchair bounded and on my matricball day she was my photographer, she made me feel more than just a girl with wheels, but instead a princes.
BE Photography het die beste fotograwe wat voel soos deel van die familie. Die foto’s is professioneel en beeldskoon en die pakette is bekostigbaar en gee jou meer as waarde vir jou geld. Ons is ongelooflik bly dat ons BE Photography gekies het om ons spesiale dag vas te vang!
Een van ‘n bruid se grootste stress is gewoonlik om seker te maak dat sy ‘n goeie fotograaf het. Gelukkig was di teen stress wat my gespaar is. Die eerste keer wat ek Bernadette ontmoet het by ‘n ander troue het ek geweet sy gaan my fotograaf ook wees.
Sy het my ongelooflik spesiaal laat voel op my troue. As bruid voel mens reeds spesiaal maar Bernadette het net daardie ekstra iets wat anders is as die res. Sy is ‘n opregte mens met ‘n wonderloike oog vir foto’s. dis altyd ‘n ‘fun’ sessie wanneer sy my foto’s neem. Ek was gelukkig genoeg om haar weer te kon gebruik op my 1 jaar herdenking fotosessie. Jy kan van een ding seker wees op jou troue of enige ander fotosessie wat jy dalk wil doen, as jy Bernadette gebruik sal jy net die beste resultate ontvang en as iets ekstra sal jy ‘n ‘great’ tydjie hê. Dit was ‘n voorreg om haar deel te kon hê van een van my grootste ‘moments’ as vrou en mens by my troue.

Dear Bernadette (BE Photography)
With two photoshoots done by Bernadette, I cannot express my gratitude in words. Memories captured that will last a lifetime! Each image received was perfect, the position, quality…just everything. Her personality changed the shoot from just being a “photoshoot” to a real fun event, enjoyed by ourselves as much as our 3 year old. In the days leading up to the shoot, Bernadette stayed in contact, confirming weather conditions as well as ensuring that we are happy with our location we chose. She really did her homework, and after-service was excellent! We received our images on a neat personalised disc which we can now treasure forever. Bernadette, thank you for capturing our family and thank you for your outstanding quality of work, before the shoot, during the shoot as well as after the shoot. You will be our photographer for life!
Every opportunity I had working with Bernadette, turned into great experiences and lifelong memories.
She challenged me to get out of my comfort zone and try new things at various shoots. Which is great! She knows which angles work for you and which ones don’t. The best part about working with her is that she knows how to capture valuable moments and how to capture your personality in a picture.
Professional and well executed work.

Vir 6 jaar is BE Photography deel van Kaap Agri se belangrikste en ‘grendste’ funksie van die jaar, en ook die maatskappy se jaarlikse golfdag vir hul top verskaffers die dag daarna!
Haar vriendelikheid en innemende borrelende persoonlikheid dra baie by tot die gees van die dag wat vir baie spesiale oomblikke sorg. Haar unieke manier om met mense te werk sal enige kamerasku gholfspeler laat glimlag! Om na haar foto’s te kyk is soo om albei die spesiale dae te herleef. Daar gaan soveel detail en liefde in haar werk…iets wat mens nie sommer raaksien as dit nie opreg uit die hart is nie!
Bernadette is al ‘n ingeburgerde lid van die Kaap Agri familie!

Bernadette photographed our wedding in 2011 and I could not have been more impressed with the product she presented. Professional, personal and great quality! Since we have kept in contact and last year she did a budoir shoot for me for our 5 year anniversary. She made me feel extremely comfortable and the photographs were stylish and tasteful. I recommend her to everyone as her work is just exquisite.
