Our clients say…

“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 splendour 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.”

“Bernadette has the ability to capture moments that aren’t always seen by one self. Our wedding went by so quickly and we were so privileged to see these moments in time of happiness through her photography. Captured in time forever.  A true talent and a wonderful person. I would recommend her to anyone for any occasion. Much love.”

Elmarie D Carstens

“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!”

Sunel Visser

“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, and 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 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.

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.

XO Monique from Dubai”

Minette Fourie

“Outstanding photographer and team. Makes u feel completely comfortable during boudoir shoots as well as my wedding shoot. I’d recommend her to absolutely anybody.”

Caron Bouwer

“Truly gifted! I recommend 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 matric ball day she was my photographer, she made me feel more than just a girl with wheels, but instead a princes.”

Mache Smith

“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.

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.”

Anika van Niekerk

“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 boudoir 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.
