Meet your Elopement Photographer in Cape Town


Hey there. I’m Dillon.

I am a full-time professional wedding and elopement photographer based in Cape Town. I shoot internationally and think that there is no better place than my home city.

I’ve been documenting weddings and elopements for 7 years and love telling stories and connecting with my couples. I am an adventurous soul. I love surfing, cycling, climbing, and being in the mountains.

My approach is a cinematic documentary. I always aim to capture moments with feeling. I want you to look back at your photographs years later and be transported back to that moment in time.

Cape Town has varied weather, so please make sure to pack warm clothes even if you are coming in the warmer months when you Elope to Cape Town. It is quite easy to get around in Cape Town; there are Uber taxis and MyCiti buses. The airport is about 20 minutes away from the city centre.
