Meet your Namibia Wedding Photographer

June Photographer

Hi, I’m June, not just a photographer, I am a visual, storyteller for loved-up souls. I thrive on weddings and elopements and can’t wait to get stuck in your love story.

On a normal day when I am not slinging cameras, I’m most likely running around after my one-year- old, tending to my 50+ houseplants, going on long aimless drives singing my heart out, or hanging with my husband.

I’m a photographer who cares about the bigger picture, the intimate moments, and your experience. My work is 100% inspired by your story,  your connection,  your love, and how it all comes together.
