Nice to meet you! I'm Zanri, the proud owner of Silk Photography. I am a natural light Wedding and Lifestyle photographer based in Stellenbosch, South Africa. I recently completed my BA Degree in Visual Communication Design at Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography, where I majored in Art Direction.
I started my business at the young age of seventeen with an entry level camera and just one lens. I learned the ins and outs by assisting and second shooting for amazing and talented photographers like Daniel West and Melissa Meyer, just to name a few.
In my spare time I love to read poetry and quotes. One of my favourite quotes is from Coco Chanel: "Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance." I live by this quote and try to implement it with every photo I take, so that the focus can be on an intimate moment between loved ones and their story.

My other half - Jacques
You'll probably meet Jacques at some point be that on a shoot or a wedding day as he is my go - to - guy. He drives me around to shoots, carries around my bags and step ladder (I'm a bit on the short side), holds my reflector when needed and lastly, he's my human tripod. Without him I probably wouldn't have been where I am today.
Peonies and Tulips
I love flowers! It brings me so much joy - to look at and to photograph. My favourite flowers are white peonies and tulips and you'll definitely see them one day at my wedding!
I have a little black bundle of joy at home called Cloe and you guessed it - she's a Scottish Terrier. I've had her since I was twelve years old and she loves to pose for photos.
Simplicity is Elegance
As I said, I love simplicity. By taking on this approach you're taking away the clutter and really focusing on just what is and seeing the beauty in just that.
