About us

Jambo! We’re delighted that you found Cheka – whether it’s the beach or the bush, we love shooting intimate weddings and elopements!

We often get asked why we love to shoot weddings so much. Weddings have their rules and in some ways they are very orchestrated events, you know what’s going to happen, you know when people are going to do what. And yet you know nothing. Every wedding is completely different, every couple adds something completely new to the day. We love being there to capture this individualism.

Our goal is simple – We want to give you the most stunning photos from your wedding day coupled with a style that’s deeply personal, just like your wedding. One that is not conventional, one that is not ordinary – but one that is very unique. Photos from your wedding day will probably be the only things that dont change with time – people change, venues change, styles change. Your photos will remain unchanged for years to come. We want you to be able to feel the same deep emotions, feelings and sensations many years down the line as you did on your wedding day. At Cheka, we do that through our photography.

Photography is our passion. We left behind a whole lot to pursue this dream. We don’t shoot for competitions or magazine exposure. We shoot for you. You alone. We believe nothing should distract us from shooting your story. Also for this very reason, we only take on a few select weddings every year so that we can give it all we have, and create those special memories for you. We are not your average mass market wedding photographers who will take on every wedding that comes along. We specialise in small intimate weddings and elopements.

If you are looking for extraordinary images from your special day, you have come to the right place. Contact us today! We would love to hear about your wedding.
