About Nolte Lourens

Hello and welcome.

So, who am I?

Professional wedding photographer, South African, and passionate amateur cook who simply enjoys life.
After all these years (16 and counting) photographing weddings I still enjoy the beauty of emotions and the atmosphere behind it. To be able to capture those special moments is the driving force that inspires me to this day.

What is my photography style?
Well, in photography terms it would be a mixture of documentary, portrait and editorial style. Or in other words it is the mixture of me:

  • trying to capture moments as they evolve during the wedding day, without being intrusive.
  • taking charge and creating portraits.
  • bringing the fun and laughter throughout the entire day, helping to dispel any nerves or wedding day ‘jitters’.

I try to make the photography an enjoyable, integral part of the wedding day, rather than just something that ‘has to be endured’.

Whether your wedding is in South Africa, Croatia or any other part of the world I will be happy to hear from you.

“We photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing, and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth can make them come back again. We cannot develop and print a memory.” ~Henri Cartier-Bresson
