moments matter

creating a client experience that goes deeper than jaw dropping imagery - but is dripping with significance and meaning.

as photographers, our work goes so much deeper than "just taking photos"

We get to document some of the most epic and special moments in a couples life.

Creating imagery that growns more meaningful over time, that is real, raw and connected,leaving clients with more than just pretty photos, but with an unforgettable experience is what connect is all about.

People are their best when they can be themselves, and that's the hardest thing to do as photographers.

Feeling like you keep using the same old generic prompts and poses EVERYTIME?

Feeling like it's all up to you, to 'get that emotive shot' and feeling burned out and exhausted to 'perform' for your clients?

Getting the guy on board is a real struggle, and those real and candid moments are just not happening for you.

YOU CRAVE MORE - you crave more depth and connection in your work, and you want to create imagery that isn't fake , fabricated or posed, but HONEST, EMOTIVE AND CONNECTED.

learnt so much not only about photography but how to connect with people and why I started this journey into wedding photography.  I would recommend it to anyone, whether you're a beginner or a pro in the field - the level of connection in this workshop is remarkable!

Lika is an educator at heart- the information was succinct, with great practical take aways that have made an immediate difference in my business. That, and also incredibly deep, backed up by her years of reading and experience in capturing all sorts of people in love. The knowledge she shared was unlike anything I have ever come across before- and I've trawled the internet for wedding photography education. I feel a new confidence in my ability to photograph human connection like never before.

more about the teacher

I'm a coffee loving, introverted, plant buying and dog hugging human, who loves to travel and taking the road less travelled.

I love that wedding days are love stories, wrapped into one day. I believe moments matter and enabling human connection has been something so close to my heart, and is the heartbeat behind every photo I take.

I turned a hobby into a side hustle into a full time gig, and I've travelled all across South Africa, capturing love stories.

I break down all my hard earned lessons for you, so you can grow faster and find joy and meaning in your work like never before.
