Hello there!

You see that picture on the left of some guy? Well that's me and I create images just like the one you see above. I kinda tripped, fell, and stumbled into photography and I couldn't be happier! I started out working as a digital illustrator for a top design agency right here in Johannesburg, South Africa when one day I picked up a camera to start adding my own images to my digital creations. Once thing led to the next and now I pretty much have my camera permanently attached to my body. I've been lucky enough to work with some incredible people, travel to amazing places around the world and teach photography to people just as passionate about it as I am. 

I realised my love for creating images of people quite early on in my photographic journey. Stemming from my love of meeting new people and simply interacting with other humans, I used photography as a way to take that to the next level and show the world how beautiful we as humans are. 


Contact me now to discuss your wedding

I shoot a limited amount of weddings each year, please get in touch early to see if your date is still available. I'm currently based in Johannesburg and Cape Town although I shoot all over our beautiful country as well as abroad. Travel is encouraged so if you need me to come to where you are, I want to hear from you!


Capturing real moments

If the following series of images make you smile (even just a little), then you'll love the way I shoot. I pride myself in being able to capture candid moments and natural images. Hopefully you've been inspired by my wedding photography style and you can see it comes from a place of true emotion and passion.

Frequently asked questions

I believe that my images should speak volumes without me having to say anything, although some questions do arise. I've put together a list of some of the most frequent questions I get asked by clients. If your question isn't answered below, feel free to mail me at hello@sheldonevansphoto.com and I'll be happy to help! 

Are you available for travel?
Yes, absolutely! Just as I've said before, I've been lucky enough to shoot in some incredible places both inside and outside of South Africa. I try to keep travel as simple as possible. If airfare, a hotel and a car rental are required for my commission, then you'll simply be responsible for the direct reimbursement of the charges. No hidden costs, no trouble. 

Do you work with a second photographer?
I do not work with a second photographer although I will always use an assistant. He/she will be there there to help out with the carrying of gear and lighting equipment. The reason I do this is that you're booking me for "my" style and "my" work, sure a second shooter may be able to produce beautiful images, although they won't be in the style you've booked me for. 

How soon do I have to reserve my date?
As soon as possible is the honest answer. I've had bookings up to a year and a half in advance. 

How do I make sure I look amazing in my photos?
Firstly, don't worry about this too much, that's my job! 

Although, if you'd like to make my job easier the best I could suggest is make sure that there's adequate light at your wedding. The most important thing I look for as a photographer is beautiful light.  The softer, more natural light looks, the better you'll look! Pleasure ensure that your reception is not only candle/very dimly lit. The more light the better your images will look. If you'd like I can help with this in the pre-wedding meeting.

I don't live in South Africa, how do we meet before the wedding day?
This isn't a problem at all, I make this as easy as possible. My entire booking process takes place online and if you'd like to meet, a Skype meeting can easily be arranged.

Do you only use natural light?
I shoot with a variety of lighting gear and modifiers where needed, which my assistant is there to help carry.

Happy Clients

I can’t even begin to tell you how happy we are with the photos!

The amount of times I've said “My g*d!" or "“Holy Sh*t Sheldon!!” while looking through them! 

They came out exactly how we imagined and wanted. We feel like you captured the happiness of everyone and the beauty of the day perfectly! Anyone who doesn’t beg you to shoot their wedding after these shots is nuts! 

Seriously, I can’t even imagine where you’re gonna be in 10 years, it's insane how talented you are.

- Shan and Ash


You're an absolute legend bro! I call you bro because you made it feel like you've been a part of our family for years, and we loved that! Jen, said to me after the wedding that she was even convinced that we've been buds for years. Your energy is contagious. Thank you for being a part of our story man, you were awesome and your images speak for themselves.

- Alex and Jen


Thank you SO SO SO much for our photos! They are absolutely gorgeous!
I can't wait to share them with everyone and brag just a little, okay, a lot!

I'll get married again just to have photos taken again :)

- Marizca and Darryn

 

This is just a small note to say a HUGE thank you for being a part of our of wedding day!
We had a perfect day from start to end and it whizzed by in a blur of happiness and sunshine and we were so glad to have you and your assistant there capturing it all!

- Jonathan and Megan


Sheldon. Wow. What an experience it was having our wedding captured by you. Right from the get-go, that first day we met to discuss our wedding, I knew I could trust you! You treated us like we were your only clients, dedicating your time to us and making us feel special. You're amazing! And don't even get me started on the photies, OH MY WORD! I don't think anyone could've captured our day the way you did.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

- Patrick and Ella


I just wanted to thank you again for yesterday. Thank you for creating such a relaxed atmosphere and running around in the background doing what you do best! The images you took are beautiful!
