“Thank you Stella for making our wedding day sensational. You were there for us right from the start of the planning process helping us structure our special day so that it ran smoothly. On the day I was blown away by how you were the central force of our day making sure everything just happened around us so that we just relaxed and enjoyed every moment and had fun! You truly captured the emotions of ourselves, family and friends on our wedding and we were astounded by the creative take on our wedding photos. Its been such a lovely thrill looking through them all after the big day and have the same emotions flood back to remind us how very special it was. Thank you so much again, our wedding day was perfect because of you!” Lindel & James

Dearest Stella. We are blown away. Filled to the brim with emotion. Overfilled actually…Truly Stella your photos of our wedding not only brought back every memory to life in such immediate fashion, but captured the moments as art…Emotional art…We are without words after seeing our wedding pictures. They are absolutely incredible! We are delighted at the photographs you did for us. Words cannot express how overjoyed we are…they are beyond amazing…You are an incredible photographer and captured every moment and emotion so perfectly (its hard not to tear up looking back on our special day) If only we videoed us looking at them for the first time you would see how, with every image, we were so delighted.We have already sent the link to family and some friends …Some of the comments included “best wedding photos I have ever seen!!!”  Our deepest gratitude again for capturing every special moment of the happiest day of our lives together thus far. Thank you thank you thank you! Candace & Chris

“How do I explain how I love my Ryan? How can I get people to understand the feeling I have in my heart for this human? I didn’t think that anybody would be able to help me express my unforgettable love for him. But the unique artistic talents of Stella Uys, proved that this love could be captured. And the gentleness of this beautiful soul with my disabled brother-in-law is a testament to the incredible person Stella is. From the second I met Ryan I knew he was my puzzle piece. I suppose Stella documented the finished Puzzle. My favourite photo is the one where we are sitting at our table and he is looking at me. What a moment that look represents! And the precious images captured of me walking myself down the isle with the photo of my dad and the picture placed on the chair next to my mom has healed a space in my heart that I never thought could be filled again. Its hard to remember elements of that day as all I saw was Ryan. But with the lifetime of memories Stella captured it will be treasured forever. ” All our love Lauren & Ryan

 Stella you are phenomenal. We love the photographs. They brought tears to our eyes! Thank you so much for all your hard work.We  feel really fortunate that you were a part of our special day! You are great at your craft! Nicole & Gareth

Baie dankie Stella. Ek kyk heeltyd oor en oor na die fotos en probeer elke oomblik weer herleef… jyt presies gedoen soos David Alan Harvey se:” Don’t shoot what it looks like, shoot what it feels like”. “Photographers have a duty to think far more about the stories they are trying to tell-what are they trying to say and who are they trying to say it to. Their question to themselves should be ‘has the story been told before’ and if so ‘how can I tell it differently’.” -Adrian Evans-. Dankie dat jy ons spesiale dag gevries het in onvergeetlike oomblikke en ons storie uniek vasgevang het saam met elke gevoel in elke foto. Brigitte & Tian

Hi Stella, Eeeeeiiiikkkk!! It has been some time since we have been left in awe. The photos are absolutely beautiful!!! We were so nervous looking for a photographer for our wedding. We kindly thanked our friends and family who kept suggesting their photographers, but knew in our hearts that we wanted something different. We didn’t want to settle for a wedding album full of posed, generic shots. We wanted a photographer who would be able to capture the story of our love for each other from a unique point of view, some say a beloved point of view, so we felt like we hit the jackpot when we came across your blog!! We cannot thank you enough for the photos, which delighted us from the moment we first received them, and continue to do so whenever we look at them. It is very satisfying that whenever we show them to people they all comment, without hesitation as to how fantastic they are!! Not only that, but the commitment that showed in ensuring we were at ease, comfortable and happy with the shoot ; exceeded our expectations. Despite the weather, you went beyond the point where other photographers would have given up and persevered to get the shots we hoped for. We would be more than happy to recommend you as it is hard to think of a better package – a great photographer, value for money and perhaps more importantly, a friendliness and commitment that cannot be faked. Once again, our heartfelt thanks. Marli & Andre

Liefste Stella, “What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce” -Karl Lagerfeld Ek kon dit nie beter beskryf as soos hierbo nie, dis waarom ons so dankbaar is dat jy elke emosie van ons troudag kon vasvang in ñ foto virewig… Ons foto’s is asemrowend mooi en vandat ons dit gekry het kon ons nog nie ophou kyk nie! Ons familie en vriende is ook mal daaroor en ons kry baie komplimente als te danke aan jou!! Ek was baie senuweeagtig toe ek n fotograaf moes kies, want die fotograaf naas die trourok is die belangrikste ‘must have’! Maar,  nadat ek op jou webblad was, het ek onmiddellik geweet jy gaan ons fotograaf wees, want jy vang regte emosie vas! Stella, ek sal jou aan enige toekomstige bruidspaar aanbeveel, want jy is waarlik n talentvolle fotograaf! Baie dankie! Liefde en groete. Roxaan en Kevin

When Bobby and I were searching for our wedding photographer we took one look at your website and received one email from you and knew you were perfect for us!!!!! We were very  impressed by the exceptional way you seemed to immerse yourself in your subject matter. I’m sure most artists believe that their art is a personal extension of themselves, but in your case it really is! This is evident in the way you intuitively know how to capture people and moments, even the seemingly insignificant ones. But what really stood out for us was the way you seem to capture the very essence of your subject. You have a rare gift for understanding the personalities, emotions, and underlying feelings of an event. You certainly did this for us.  We will treasure this pictures forever.  You were friendly, professional, and really put us at ease.  You helped to make our day special and we will be forever grateful for the beautiful pictures! There are just three words in which we can conclude: “WOW, WOW AND WOW…….” The photos you took of us on our special day was truly  AMAZING. Your work is just so phenomenal!!! We have received so many great compliments about our photographs and we will definitely be recommending you to anybody we know who will be getting married in the future.  Bobby and Nicola
