My Name is Adele van Zyl and I'm a portrait and Wedding photographer based in the Garden Route, Mossel Bay.

Making memories, capturing moments, having fun, creating smiles and telling your story, are all a passion of mine and being able to capture them on photos is an amazing privilege!

I hope you find something you like.

PS: When we started this, there were two of us. Adele van Zyl and Adele de Bruyn. For a long time we did our photoshoots together and had lots of fun. Sadly Adele de Bruyn had to move away to Cape Town and we decided to still continue our dream each on our own path.
You can still view Adele De Bruyn and her beautiful photography on her Facebook Page .

About Adele van Zyl :

If I have to describe myself i think the following describes me almost in full:
"I lead a simple life... I wake every day,  Worship my God, Love my husband,  Inspire my children,  Coach from my heart,  Work my art,  Build relationships,  Create adventure,  Smile on the beauty of life! A simple life, A normal life. The Good Life!"

I like to think of myself as a normal, flat on the earth kind of person. I always try to smile, because I believe that smiling keeps you young and happy. I also love helping people, cant explain exactly why, but it is just one of those things that gives me lots of joy!

Photography has always been a hobby of mine, even at school (back in the day when you only had film) I would always beg my grandmother to lend her camera to take pictures of my favourite events or friends.
When I got my first digital camera, my world opened up and I was set lose to enjoy all the colours and wonders of taking photos whenever I wanted, it was like a dream come true. Over the years I taught myself the whats and the hows, and absolutely loved doing it all the way.

A few months ago a wonderful door opened up for me, I met the brilliant photographer Michelle van Staden (Michelle Photography). She did my Maternity Shoot when I was pregnant with my son and also our family shoot when he was about 8 months old. She gave me an opportunity to learn under her guidance as her Assistant. It has been a wonderful journey so far and I'm learning so much from her. She is a perfect mentor and an wonderful role model!
