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.

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.

In March 2014 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!
