Dear Desmond and Vera
When going through your portfolio I was in awe of your work! Never did I imagine that my Styled Shoot video would be so AMAZING! I absolutely loved working with both of you, you are down to earth and easy to get along with which made the experience of working with you so enjoyable, relaxed and fun. You have great attention to detail which is very important to me and any client. The drone footage was unexpected and added such a nice touch to the video!. I am excited and cannot wait to work with you in the future, your work is PERFECTION!

We did not know what to expect at first but Desmond and Vera had such a lovely presence and quickly made us at ease. We quickly got used to the cameras and the rest was a breeze, it was like having fun with two best friends. We would recommend them to anyone, they are professional and also lovely people to work with and we cannot wait for them to shoot our wedding!"

WORDS FROM THE COUPLE:
We were recently privileged to have Imagenheart provide the videography at our wedding. From our very first interaction with Desmond and his team, we felt an immediate sense of trust in his capabilities to capture all of the special moments on our special day.
The team at Imagenheart went above and beyond, and they were successful in exceeding our expectations. Their professionalism, experience, creativity and artistic abilities all came together to capture the love that filled the air on our wedding day. Thank you Imagenheart!!

Gert and Leandri
We were so honoured when we were asked to capture this special day. Having known Leandri since she was a little girl, it was something different to see her plan and finally walk down the isle towards the man of her dreams.
Set on the beautiful Kingna Distillery, the wedding showcased the best of rustic Montagu feeling, yet the elegance and charm not often found. Leandri & Gert was truly a beautiful couple to capture on film and their love for each other very clear. I have never seen a groom smile so much. The speeches were heartfelt and a day to be remembered to everyone who attended.

What a beautiful day it was! Andre and Grethe got married under the lush green trees and open sky. What a honour to have captured this very special day
Kim and Adrian has definitely been one of the highlight of this year for us. They came all the way from the USA to have their wedding celebration in South Africa with friends and family. Both of them grew up in South Africa but met in America.
Not even the rain could keep this day from being very special and Zorgfliet is the ideal location as it is set between the dramatic landscapes of the winelands.

Shani and Gerrit are from the West Coast and both love the outdoors. Surrounded by plenty beautiful landscape scenery, Saldanha was the perfect place to say their I do’s. Their wedding ceremony was held at the Dutch Reformed Church in Saldanha, and the reception followed at Blue Bay Lodge with its breathtaking views of Saldanha Bay. We had a lot of fun capturing the various emotions and beauty of this truly special day. It was clear the love and affection in the looks between the couple, and we could see Shani's dream wedding come to life as she walked down with her wedding dress, miniature costly like cakes each guest received and all the details that sparkled upon this special day. A fairytale wedding indeed
Tanya and Bertie was one of the sweetest couples I have worked over the years. A lot of time was spent on making sure that this day was memorable to the guests with lots of attention to details. From the umbrellas, beach shoes, the incredible first dance, firedancers and so much more. Strandkombuis was the setting for this beautiful day and the dramatic seascape ensured a perfect sunset finish to an incredible wedding day
Congratulations Tanya and Bertie
