All About Mauritius Photography

About

I am Milya van Heerden, I have been a Wedding Photographer for 15+ years in South Africa. We recently relocated to the Wedding & Honeymoon island of Mauritius.

I am Milya van Heerden, I have been a Wedding Photographer for 15+ years in South Africa. We recently relocated to the Wedding & Honeymoon island of Mauritius.

We are happy to capture Destination weddings: We have shot most weddings in South Africa, also many African countries, Venice Italy, Paris France and Mauritius.

What makes me different than ‘most’ photographers out there?

I start by doing a pre-wedding shoot for you – this could be a day or 2 before the wedding – we will during this meeting discuss the setup for the wedding and how I will plan my day to capture every moment for you. We will then have a photo session – this helps for us to get to know each other better – and for you to feel more comfortable with the photographer on the day rather than posing for a complete stranger… Lots of the posing we will be doing during this shoot will act as a practice run for the wedding so you know exactly what I mean when I pose you in a certain way. This saves lots of time during the actual wedding day.

During the time I spend at your wedding (from preparations to end of formalities at your reception) I take Unlimited photos. ALL of these taken will be edited within less than a week of your wedding. You receive ALL photos taken, as this is ultimately ALL you have left after the day is over. All will be hi-resolution with no watermarks (no company name on it) Should you wish to have a ‘Trash the dress’ or just a ‘get the dress wet’ shoot the next day (if you prefer not to do it on the actual wedding day) we will capture all of this for you to – we like to tell a story

With editing, I will do some special effects on some of the photos – but I do believe over edit is more for photos that need fixing… I rather shoot the photo right from the start.

I will also make a selection of photos – to tell a story – and add this into a slideshow for you with your choice of background music which can already be shared with family and friends within a few days of the wedding, who could not make the wedding
