I had followed Sharyn’s photography for 7 years before we got engaged and for me she was a non-negotiable for my dream wedding. And wow was she better than we had ever imagined. Not only is she an incredibly talented photographer with an eye for the perfect picture, she is generous with her time and her care. She genuinely feels the whole day with you, doing everything in her power to capture it and make you feel so incredible at the same time. And she is a flipping awesome human who we just loved spending time with. My husband was quite nervous about our couples photos, but with Sharyn’s coaching and help he felt so comfortable and was able to just get lost in the fun of it all. We were unlucky enough to have a very rainy misty day on our wedding which i was devastated about because I was so excited for sunset “bangers”. Sharyn didn’t even bat an eyelid and spent another two hours with us the next day, producing some absolute magic. My only complaint about Sharyn is that she is so talented that choosing our favourites for the album was near impossible. Thanks Sharyn, you were a huge part of our dream wedding becoming a reality. And to any couples planning their wedding, you would not be in kinder, more talented and fun hands than Sharyns.

MY OH MY! After following Sharyn’s work for a few years, we were lucky enough to win a shoot with her in Cape Town. It’s one thing to make people feel comfortable while shooting (which she does SO well) and it’s another to deliver photos that blow your mind. I’m excited to fill our home with beautiful landscapes she captured of our little family (2 humans, a goldie and a frenchie). I LOVE how she incorporates nature and the surroundings to create living pieces of art. I would recommend her to anyone any day! Thanks for creating bangers Sharyn!

It’s hard to describe the feeling you get when you first meet Sharyn, but I’d say its even better than a good cup of coffee (if are a coffee person, which I totally am) and shortbread cookies on a cold day. She is such a warm and easy going person, which takes away a lot of the stresses attached to wanting your wedding day, including pictures, to be perfect. She is a good listener and offers professional guidance to make sure that you get the best.

Working with Sharyn was so much fun and she was able to quickly gel with our family and friends and make everyone laugh with her jokes. We joked that I had picked the bottom of the barrel by choosing a photographer from a small town, but in all honesty she may be from a small town, her work is world class. Thank you Sharyn for capturing our day so beautifully, we couldn’t have asked for more

Sharyn is every bit as creative, fun, adventurous and inspiring as I expected her to be (having stalked her on Instagram for many a year). Her artist eye, easy-going nature and undeniable passion distinguish her as more than a wedding photographer – Sharyn is an artist and it shows in her incredible work.

Sharyn pushes herself creatively, trying new techniques, angles and locations, which is why – in my opinion – she is the best kept “secret” out of South Africa’s best wedding photographers. Yes, she’s renowned in the Garden Route (as she should be) but soon the whole country (and beyond) will catch on. I’m so glad we’re ever-so-slightly ahead of that inevitable acclaim, which is why we booked her for our wedding immediately after our engagement shoot. Not taking any chances. Yay us! I left our engagement shoot with a sense that Jess and I would become friends with Sharyn. I write that not as a plea (but, seriously, Sharyn, please be my friend) but to convey that Sharyn is not only a brilliant photographer; she’s an awesome person. The kind you want sharing and capturing some of the happiest days of your life

Jess & Lara | Couple | Robberg

When you ask someone to drive 1400km for a photo shoot in Namibia and the response you get is: “I have waited my life to do this! “AMAZING, let’s do this! That’s the enthusiasm Sharyn brings to every shoot and it shows from the pictures. She was very well prepared, and that made the two shoots (evening and morning) so much more convenient. Showing us her ideas, and giving us the opportunity to try out. But also if we didn’t like the idea, no discussions. Very easy going working together. The flawless communication, her enthusiasm and the precise preparation, were the receipt for the most beautiful and special pictures than we could have ever imagined.

We now have one of our pictures printed on a huge glass plate hanging in our living room. It doesn’t only remind us of our honeymoon, but mostly of two days of fun with Sharyn (and Ted). The photo shoot in itself was the best activity of our honeymoon. We will be coming to Plet for more fun and pictures soon again.

Once again sharyn, thanks, you are the best!

Oh where to start… Sharyn is just a down right amazing human, she is down to earth, an animal and plant lover and absolutely hilarious.

My husband and I did our engagement shoot with her and weren’t exactly seasoned in photography space and were quite nervous, but she made us feel so comfortable and we honestly had the most fun at the Robberg Nature Reserve.

On our wedding day she was just as amazing, again made us feel comfortable and laugh and came up with creative ideas which is so helpful when you have a million things going on. She arrives and just gets on with it absolutely hassle free.

She is also so amazing at directing your bridal party (although not her job – Sorry Sharyn!), she is firm and helps things move along swiftly so as too not waste your precious time.

Our photos were out of this world beautiful – on both occasions and we couldn’t have dreamed of more😍 We really could not recommend her enough, she is accommodating, understanding and willing to help (especially with all the rescheduling with Covid). What a legend and BANGER of a human!!!

Cara & Matt | Wedding | Sky Villa

Sharyn is an absolute gem of a photographer! She truly is one of the kindest people I know, and she made our first time meeting her like we had known her for years. She took us adventuring through the beautiful Tsitsikamma forests when we first met, and a few months later photographed our wedding, as well as an additional shoot at Emily Moon.

Each time she took the most jaw-dropping photos. Our wedding photos are breathtaking and so uniquely us. Sharyn’s passion shines through, and she is pure magic behind the camera. She has the knack for making you feel so comfortable, and she really captures your true self in her work.

Sharyn is exceptionally kind, talented, and definitely recommended to anyone and everyone. We couldn’t thank her enough! She is truly worth her weight in GOLD!

Sharyn is absolutely fabulous! We really could not have asked for a better person to shoot our wedding day! Sharyn was so professional, yet relaxed and hilarious (bundu bashing to get that perfect shot). She made us feel so comfortable and the whole process was so seamless. And the PHOTOS! They came out so amazing and gorgeous! We literally cannot stop looking at them!

The photos come in the most beautiful box with a whole bunch of print outs. It’s a forever keepsake

We really are so grateful to have had Sharyn capture our special day! I don’t think anyone else could have seized our moments like she did!

Sim & Johann | Wedding | Peace Of Eden

Where do I begin…. Well FIRSTLY, I could not have asked for a better photographer because hands down, she is the BEST photographer (aka: below average photography) that I know of and SECONDLY, a good friend of mine! Even though I know Sharyn would prefer photographing dogs more than humans

So let me tell you a little bit about Sharyn…

Sharyn has a heart of gold and a driven passion for photography that keeps expanding with new adventurous ideas (BANGER IDEAS) that seem out of this world, (risky) but always a massive success! Sharyn walks her children (dogs) ALMOST every morning, sometimes gyms (well she says she does, mmm), drinks coffee all day (almond cappuccino, double shot thanks), and maybe champagne/cocktails – depending on what mood she is in…

Anyways, leading up to Casper and my wedding day, I told Sharyn many times that Casper is very stubborn when it comes to someone telling him what to do or posing for photos. Therefore, on our wedding day Sharyn was extremely brave and told Casper he can aim the Champagne at her as she takes the photo, Casper had the biggest grin on his face because all he wanted to do was hit her with the cork, (I am sure he was not being serious) but after all the photos and receiving them, I have never seen my husband soo satisfied and boastful about how AMAZING Sharyn is as a person and photographer. On the wedding day, Sharyn went the extra mile and brought me a cappuccino from Delia’s (thoughtful) and honestly made my wedding day even more enjoyable and adventurous. Sharyn always goes the extra mile to capture moments you never thought of seeing and made us feel super comfortable.

Sharyn is a phenomenal Photographer and I would never second guess her. I recommend her to almost everyone I meet or are friends with that are getting married and trust me, Sharyn is worth every penny! (getting the best of both worlds here).

LASTLY, please make sure you have really good cake or dessert at your wedding, and make sure to give some to Sharyn, she will be over the moon! (PS: she has gone vegan now, so alternatives will be much appreciated)

We were lucky enough to meet Sharyn while attending a wedding of our friends and while we were living on the Garden Route, it was a no brainer to contact Sharyn for our engagement shoot.

She was excited and that added to our excitement of our engagement. It was such a fun shoot and she made us feel so comfortable and the photos reflected this.

Sharyn also had great communication and her delivery times of our photos with a beautiful flash drive were great. Thank you Sharyn for your authenticity and adding such joy to our experience!

Sharyn is truly amazing! We really hit the jackpot when it comes to photographers. Choosing a wedding photographer can be a pretty daunting task but from the moment I saw Sharyn’s work I knew she had to be the one, and our expectations were definitely exceeded. I love most that every picture captured tells a story and that Sharyn went out of her way to make recieveing our wedding photography parcel as special as possible.

We received a beautiful wooden box with our names and wedding date ingraved on it that held our USB and some of our favorite photos printed out, presented beautifully among some special sovienurs that Sharyn had collected on our wedding day like the confetti thrown and some moss that she had saved from the forest at our wedding venue it was like opening up a time capsule and that to me was such a special touch. We were extremely impressed with the turn around time in which we received a sharable link to some of our wedding photos which was within a matter of days! She is also a dream to work with, everything flows naturally and lots of fun and laughs are guaranteed to be had.

I can’t recommend Sharyn highly enough, can’t wait to work with her again

Louise & Hilton | Wedding | Peace Of Eden

Being a camera shy family we were so surprised by how fun and comfortable it was with Sharyn, and her photos is oh so worth it! It completely changed my opinion about doing family shoots, it’s a must! We will definitely see her again.

Sharyn was our wedding photographer and we couldn’t have made a better choice! She was a pleasure to work with, and the photos are stunning!

Before the wedding we met up for coffee to discuss ideas and make sure our personalities gelled (they did!). In the madness running up to the day she was a calm voice to talk to, and on the day she was always there to capture the real moments. She also made the couple shoot straight after the ceremony really comfortable.

We really love her raw and grungy, and yet still clean and elegant photographic style.

Your wedding day flies past so quickly, you barely remember what happened – we are so glad we have Sharyn’s photos to relive the day.

Lizani & Peter | Wedding | Nature’s Valley

I am so grateful to Sharyn for capturing our wedding so beautifully and so naturally! From the moment she arrived she was professional and worked incredibly hard to take the best photographs possible. We also love the edited photos which were received timorously and in a stunning engraved box with lovely personal touches. I would highly recommend that you stop reading this right now and book her ASAP!

She responds quick to any emails and questions and she is a extremely talented photographer- couldn’t be happier with my wedding photos. We couldn’t meet up with her before our wedding and had to meet her on the day but this wasn’t a problem at all as she is very comfortable to be around! Definitely highly recommend her!

We LOVED our photos and could not more more pleased with the whole experience working with Sharyn.

Jeani & John | Wedding | Emily Moon

A photoshoot with Sharyn has become part of our December holiday ritual. She is the most wonderful person and extremely talented! She brings out the best in us. And it shows on every photo. The kids just love to strike a pose or give their best smile to “Tannie Sharyn”. Booking with Sharyn is a wonderful experience. We book online, do the shoot and by the time we get home after our holiday a beautiful package arrives with our photos.

Thank you for beautiful memories Sharyn

Passion, professionalism and personality.

Each of Sharyn’s photographs reflect her bubbly personality, her depth, her uniqueness and her keen eye. She brought calmness and humor to our wedding day and gifted us with the most exquisite, timeless photographic memories. We have received so many compliments on our wedding photographs and could not have asked for a better photographer for our special day. She brings exclusivity and her images stand out in a flooded market for all the right reasons. She is exceptionally talented, passionate and a true artist.

Claire & Chad | Wedding | Dirty Therapy

When I first saw Sharyn’s photographs, I knew I wanted her to be the one to capture our special day. It was so quick and easy to get an idea of what it would cost us with her simple wedding calculator on her website. Once I had made contact she was quick to reply and I had a quote within the hour. On our wedding day, Sharyn arrived early and got straight to work. We did not even know she was there. When it came to taking bridesmaid photos, she asked us to do the most fun things, like jump on the bed! She made us feel so comfortable. The photos of our ceremony give such a true reflection of the emotion that everyone felt that day. Looking at these pictures allows us to relive those amazing moments. We also get to relive every moment of fun, laughter and joy we experienced at our reception. Sharyn caught dancing, celebration and love between family and friends on every photo.To anyone looking for a wedding photographer, Sharyn is professional, on time and so much fun to be around. I would definitely recommend her to any couple for their special day.

Thank you so much for the beautiful photos of our wedding last October!

The first time I saw the pics on your website I actually shed a tear; the way you capture emotion and love is exquisite, and your ability to photograph special moments without intruding really showed through. Our engagement shoot with you was such fun! We love the playful and loving pictures you took, and you really caught the essence of what we wanted – even when you had to steel your nerves being around the giant carthorses! I will always love that pic of the inquisitive foal sniffing at your lens! We had a blast and we knew the wedding photos were going to be stunning.

The wedding day was such a great time! Having you and Michelle there all day with us was such fun; you were both so relaxed and you laughed with us at every moment. Michelle, you were a legend – stepping in to lace up my corset while making me giggle like crazy!
The photos you took will forever be some of our most precious memories. You caught special family moments, meetings between loved ones and tears of joy being shed all around. Your relaxed shooting style helped us get through the stress of posing and then you were there to capture us just having fun together.

We would love to shoot with you again one day and we are so happy that you were there to capture our wedding day. We would recommend you in a heartbeat! Thanks for everything!

Katrina & Stu | Wedding | George Botanical Gardens

Since I started praying for my husband I knew that my wedding day would most likely be one of the most precious memories. Our paths crossed, Sharyn Hodges, in my opinion the kindest most down to earth photographer I have ever met. Throughout our planning Sharyn gave us minute by minute guidelines, which smoothened our day to such an extend that we were ahead of schedule. On meeting the gentle spirit making her way between make-up, seven bridesmaids, moms and flower crowns I realized that it was grace having Sharyn as our wedding photographer. Since that moment Sharyn was capturing more than picture, she snatched relationships, moments, laughs and the most beautiful scenery the eye could meet. Nothing came in the way for one more ‘banger’ as she was calling it being captured. Our wedding pictures tell of hundred moments an thousand emotions, one promise being made and we would have non other that this amazing person there to capture them. Sharyn blended in with our guests, brought a calmness to the day and became out friend. We love to send time celebrating the memories for ever captured by her. She still is such a blessing to us and honestly highly recommend Sharyn Hodges.

Hiring Sharyn to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! She made us feel so comfortable and at ease and managed to capture all of our special moments without us even realizing it! Her adventurous spirit perfectly aligned with ours, and it really felt like we made magic happen during our formal shoot! At the end of the day we felt like we were saying goodbye to a friend, not just our photographer! Sharyn is so talented, and a true gem!

Joni & Adrian | Wedding | George

When my husband and I were sitting planning our wedding, day in and day out for months, we were constantly stressed by all the different elements that had to fall into place to make our big day as perfect as we wanted it to be. And with constant communication with an army of suppliers, the one that made me know I didn’t have to worry about any part of her role in my wedding was Sharyn. From the first email to the day of the wedding, Sharyn is nothing short of passionate about what she does and her excitement to make our day as special as we wanted it to be was so evident in any conversation we had with her!

The minute I met Sharyn I felt like I had known her forever – she is a bundle of joy and happiness and you feel like you have been friends for a lifetime! I didn’t feel stressed once about our wedding pictures, I didn’t feel like I needed to break down what I wanted in terms of pictures – Sharyn is so talented and so experienced that you just need to show up on the day and the rest was under control. I won’t forget our giggles when I was chased by a horse and am so happy that moment was shared with my husband and Sharyn because the pictures that compliment that moment – priceless!

Sharyn – thank you for everything! The pictures are more beautiful than I could ever have imagined! Our house has been filled with our most special images (that took ages to choose because all of them were incredible!). And the personalised box we received – you truly think of every detail! When Bryce and I renew our vows, you better believe we are calling you up to capture those moments too! Incredible service, such a wonderful person, very professional but also someone I consider a friend! Thank you!

Really awesome experience!! Sharyn captured and organised my surprise engagement and my wedding. She is really proffesional and sends the edited photos always on time. I would prefer her for any adventure shoots.

Sharyn captured our wedding in a unique and magical way. Despite the strongest wind on the day, she made sure our photographs looked natural, fun and wind-free.

All our photographs came out so beautifully. I would highly recommend Sharyn.

Melanie & Berno | Wedding | Keurboomstrand

Sharyn created absolute beauty on our special day. She not only captured the beautiful moments of the day, but also the unexpected and true moments of a wedding (people bumping into each other on the dance floor, the family pet sitting on laps while the bridesmaids get ready, my little nephew pulling some ninja moves on the dance floor). It’s these moments that we loved the most.

Sharyn makes wedding photography an adventure. It was some of the best highlights of our day, hiking Robberg Nature Reserve to get the perfect shots. She is a talented artist, that brings humour, calmness and sense of uniqueness to the table with her moody photographer.

Thank you for capturing all our special memories!

Sharyn is not only the MOST talented photographer, she is also one of the warmest, down-to-earth and kindest humans I’ve met. We had our engagement shoot with Sharyn, and the photos are breathtaking.

She will also be shooting our wedding and I’m beyond certain she will deliver. My fiancée and I were concerned about being awkward in front of the camera, but Sharyn made it feel like second-nature. She is worth every cent, and more.

Maxine & Steve | Couple | Robberg

My “now” husband only had one request for our wedding day – Sharyn Hodges. Partly for her gorgeous beautiful dogs and partly for her incredible photography style!

She did not disappoint!

The weather was probably one of the worst days of the year, but Sharyn so happily embraced it with us. She even helped us out with a little “dryer” repeat shoot a few days later to make sure we were happy with all our photos.

We were so comfortable with her and would recommend her any day!

Sharyn – you a champ x

I got engaged! And now the time had come when I got to plan my dream day. I have always had an obsession with photos and I needed the perfect photographer to capture my special day. We knew that we wanted to get married in Plettenberg Bay, so I decided to research photographers in the area. I came across Sharyn’s Facebook page, the Instagram account, immediately became obsessed and decided that she would be our photographer. Luckily she was available for our wedding date, but we would have 100% changed our date just so she could be there.

I wanted to meet up with her before we got married so I could get a sense of what she was like, and isn’t she just the absolute sweetest! We immediately connected over our mutual obsession with dogs, I could see her passion for art shine through her eyes whenever she talked about what goes into her photos… and she liked coffee. It was like meeting an old friend, and somehow after meeting her, I had a feeling that we would be having more coffee dates in the future.

The big day arrived and Sharyn fitted in with the family so beautifully! She made Andy feel so comfortable in front of the camera he was actually being natural and smiling, only something I’ve been trying to do since we started dating! She kept on screaming “BANGERS!” “What models!” “Andy those TATTOOS!” And we couldn’t stop smiling, our faces were sore from laughing so much and we just had so much fun!

A while later our photos arrived and I was honestly in tears. She captured not only the moments but the moments in between those. She caught the glints in our eyes, the smirks between the smiles and the emotion in every moment. This woman isn’t just a photographer, she captures moments and she creates art. She deserves to win all the awards and she has such a bright future ahead of her! I highly recommend you Sharyn! Not only as a photographer but as a person! I cannot wait for our future photo shoots. I’ll see you soon

Working with Sharyn was so much fun and she was able to quickly gel with our family and friends and make everyone laugh with her jokes. We joked that I had picked the bottom of the barrel by choosing a photographer from a small town, but in all honesty she may be from a small town, her work is world class. Thank you Sharyn for capturing our day so beautifully, we couldn’t have asked for more
