Yvette Gilbert Photography

23 Vans Road, Tokai, Cape Town


Yvette hails from Cape Town, South Africa. She has shown a love for all things creative since an early age. She initially studied fine arts and showed a great talent for drawing and painting in most mediums. However after obtaining her first camera, she realised the extent to which her talent and creativity can be explored by taking up photography. Initially as a hobby, she started to hone her knowledge of photography and not long afterwards made the jump to professionalism.

When it came to the option of which field to break into, she saw an opportunity in the western cape as a wedding photographer. She is now rated as one of the best wedding photographers in South Africa. Her passion for photography is matched by her passion for developing relationships with her clients that last. Often her wedding clients will approach her again for maternity, baby and family shoots as the years go by. In addition to these relationships, she also exhibits the highest level of discretion and confidentiality regarding her clients.

Drawing energy and inspiration from the world around her, Yvette has developed a style of photography that follows the story of the day from beginning to end, a story that can be re-lived years later through her images. She has often been complimented on her ability to make her clients feel at ease and has been known to calm many a bride's nerves before the wedding! She believes that a good photographer is there to capture the feeling of the wedding without dictating it and becoming a nuisance.

Yvette is currently based in Cape Town, South Africa and is available for weddings both nationally and internationally.
