Thunder and Love Wedding Photography
We are Simon & Shan Heale – yup that’s right we are a pair of married professional Cape Town wedding photographers who love destination fine art weddings. We specialise in telling unique love stories and are available worldwide. There isn’t a wedding too far or too near we wouldn’t love to capture. Our style of photography is inspired by mountains, the ocean, adventure, stolen kisses, bonds, emotions and most of all love!
MORE ABOUT US

Favourite place in South Africa?
The Natal Midlands: you simply cannot beat the amazing mist, the green rolling hills, the cows and scenery; it is a magical place.
What advice would you give to brides and grooms?
We would tell brides and grooms that this day isn’t about their guests, it is about their love and their story! So stop worrying about making your guests happy and do you! After all, they will be happy if there is food and Champagne (who isn’t?)
