Liz Bharo Photography
As a creative and artist, it has always been a focus of mine to see and express the exquisiteness and story of each moment. Photography is a method of powerful storytelling – either honest or imaginatively created. The lovely pleasure of working in the Photography, Fashion & Art industry, is that my work allows me travel throughout the world to photograph designer couture and bespoke occasions. My extensive travels have included: United Kingdom, France, Netherlands, New Zealand, United States of America, South Africa, Brazil and Argentina. With a background in fine art and human studies, I have found my sweet spot – this has resulted in dynamism and creativity in my work, as I get to experience different cultures and places. To highlight enthused moments and expose the elegance of bespoke occasions has become a photographic approach and artful technique for capturing luxury weddings throughout the world. Whether I capture casual portraits, intentional creative concepts for fashion designers, or bespoke occasions, style and elegant expression is treated holistically. Get in touch as I would be delighted to capture your portrait, project or occasion in timeless luxury storytelling.

What advice would you give to brides and grooms?
Your wedding is a magical day, celebrating the union of your love, friendships and family. It is one day (in most cases). Be sure to enjoy the day! Make proper use of your suppliers – regardless of the type of wedding suppliers, they are there to ensure that your day remains a stunning celebration. The suppliers are the wedding team that will take care of all the behind the scenes processes. So don’t ever worry. Live and enjoy your wondrous day!
