My story is the one with my wife, son and daughter... and me.

When I walk towards our bedroom, the hallway is filled with photos... and maybe some toys laying around. I glance at the photos on the wall. It's photos of us.

There's definitely some gaps between the timeline of our photos.

Everyone had a hard time the last couple of years. We aren't the exception. My wife and I lost our jobs during covid, but our perspective around 2021 is one of f*ck YEAH!! Because that's when we started our own journey.

My wife started Intiem Weddings, and I started Wouter Kleynhans Photo.

We didn't have a choice to do nothing and sulk. We have 2 kids (okay, in 2021 we had one and we only just found out about Klara before Covid came knocking). So you get up and you work even harder.

Fast forward to NOW... where I am updating my bio to a more recent version.

A version where my wife came in second as the AfriForum Entrepreneur 2022 for Intiem Weddings. A version where I've captured incredible weddings all over South Africa, with 3 UK booked weddings waiting in 2023.

A version where our kids are healthy, happy and just doing incredible.

Yes, life is tough. The last few years had moments of suckiness... but man, WHAT A JOURNEY.

Can't wait to fill our wall with more photos and memories.

Hi, I'm Wouter

Husband & Father

My wife, René, is my rock. She keeps me grounded when I get crazy dreams or when I want to book a holiday to the Kruger when we don't have the money or time.

She is the mother of our awesome son & beautiful daughter.

Retief and Klara brings colour to our day and more meaning to our lives.

I love a good red wine.
Die Hard is the best x'mas movie.
Coldplay had some awesome music.
Man United, and Scholsy.

And Stevie the TV is my escape.


André & BIANCA

You made our special day fun and stress free, You were our guide. Our house is now full of wedding photos. I smile when I walk past our Wedding photo’s - they are very emotional which is what we wanted. They managed to capture the joy, tears and excitement we were feeling at the same time. You are the best photographer in South Africa!!


We loved that his style was natural, candid and most importantly he focuses on capturing the raw emotions of people. No frills or awkward shots; just natural and simple yet classy images. Thank you Wouter for being a great photographer and a great friend


Our wedding was a casual affair so it's very important that our photographer feels like a friend (rather than a stranger). The photos turned out amazing despite the rain. He even went out of the way for our album which he personally hand delivered to our house!!

Thanks Wouter.
