So this is love

Our Story

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” 
― Ansel Adams

The best thing about what we do is that we love what we do. We are Reinhardt and Melanie, visual storytellers and seekers of the elegance in the everyday. We are a husband and wife team based in Johannesburg. Our own love story began at university and we have been together now for nine blissful years.

In 2010, we decided to follow our passion for visually capturing the tender moments of life and started Creative Emporium as a wedding photography business. With our background in film and video production, Creative Emporium soon expanded towards design projects as well as corporate video production. In 2014 we decided to split our interests.

 The wedding photography business is very special to us so we created a new entity just for weddings known as AndStory.

AndStory is a Wedding Photography company that focuses primarily on Bespoke Wedding Photography to give our clients the ultimate wedding photography experience. We want all our clients to get focused attention and so we have carefully selected our team to be part of AndStory and your story. We have a fondness for these celebrations of love and we aim to tell the beautiful and intimate stories of each special event through our camera lenses.  It is  one of the most important days in your life, so we strive to give it all the proper creative attention that it deserves.

“Our aim as visual storytellers is to find the wonder and emotion of the intimate moment. We incorporate our modern yet romantic style with a natural curiosity for the human truth and the sometimes unexpected beauty of the ordinary.”
