Hi, I’m Sarina

A photographer in South Africa.

Hi, my name is Sarina Engelbrecht and I’m a Karoo wedding and portrait photographer currently based in Nieu-Bethesda, South Africa.  

Since childhood, photography has allowed me the art of observation and to fully express what I feel. This creative tool affords me the ability to capture the most beautiful, untouchable thing in the world – emotion. I am passionate about documenting Weddings by telling their stories through my art. The love, joy, laughter, and tenderness between family and friends are impossible to reproduce and I, therefore, take great responsibility & delight in positioning myself to freeze these moments in time.

With over 10 years of experience in the media industry my project portfolio also includes the roles of Director of Photography (DOP) and camera operator in the broadcast sector.

I look forward to telling your story as everlasting art!
