I'm Des from Desiree Dales Photography. I'm a natural, real moments, love the laugh-out-loud type of photographer from Kloof, KwaZulu Natal. I'm married to the best of the best and have a beautiful family which I adore.

I got my first camera (film..!) when I was probably eight years old. I saw it in a drawer of my dad's and begged him to buy me a spool of film. I loved everything about it. I have no idea what make it was but it was so much fun. I saved up my pocket money to print the pics and couldn't wait to see what I had captured two weeks later. I have a lot of interesting photo's of my most unwilling models (my sister and niece).

Since then, I've had the privilege of working with some amazingly talented wedding photographers and am loving this industry more and more!

I love taking photo's. I love the nervous energy, the children who have been bribed with treats, the brides who are beautiful inside and out, the love captured, the funny "please delete that one" moments and the late-night editing sessions.  I love the images that shouldn't work, but yet, they're perfect. My job is so different each day and I look forward to it every single day.
